Only What’s Done For Christ Will Last
So many who reject Christ do so far worldly fame and money. No matter how big you are today, there will come a time when the crowd moves on to someone new. No matter how rich you are, you will soon become tired of the new toys the world has to offer.
Only the works for Christ will last through eternity. I was thinking of a Missionary who was killed by the people he was trying to reach. His heroic wife stayed on the Mission field and because of her, the people who killed her husband became Christians.
She has now passed away from old age. What a marvelous reunion it must have been when she saw her husband again! To be able to talk about the work he started and through Christ, how she brought the work to a satisfactory conclusion. Their work will last through eternity.
We often grow weary. Many people work hard in the background of life for God. God sees their work. There will come a day when their work will be rewarded openly in Heaven. Let us seek to please our Heavenly Father in all that we do, not for rewards, but because we love Him.
