《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” (2Co 5:9-10)
Meditation one: Since Christ is your Savior and your Lord, should you please Him with your work, your saying, your deeds, and your thoughts? In Faith is our salvation, but after the salvation, in action is our reward from the Lord. We cannot say that Jesus is the Lord, but our hearts are making the Lord to be our servant, to command Him to do things for ourselves, and to use Him to please our own joy.
Meditation two: How will God value you when Christ returns? It is not how your work appears to be, nor how your service looks like; it is from your hidden side – the side that people do not know, but God will look at and value you. At that time we will expose our ministries in front of the Christ. That is not about your salvation, but about what you do while you believe in Him. At that time each will receive their praise from God (1 Co 4:5).
Prayer: Lord Jesus, because of Your encouragement in love, I am willing to respond to Your love with “doing everything to please the Lord.” I don’t care about peace or danger, blessings and joys, life or death. I only care when You come back, I can confess that I am a person who pleases You. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
