"And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works." Revelation 20: 12-- King James Version
When we stand before God, there will be no favorites. It will not matter if we had a lot of money or a little money. It won't matter if we had a large home with a swimming pool and two cars, or if we had a small home with one car. What will matter to Him is how we lived our lives and how many people we loved to Jesus.
We can talk all day long about the Love of Jesus, but if we never put actions to our words, they are meaningless. Joyce Landorf, a well known speaker and author said on one of her teaching tapes "Someone came up to me and said "Hi, how are you, I love you, got to go, bye" Joyce said that she told her "Well, that's not enough"! Joyce said that she needed people to put their arms around her and prove that God was working all things out for her good.
O dear friends, there is nothing as important as spreading the Love of Jesus. This should be our first priority in our lives, to serve Him and spread His Love. Everything else should take second place to Him. If our jobs, our activities, and our loved ones come before Him, then we have left our first love.
A couple of months ago, I read where this person is listed in a well known national directory. This is wonderful, but if our names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life, we are lost and on our way to an Eternity without Jesus. Have you said yes to the Christ of Calvary? Do you have a personal relationship with Him? If not, I urge you to invite Him into your heart now!
