TEXT: REVELATION 22:12
â€œAnd, behold, I come quickly;Â and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall beâ€™â€™ (Revelation 22:12).
In todayâ€™s text, Jesus tell us how quickly he will come to reward every man according to his works. He means exactly what he says and you can rely on His statement of fact. He will come again, as promised, to receive believers to heaven. As a Christian, wait for the Lordâ€™s coming to spend eternity with Him in heaven. Accept Him as your Lord and Saviour now by confessing your sins and surrendering your life to Him. In this way, you will be sure of spending eternity with Him. A promised reward often evokes commitment to work. Most people remember their childhood years when parents pledged them gifts for their obedience, good behavior, and diligence to duty or excellent performance at school. The thought usually prompts total compliance with parentsâ€™ desires. Sometimes, parents may fail to fulfill such a promise, to the chagrin of their children. This is not so with the Lord Jesus Christ. If He has given you assurance of eternity with Him, He will be consistent with it, for His promises are â€œyea and amen.â€
Challenge: Some youths donâ€™t live as if Christ is coming back again.
Prayer: Help me to hold on to your promise, Oh Lord.
Quote: A promised reward evokes commitment.
