A man once told me, as I spoke of God to him, he said, “its not so much what you can get from God that matters (such as Heaven and a new body/paradise etc.) as much as what you bring to God of yourself that makes the grade.”
A light went off when he said those words to me. What do I have to bring to the Kingdom of God? Can I be trusted to do God’s work? Will I hurt His children? Will I deceive them with lies?
I share my heart with you. I hope to God I am not mistaken.
Some Christians are expecting to be raptured before any great tribulation problems occur. My question is this…if they/we are not raptured along with the young children will we be so pissed we curse God? Or will we seek God even more fervently and sustain Hope for whatever His will is for us. That is the wisdom. “Thy will be done in my life”. This isn’t easy to pray sometimes.

No, we are not saved by the right works & works alone. Granted you could say everything is works even prayer and a relationship with God are works. But by works I mean “good deeds”. It is our Faith and our condition of the heart toward God & man that God looks upon in us. Our status in the realm of The Spirit after death however, depends on the works we have carried out while vulnerable, naive, weak, and human. Courageous righteous acts carry alot of weight like giving your life so another can live. Do we not reap what we sow?
