Praise and Pray Day 19

Revelation 22:12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give each person according to what they have done.

Jesus is on his way back soon! Are we ready? His word didn’t say the day or time when he would come but it simply says soon. If the day or time had been provided we would get comfortable thinking we have time to get ready. Since his word says soon, we know that we don’t have time at all.

When Jesus return he will bring rewards with him. This is only for believers that served the Lord faithfully. We must understand that by following Jesus Christ we will be persecuted for his name sake because the world hates him. We must build our treasures up in heaven and not on earth so that we may receive our reward when Jesus returns. We all have spiritual gifts from God and we must use these to glorify God only. The reward Jesus has for us is worth serving him wholeheartedly everyday while here on earth. We will be rewarded individually and not collectively for the work we have done for the Lord. We should give praises to the Lord, just for him not holding us accountable for what others aren’t or simply won’t do.  Above all, the work we do for Christ will not go in vain because has promised us a reward.  

We must make a choice today to serve Jesus Christ. Jesus is waiting to hear from us and welcome us with open arms. He doesn’t want to be separated from us but wants us near him. Once we accept him we become one of God’s children. Jesus offers us eternal life and not death. Follow Jesus starting today!
