Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this:
‘Blessed are the dead,
those who die in the Lord from this moment on!’”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “so they can rest from their hard work, because their deeds will follow them.”
It’s crazy to imagine that what is done here on this Earth for Jesus follows us to Heaven.
The question you should have is what is following me? What will show up?
In the course of our lives, we are involved with so many things. Some are purely for our enjoyment, some we push through and some are for God’s glory.
Your deeds follow you. It’s important.
When you get to Heaven, what will follow you? What will you be able to point to? What of what you’ve done or are doing will bring a smile to Jesus?
Father, help me live this life for You. Help me to understand that my life should bring You glory, honor and praise. Help me to do just that!
