Revelation 22:12 Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.
If this isn’t an indication of works, I don’t know what is. Jesus also said we are to store up treasures in Heaven that where your treasure is there ye heart will be also. If we know this reward or treasure is in Heaven our hearts will be set on what’s eternal. Don’t get too caught up in the things of this world. He says “look, I am coming soon” and with the world the way it Is, we can even be coming sooner. Our number could be up today. We take nothing with us. We take nothing with us. We… take nothing with us.
But there’s treasure waiting for us. God gives to each opportunities to cash in on this promise. We can’t work our way into Heaven it’s a gift but we can work for these rewards. Just try to imagine these rewards he has for those who are mindful of this verse. The bible says no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived the things that God has prepared for those that love him. If you truly love him, you’re gonna be doing the things that store treasures up in heaven… It’s just part of the package.
Lord be with you guys… go treasure hunting weekend!
