TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Thank you for the cup of cold water when I was thirsty. I appreciated the smile you offered and the home you opened to Me. The food you gave Me brought hope and the shoes from your feet a path. I Am the least of these.
AS UNTO THE LORD
Judgment is a sobering topic, especially when it comes to the Bible and you realize that judgment is coming to all of us.
The Great White Throne Judgment is a test of holiness and there is only One who is holy and His name is Jesus. If you have put your hope in the Lord Jesus Christ, know that Jesus passed that test for you. He has put your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life as if you passed the test.
The second test, The Judgment Seat of Christ, is a test of how you served. This is where you are rewarded.
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” – Hebrews 11:6
The understanding of being rewarded is faith-based because it’s the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Amen. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3 that Jesus Christ is the One who laid the foundation and you’re building on top of that foundation He’s given you.
“But Pastor Troy, I don’t know anything about a foundation. What foundation?” Well, how about the fact that you’re saved? That’s the foundation of how you live the rest of your life. From there, you do works that introduce people to the Kingdom and that is what you get rewarded for – doing things for others as unto the Lord.
So, will your works die with you or are you serving in a way that doesn’t come from Texas but it comes from heaven? Serve with love and reflect the Father and you’ll find your rewards stored up for you in heaven.
