Come, you blessed!
Matthew 25:34 (NKJV)
Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
In Matthew 25, Jesus warns of a day when He will return to judge the nations. He will seperate people as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. He will say to the “sheep”, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: To the others He will say, “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: (Matthew 25:41NKJV)
The former group is saved by grace through faith, Out of their salvation flow their good works, they feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick, care for the imprisoned, and minister to “the least of these”. We aren’t saved on the basis of those deeds, for no amount of good works can save us. We engage in them because we have been saved, and our kindness is evidence of the grace of Christ in our hearts.
Our days should be filled with blessing those around us, living in expectation of the day when we hear the words of Christ calling us to come in and inherit the Kingdom that has been prepared for us.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
