Warning: “The things that most people think are important are worthless as far as God is concerned.” How will your life measure up when you are called to give account, as WE ALL WILL? Does the total solar eclipse over America on 8/21 cause you to ponder your significance?

Posted: August 20, 2017 in Behavior that shows holiness and consecration to Jesus, Hell and Heaven are both real places, rivers of living water: salvation

God’s holy words of warning to us through Jesus, the gate to heaven: “The things that most people think are important are WORTHLESS as far as God is concerned. You are always making yourselves look good, but God sees what is in your heart.” (Luke 16:15)

So the question should be, what would God value then since our soul’s eternal home is in the balance? God wants you to honor him by loving him with all your heart and mind and soul and strength…to serve others well….to humbly fear the power of God and His majesty…to accept freely his son, Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross 2,000 years ago as the gateway of the narrow path to everlasting path with God the Father, Jesus and their angels, to not grieve Holy Spirit with unrighteous, worldly living, to study the Bible, God’s final word that will stand for all time to show yourself approved. Choose to love at all times. Be patient, long-suffering, meek, gentle, helpful to all regardless of what they can do for you. Do not long for what others have (covet). Be a friend and daughter/son of God. Generously give of your time for dialogue in prayer. Listen for His small still voice telling you the way to go. He is always speaking but sin limits our human ability to hear.

Later in the same Bible chapter, Jesus tells of the reality of hell and the rich man who goes  there. He thought nothing of holiness and God during his selfish, indulgent life. He wore expensive clothes and ate the best food, as modern people seek after. God spends your whole life beckoning to your heart to surrender to Jesus, but if your heart is so hardened by worldly “now” concerns, you will die unrepentant in your sins. “I’m suffering terribly in this fire” (excerpts from Luke 19  ) he reports for us as a warning. There is no water here. WAKE UP PEOPLE. TIME IS SHORT TO MAKE A DECISION OF FAITH THAT WILL HAVE ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES.
