40 As the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather from his kingdom everything that causes sin as well as all lawbreakers. 42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. The one who has ears had better listen!
Matthew 13:40-43 NET
The righteous will shine! But before that, there is a collection and separation. Everything that causes sin will be burned up.
The Kingdom of God will be pure and holy. No evil thing will be found there.
There is nothing you can do to be righteous and holy in your own right. But you do have to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Accepting Him also means that you come under His rule. This means you follow His ways, what the Bible says.
It is the best way to live! Knowing that you belong to Jesus, that one day you will experience eternal life as you see Him face to face is something to look forward to.
This world is passing away. One day soon, those who belong to Jesus won’t recognize it. It will be made new!
Belong to Jesus!
Are you pressing into the things of God more and more?
There are so many people who are living off of old glories! But God shows Himself everyday! He wants to bless you. He wants to have an intimate relationship with you.
You are missing out if you aren’t pressing into Him each day! You are missing it! Each day is a day to grow in Him!
Seek Him and you will not be disappointed.
Lord, I want more of You. Help me to refuse what the world has to offer and instead seek You more and more.
