God’s Word: Mark 13:21-37
God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)
If you have read My Word you know this world is not designed to last forever. The next one I am preparing will knock your socks off. I explained all this in My Word so you would be informed about what to expect. My challenge to you is to live today as though you were expecting My Grand Finale at any moment. As I look over the world that is not what is happening. People are stockpiling “stuff” as though they were going to live forever right there on planet earth. Treasures on earth have no lasting value—they can be gone in a moment. Only treasures stockpiled in heaven are enduring.
How does one stockpile treasures in heaven? My dearest treasurers are you people. Who will be in heaven because of how you treated them on earth? The foundation of heaven is laid on earth today. It is laid brick upon brick as you live out My Word before your people today. Who are your people? Those you rub shoulders with each day. Your family, your friends, your work associates, those you do business with. Do they see the love and kindness of Jesus alive in you? Let the beauty of Jesus shine forth from your life.
This world is not your home—you are just passing through. Make every effort to have blessed the lives of those your life has touched—no matter how brief the encounter. At every opportunity, share the reason for your radiance and your hope of heaven for eternity. You are where you are because of the choices you have made. Now shine for Me wherever that is. So live that whenever I choose to send Jesus back to earth to redeem My people—you will be ready and welcome My Grand Finale.
God’s Question: Who will be in heaven because you loved them?
God’s Promise: Sky & earth will wear out; My Words won’t wear out.
My Prayer to God:
I Praise You for Your love that is preparing heaven for us.
I am Sorry I get so comfortable living to bless myself.
Thank You for Your blessed Word that promises heaven.
Please help me love others, all others, on Your behalf.
