REWARDS

Everyone likes to be rewarded for the things they do, the effort they put out, the time and money they spend or invest in people or things, and it does not matter where either; it could be at home, work, school or church, we want to feel appreciated or special, or that it was worth it. However most people fail to realize that what or who you invest most of your time, money, and effort in, is who or what you will be rewarded with; everyone has a reward coming to them whether it’s good or bad it all depends on the person. Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sowed that shall he also reap…(Galatians 6:7-10); it’s simple if you give kindness your reward is kindness, if you dish out hate your reward is hate.

There is a reward for righteousness, and righteous people  (Psalm 58:11; Proverbs 11 :18), and for the unrighteous ( 2 Peter 2:13; Proverbs 24:20). Our Heavenly Father loves diligence and faithfulness, that’s why “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). It is written that we should seek God first and His righteousness, and He will take care of our needs (Matthew 6:33), that’s what I call a great investment, because your reward is great; you have a great reward when you do good, when you are righteous (Psalm 19:9-11; Matthew 5:12; Luke 6:23&35).

What kind of reward are you looking for? The ones you put on a shelf that has only momentary and temporary rewards or the one that gives you salvation and lasts for ever. As Christians the only reward we should be looking for  is well done thou good and faithful servant, and like Paul we can boldly state, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith, henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge, shall give me on that day (2 Timothy 4:7-8). Listen friends time, money or anything invested in the God of the universe yields great rewards(Matthew 10:40-42).

OUR BIGGEST ENEMY

Devil, I hear you knocking, but you can’t come in.

I must tell you this folks, the devil does not take vacations, but we all wish he did. Sometimes we all could use a break, but we must be sober, and vigilant, because the devil is like a roaring lion, walking around, looking for people to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

Well, if you’ve never been under attack by the devil then you know whose you are? and who your father is ( John 8:44). But, as Christians we don’t worry about the devil, because, “Greater is He, who is in us, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). You must understand, and realize that our faith is the God, who created this universe, which means we are serving the true, and living God; who sent His only begotten Son to save us (John 3:16, John 6:40, Philippians 1:9-11).

Let me break it down to you my friends. Without Faith, it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). The gift of faith is one of three power gifts, and every believer gets a measure of it (Romans 12:3). Faith my friends, cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17).

Folks, you must understand that your prayers, will not be answered if you don’t believe, or know the only God, who answers prayers.  And, His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, is the only way to God (John 14:6, John 8:32). As I said before, without  faith it is impossible to please God. Now let me explain, what faith is. ”It is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen …it’s through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God (Hebrew 11:1-3). Stay with me, remember, faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Listen to this, “For the word of God is quick, powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul, and spirit, and of the joints, and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest, who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:12-16).

As a child of God, it’s a privilege to know that, God never slumbers nor sleeps (Psalm 121:3-4), so faith in God allows us to go to sleep (Psalms 3:5-8).

Would you like to have this same, peace of mind, trust, and confidence in God, then go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. You will die in your sins, if you don’t believe in Jesus (John 8:24). It will be the best decision you ever make.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me, to get His message out to His people. I pray that they will submit to His will, and ways, as I have in Jesus Name, amen.
