Many Who Are First Will Be Last

Even though Everyone Is Going to Heaven , don’t think that there won’t be an accounting in heaven for how we lived our lives on earth.  Indeed, there will be a re-ordering of humanity in heaven.  Many who enjoy prestige, power, and position in this life will be humbled in the next.  Conversely, many who suffer unjustly, live righteously, and show kindness to others will be elevated.

In God’s accounting, He does not care about your fame, success, monetary wealth, or any of the other measures that the world commonly applies to a person’s life.  He is concerned with how much you cared for others, helped the poor, turned the other cheek, and served those around you.

Let’s be as wise as the unjust steward in Jesus’ parable (Luke 16:1-13).  Face the fact that your life on earth, sooner or later, will be taken away from you.  Make sure you prepare for that transition by building up your heavenly account while you still have the chance.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
