Your Eternal Reward- Jafar


Church Family,

Tonight is prayer meeting. At 7pm the youth are going to be going out to pass out flyers for VBS. If you wish to go they would love to have you join them. Speaking of VBS please continue to pray or begin to pray for it. Pray for the parents that are bringing the children, for the children that they will clearly hear and understand the gospel, for the Word of God that it will be freely taught, that the lost might be saved and that the saved will grow closer to God, and lastly, pray for the workers beginning with Gayle and all the other servants.

My reading today was Matthew 6.

Matthew 6:1 Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.

In the movie Aladdin, Jafar tricks Aladdin and then offers to give Aladdin his eternal reward. Accoring to Matthew you can only collect one reward for your actions. Think about that. The rest of the chapter discusses how if we receive our reward here on earth then we will not receive it from the father. Imagine living a life that everyone envy’s and compliments, but your reward is temporary.

Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and ruste destroy and where thieves break in and steal,20but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

What God is offering as a reward is far greater than what the earth can offer. Live for Jesus.

Short note, this goes completely against prosperity preaching. Those men/women trying to get you to receive a reward here on earth are liars and thieves. They misuse the name of Lord and will spend an eternity separated from Him. They’ve already received all of their rewards here on earth.

Reminder:

  1. Prayer meeting tonight.
  2. Father’s Day this Sunday!
  3. VBS Shipwrecked Sunday thru Thursday starting at 6pm and lasting till 8:30

Love, Serve, Go
