Now that we have been challenged to make sure we are approved, today’s thought is: your standing before God is the most important issue of life.
Have you noticed the way our currency has changed in the last few years? Our paper bills have gone through a transformation. Why? This is an effort by the Treasury Department to stop counterfeiters. They want our money to be impossible to duplicate.
We all go to great extremes not only to make sure our money is genuine but to protect our investments. We spend obscene amounts to insure our homes, businesses and cars. We spend thousands annually in health insurance as well. Why? We are protecting our investments.
While we want to be sure all our investments are secure, most of us give little thought to making sure our greatest investment, our eternal future, is secure. Consider this, the only “thing” you can take to heaven are the souls of others you have reached with the Gospel. Now that is an eternal investment
So it is important for all of us, no matter how long we have been in the church to continually examine and test our lives. I would like to ask you a sobering question: Who will be in heaven as a result of your life and influence?
