Who Desires God’s Reward?

But get up and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this reason, to designate you in advance as a servant and witness to the things you have seen and to the things in which I will appear to you.” Acts 26:16 NET https://bible.com/bible/107/act.26.16.NET


I want to be God’s servant and witness that I might receive God’s reward on the day He brings me to Himself to weigh the life I lived before Him. All of us will be weighed and measured and most will be found wanting because they did little to nothing for the glory of God while they lived on this earth. The greatest sin we consistently perform is ignoring and doing God’s will on earth. The servant of God serves people so that people will, in turn, be receptive to the word of God. The witness of God then shares the word of God, Who is Jesus the Savior, so that all people might be restored to God. God in Jesus came to earth to reconcile the world to Himself. He has left His church on the earth to complete His mission, the salvation and sanctification of all people in partnership with Him in the Holy Spirit. Jesus continues to appear to us as we continue to seek Him through the Scriptures. His appearance is for our increased understanding of serving Him and sharing Him with others, the ultimate purpose of His appearing to us in the Scriptures. Our goal is to be the building of His kingdom upon the earth as it is in heaven. The seeking and saving of the lost until every knee bows and every tongue confesses that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father. We are not to wring our hands of the evil we see, expecting the world to become increasingly hostile to God. We are to set our hands upon the plow and sow the word of God, expecting a harvest of righteousness, for it is to His glory that we bear much fruit proving ourselves to be His disciple. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Who will seek the Lord earnestly to serve and witness for Him diligently? I long to be that man.
