This is the last BLOG IN 2019. It is written to encourage you to invest in ur future, starting now. God alludes to Rewards, Treasures, Heavenly Praise for individuals and Gold, etc. in the New Testaments. There are commands, allusions and encouragement to purse theses ends to ur benefit. This doesn’t mean u don’t put effort and thought in the challenges of today’s but are always aware of rewards in Heaven.
In my own life, I have had periods where my focus and prime efforts were not focused God and His wishes. My efforts were placed in my perceived best interest during these times, that was worldly praise.
Do not love the world, nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, because all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever. 1 John 2:15-17
Never lose sight of the final place we end up in and that is Heaven. This is where we will be rewarded these rewards.
If you have questions or concerns on this thinking in the blog, please let me know. I pray your walk goes better this year than last and starting today, go out and store some treasure in Heaven.
Your friend in Christ.
This is the 49th blog. Just before Christmas and the end of the year. I pray the blogs this year made you grow closer to God and do some spiritual thinking.
I have wrestled with this blog for months but at last got something down on paper. A person’s help on the concept of HOPE as the definer of your joy was the break through thought for me. If hope and the way God sees it and uses it, you are not knowledgeable about it, stop now and study it.
Any other thoughts you might have on this Blog’s thinking would be appreciated. Just email them to me.
Read the paper before Christmas eve. Only 4 pages and reads fast.
Connie and my thoughts are with you during this season.
