WE CAN NOT AFFORD NOT TO MAKE IT...

DON'T FORGET HEAVEN

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

Multi- millionaire Rockefeller died while looking at his STAMP COLLECTION

worth many millions... What did Rockefeller leave when he died...

HE LEFT EVERYTHING... HE WHO DIES WITH THE MOST TOYS IS STILL DEAD...

I. GOD IS A REWARDER... SIN IS A MOCKER AND DESTROYER...

A. WAGE:

A FIXED PAYMENT, Return, recompense

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus

Christ our Lord.

B. YOU BECOME A PRODUCT OF YOUR DAILY CHOICES...

C. You are not my your words, actions, deeds...

Galatians 6:3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

[4] But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and

not in another.

[5] For every man shall bear his own burden.

[6] Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

[7] Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

[8] For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit

shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

D. IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT YOU ARE GETTING CHANGE WHAT YOU ARE GIVING...

II. GOD IS NOT SLACK... NO ACT OF ACT KINDNESS IS UNNOTICED BY OUR

HEAVENLY FATHER...

A. SLACK:

Loose, lazy, idle, careless, lax...

Not taut; inactive; sluggish

Negligent or remiss

Neither ebbing or flowing

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness;

but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come

to repentance.

B. Man may be slack, God may at times appear a little slack, but God will set the records

straight...

III. THERE IS A PAY DAY AT THE END OF THE ROAD...

GOD IS FAITHFUL AND JUST...

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God

must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

A. PAYDAY:

The time or day set on which that was earned is paid

B. REWARD:

A return or recompense for service or merit

Requital for good or evil; retribution

Sum offered for the return of property

C. REQUITAL:

Make a return for...

Reward or avenge

To pay back

IV. HEAVEN IS NOT REACHED BY ACCIDENT...

WE MUST SET ARE SIGHTS ON THE GOAL

A. God demands first place...

B. Oh, I would die for Jesus... I just can't seem to live for Him...

MANY WANT TO DIE RIGHT WITHOUT LIVING RIGHT...

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these

things shall be added unto you.

C. TODAY WE THINK BACKSLIDDING IS FUNNY?

Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking

back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

V. SIN COST...

SIN WILL TAKE YOU FARTHER THAN YOU YOU PLLANNED ON GOING...

SIN WILL KEEP YOU LONGER THAN YOU PLANNED ON PAYING...

SIN COST MORE THAN YOU WANT TO PAY...

Hebrews 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression
