“But it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
As I look at this verse in the Bible, one thing is for sure, I am going to see what God has prepared for me. One question: are you going to see what God has prepared for you? Many times while speaking in churches and traveling in different states, I have heard many things said from people who claim to be Christian.
Here are some:
• Well, I am just as good as them that go down there to that church, all they have is hypocrites.
• At least I don’t do the things they do, and I don’t even claim to be a Christian.
• We have people in our church that don’t even tithe, why they would not give to God even if they thought he was coming the next day? I do the best I can and with very little help.
• We used to have a big congregation, but now it has fallen off to nothing, but I do all I can. I don’t go on visitation because I am afraid I will get a door slammed in my face. I don’t tell anyone about Jesus Christ because they don’t want to hear about that kind of stuff.
I could go on and on about what people who claim to be Christian have told me. Christians, if you are having problems with what other Christians are doing, you need to get your eyes off them and get them back on Jesus Christ because people will fail you.
Only Jesus lived a perfect life on earth, and we have to try to walk and talk like he did.
We do not have to answer for the sins of other people, only give account of ourselves, so let’s be ready at all times, for we do not know what hour Jesus will come for us.
Look at 1 Corinthians 15:51-52: “Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed.”
We must ask ourselves, are we ready? If we are not, it will be too late, blink your eye and see how long it will take for us to be standing at the judgment seat of Christ.
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ: that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
You know, when the Bible said “all” it means you and me.
