There is one thing that is inevitable. Death. We all think about the after life and where we will go when we die, but how can we be sure of where we will spend eternity?
When God returns, he needs to recognise us as his faithful children who love him and put him at the top of our list. It’s important that he recognises us through us giving our lives in dedication to him and the spiritual relationship he has with us. Ask yourself if you are living your life, dedicating it to him? The truth is, we need to be at that place where God is seen as our everything and where we fully depend and trust him in our daily lives. This is how we get to know god as our literal dad or father and that’s how we have to see him for him to know us and to know him. If we ask God to reveal more of himself and spend ore time in his word and in prayer, we will begin to see the start of a personal relationship with the almighty God.
Here is a passage from Matthew 7:22 that explains “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you, depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.” Here, the bible is speaking about the dangers of being “falsely” close to god and how important it is to know God on a personal level. You might go to church every Sunday or have a prophetic gift, but that isn’t what’s going to get you to heaven. What will get you to heaven is your belief, your relationship with him and how we live our daily lives. We are not perfect, but God knows ours hearts, and how much we desire to make an effort for him and want to change. To help us, the bible says, “ask and it shall be given to you,” this Is because God knows that without him, we are lacking and “fall short of the glory of God” so he has given us the opportunity to ask for what we need from him, if we have the willingness to do so. All we need, including our salvation, is in God and we need to constantly be making an effort for him, as he centred his whole life around teaching us and dying to save us from hell. God also knew that in our asking, we would develop a child to parent-like contact, which is what we must aspire to have.
We need to understand the real sacrifice he made for us and how much he loved us to do this. We also need to stop treating God as just being there and welcome him as a father into daily life. Once we grasp this idea, we will then begin to give back to him what he gave to us, and in the process, get ourselves to heaven as we grow, change and mature in his character. So, asking all these questions if you think you are not going in the direction of heaven, now is the time to begin this special contact with God while you still have the chance…
