Only One Thing Counts
No one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.
~ 1 CORINTHIANS 2: 9
Think about the day Christ comes. There you are in the great circle of the redeemed. . . . Though you are one of a throng, it’s as if you and Jesus are all alone. . . .
I’m speculating now, but I wonder if Christ might say these words to you: “I’m so proud that you let me use you. Because of you, others are here today. Would you like to meet them?” . . . At that point Jesus might turn to the crowd and invite them. . . . One by one, they begin to step out and walk forward.
The first is your neighbor, a crusty old sort who lived next door. To be frank, you didn’t expect to see him. “You never knew I was watching,” he explains, “but I was. And because of you, I am here.” . . .
It’s not long before you and your Savior are encircled by the delightful collection of souls you’ve touched. Some you know, most you don’t, but for each you feel the same. . . . You feel what Paul felt . . . “I’m so proud of your faith” (see 1 Thess. 2:19).
(c)Max Lucado ~ When Christ Comes
Will people step forward in heaven
because of your faith?
What can you do to share Christ with others?
