Invest in Your Future, Part 4
“If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.” 1 Cor. 3:12-15
What you do now on earth will impact you for all eternity. Where are you sowing your seeds? Where, what, and who are you investing in? There are many people on their way to hell right now, and as servants of Christ, it is our job to do all we can to reach them. They are our investment. Witnessing to the lost with our lives, as well as our words, is how we will truly build up rewards in heaven.
For many people in your life, you may be the only Jesus they ever see. In other words, our obedience to Christ’s call to reach them may be the only thing that can bring them to Him. What they do once we reach them is up to them. Don’t assume you know how they will react to Christ’s call on their life. Instead, ask yourself if you are remaining obedient to Christ’s call in yours.
Pray “God, please guide my heart. Help me to be a willing vessel for you. I pray your dreams will become my own, and that all I do on this earth will bless your Holy name.”
