What Will Be My Reward?

Scripture: Revelations 22: 12 “Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.

Observation: What will I have accomplished when my time to meet Jesus comes? Will I still be sitting on the couch thinking of all the things I should be doing or or will I be doing them? Will my life represent service, obedience, praise and glory to God or a self centered, do what I want to do life? God is not silent in my life, but at times I chose not to listen.

Application: God has made it clear what He wants of me with small groups, lay counseling and using my gift of food management for the church. To use my testimony of depression and how God raised me up from that.

Prayer: Dear Lord I deserve no reward, but You deserve my all. May I present this life as a living sacrifice to you and my reward to know that I pleased You.

I want to Overcome

Scripture: Revelations 21: [7] He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Observation: Overcoming is resisting the temptations of this world and sin. Honoring God with my life is what I want to do. I want God to know as His loving son, that I will live this life and my life to come to glorify Him.

Application: Keep God in my thoughts always. Before I do or say anything think if it honors God or not. If I catch myself having a bad attitude or not having a grateful heart that I would repent and change in a way that honors God.

Prayer: Dear Lord show me how to live a life that will glorify you and guide others to you. Help me live a life knowing you.

I’m in the Book

Scripture: Revelations 20: [12] And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.

Observation: Because of Jesus and my believe in Him my name is written in the book of life, but how will I be judged on what I have done. God saved me for a purpose, will I fulfill my purpose or let many things go undone. I’m coming to the end of this life here, will God read the book and look at me with a smile or disappointment.

Application: It’s not too late to honor God and fulfill the reason He put me here. I need to make His will priority in my life and strive to see Him smile and be proud of me when It’s time to go home.

Prayer: Dear Lord thank you for saving me from Hell. Show me the work You desire of me and give me the strength, wisdom and discipline to do it.
