Some will!

RE Verse reading–Matthew 25:31-46 (day three)  “Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (vs 34)  When the Lord prepared the kingdom (before time began),  He had in mind a glorious reward and appropriate end for people who had loved His son.  Sad history has shown that many will not pass this test.  The good news is that some will!  Some people (may it please God for us to be included) will devote themselves to the work of God in the world.  Some will (by His grace) extend their hands to support the missionary/ministry/benevolent work of the church.  Many will refuse to endorse.  Goats.  Some will support with their time, talent and treasure.  Sheep.  It will indicate a right relationship with the Lord, Himself.  How great is God to rescue us and then reward us for being rescued.

  1. I have been praying to be shown how to truly meditate on the Word while submitting myself to and trusting the Spirit to reveal the Truth to me…. specifically in the parables…. the past few weeks. What a rich lesson these parables are.

    What I have at this point is a long list of questions. My main ones are what if He is talking about spiritual realities and not (just) physical ones? What if it is true that “If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.” What if we are to wash one another’s feet (care about the sin/consequences of sin on our brothers and do something about it… not reject them for it). What if it is possible to not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked…. or care that others are? What if He actually meant it when He told us to “Go and make disciples of all the nations”…. then whose fault is it that some will not choose Him?

    Even without answers, I have enough to be convicted about things…. that is for sure.

    Father, we submit ourselves and our will to your Word and Your Will. Please show us how to do this. Amen.
