How Did We Do This Life?

Sunday happy full of blessings

Good Morning**Have A Wonderful Day**Final Exam

There Is A Final Exam; When we finish our Schooling whether high school or college people are so glad no more final exams to get ready for. Sorry to say but our final exam is coming. The questions will be looked at when we are before our Lord. Some of the things he will be looking at are the following:
⦁ How many doors were opened for sharing the gospel? How many of them opened doors was the gospel shared?
⦁ How much truth from my word did my child know? How often did my child read my book?
⦁ Did my child live for me? Or did my child live for the world?
⦁ Did my child love the brethren? Did my child forgive the brethren as I forgave them?

 

Keep in mind He already knows all the answers. Did My Child Love Me.
So you understand we are actually preparing for the final exam right now. On judgment day, no excuses or arguments can stand, nor will we be able to argue with our Heavenly Father. Trying to blame others, give awful excuses, selfish reasons will be permitted in God’s holy presence. All we will do is stand in his presence and he will do all the talking and hand out the rewards (well if we are due any). Keep in mind our crowns we will then give to Jesus can you imagine the shame when others give him crowns and those of us have none to give????? Wow that will not be way to start eternity in Heaven. Keep in mind there we will have different body, and mind, a perfect one we will think different there than here. Here we can think “well at least I got there and I don’t care about rewards, and crowns” we aren’t standing there face to face. However when we are standing before him do you really think any of us will truly feel that way?
Throughout life, our heavenly Father blesses us in so many ways. He gives us life. He gives us the free gift of salvation. Many of us he gave children and grandchildren. Great church homes, and wonderful homes, food to eat, and brethren to fellowship with. All he gives us and the gift of salvation he really owes us nothing. We should want to serve him every chance we get. Not look at it as a burden or a chore like taking our the garbage or doing laundry. Don’t waste any opportunity to be a witness. Live each day for our Lord Jesus Christ. We are here to Glorify him, to Love him with our whole heart. We need to start doing JUST THAT.

Matthew 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Matthew 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Matthew 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Matthew 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

 

Matthew 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
Matthew 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
Matthew 25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Matthew 25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Matthew 25:37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
Matthew 25:38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Matthew 25:39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
Matthew 25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

1Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
1Corinthians 3:8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
1Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Psalm 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Psalm 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
Psalm 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Colossians 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

 

BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES
Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
⦁ Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves;
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
Fearing neither clouds nor winter’s chilling breeze;
By and by the harvest, and the labor ended,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Though the loss sustained our spirit often grieves;
When our weeping’s over, He will bid us welcome,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

 

I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY
I love to tell the story of unseen things above,
Of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true;
It satisfies my longings as nothing else can do.
I love to tell the story, ’twill be my theme in glory,
To tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.
I love to tell the story; more wonderful it seems
Than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams.
I love to tell the story, it did so much for me;
And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.
I love to tell the story; ’tis pleasant to repeat
What seems, each time I tell it, more wonderfully sweet.
I love to tell the story, for some have never heard
The message of salvation from God’s own holy Word.
I love to tell the story, for those who know it best
Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.
And when, in scenes of glory, I sing the new, new song,
’Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.

 

HAVE I DONE MY BEST FOR JESUS
I wonder have I done my best for Jesus,
Who died upon the cruel tree?
To think of His great sacrifice at Calvary!
I know my Lord expects the best from me.

How many are the lost that I have lifted?
How many are the chained I’ve helped to free?
I wonder, have I done my best for Jesus,
When He has done so much for me?
The hours that I have wasted are so many
The hours I’ve spent for Christ so few;
Because of all my lack of love for Jesus,
I wonder if His heart is breaking too.
I wonder have I cared enough for others,
Or have I let them die alone?
I might have helped a wand’rer to the Saviour,
The seed of precious Life I might have sown.
No longer will I stay within the valley
I’ll climb to mountain heights above;
The world is dying now for want of someone
To tell them of the Saviour’s matchless love.

 

Love and Prayers
