Where are you now versus where you should be in furthering the Kingdom of GOD? Consider this, if you were to pass away today and you were standing before Jesus, would you look back and say “I could have done more for the Kingdom?”
In Matthew chapter 25, Jesus spoke:
22 “Then the one who had been entrusted with two thousand gold coins came in and said, ‘See, My Master, I have doubled what You have entrusted to me.’
23 “Commending his servant, the Master replied, ‘You have done well, and proven yourself to be My loyal and trustworthy servant. Because you were faithful to manage a small sum, now I will put you in charge of much, much more. You will experience the delight of your master, who will say to you, “Come celebrate with Me!”’
Add to what Jesus said about judging the multitudes immediately after He shared the above Truth and then expressed the following:
31 “When the Son of Man appears in His majestic glory, with all His angels by His side, He will take His seat on His throne of splendor, 32 and all the nations will be gathered together before Him. And like a shepherd who separates the sheep from the goats, He will separate all the people. 33 The ‘sheep’ He will put on His right side and the ‘goats’ on His left. 34 Then the King will turn to those on his right and say, ‘You have a special place in My Father’s Heart. Come and experience the full inheritance of the Kingdom realm that has been destined for you from before the foundation of the world! 35 For when you saw Me hungry, you fed Me. When you found Me thirsty, you gave Me something to drink. When I had no place to stay, you invited Me in, 36 and when I was poorly clothed, you covered Me. When I was sick, you tenderly cared for Me, and when I was in prison you visited Me.’
37 “Then the Godly will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty and give You food and something to drink? 38 When did we see You with no place to stay and invite You in? When did we see You poorly clothed and cover You? 39 When did we see You sick and tenderly care for You, or in prison and visit You?’
40 “And the King will answer them, ‘Don’t you know? When you cared for one of the least important of these MY little ones, MY true brothers and sisters, you demonstrated Love for me.’
Would you rather know now that you can do more for the Kingdom or find out when you stand before Jesus in His majestic glory, with all His angels by His side, and He reviews your life’s work and assesses your fruitfulness? Is it time to reassess your priorities?
Don’t you realize that when you make FATHER’S priorities your priorities, that HE makes sure you are blessed in everything you pursue? HE will give you the desires of your pure heart. I can attest to that reality in my own life. FATHER has a generous Heart and exceeds expectations.
FATHER does not reward selfishness, lukewarmness, or a life of compromise. If your agenda is not in line with HIS Divine Intent, don’t expect a positive response when you go before Jesus. Now is the time to do an assessment and correct your priorities.
It’s not how you start the race, it is how you finish it that counts. If you do right, it will go well with you.
Each month, my wife and I invest in what is important to FATHER and our investment goes toward establishing HIS Kingdom on earth. This is exactly why we were led to help impoverished kids and provide them hope and an expectation of a better life. This applies to their parent (or parents) as well.
