The Coming Reward
Daniel 12:3

Today brings an end to our consideration of The Seven Cs of Soul Winning. The final C is the Coming Reward. Let me quote to you from Daniel 12:3, which says, Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.

There is a coming reward for those who turn people to righteousness. The dearest thing to God's heart is winning humanity and bringing them into His family. Nothing is more important to God. He bankrupted heaven and gave His only begotten Son to save humanity.

The Bible teaches us that there will be a reward, my friend: authority in heaven, a place in heaven, honor in heaven. In addition to that, I want to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant." Someday there is going to be a joy and a fullness in heaven, but there are some who will not experience that level of joy.

The story is told that Cyrus, the king of Persia who had defeated Babylon and set the captive Jews at liberty, was walking through his garden one day with a visitor. The visitor was looking at all of the beautiful trees and shrubs and exclaimed how much pleasure the garden was giving him. Cyrus said, "Not nearly the pleasure it gives to me for, you see, I have planted every one of these trees myself."

I think there is going to be something about being in heaven and seeing your fingerprints on people who are there because you shared, because you gave, and because you prayed. I believe there is going to be a greater joy for some because they did more for heaven while on earth than others. There is a coming reward!

For Your Information

     Miracles Yesterday, we looked at John 11 and saw Jesus' perform the miracle of raising Lazarus from the dead. We looked at some of the things that deter us from our faith in the Lord and we called them the death traps. Thomas was dead in his doubting. Martha was dead in her delay. We also mentioned Mary that was dead in her discouragement. That message is on our (or soon will be) website just under the calendar as well as on iTunes.
     Next week we continue the series with a message of Jesus turning the water into wine from John 2. Jesus turned water to wine, calmed a storm, made a blind man see, a crippled man walk again. So why do we sometimes lack the faith to believe that God can calm the storms in our own lives? What would it take for you to believe that the impossible is possible? A miracle? Join us this Sunday at 11 AM as we continue learning about different miracles, and how that applies to us today.

      July 20 - Quarterly Business Meeting at 7:30 PM

      July 31 - Special Speaker - Ron Salomon preaching in the AM Service
