Summary: Is heaven the payday you want.
Which payday are you working for?
A lot of people are working for the wrong pay day anymore. They worry more about making a dollar than they worry about seeking God.(Matt.6:33 But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.) So instead of letting ourselves let down on God we need to remember which PAYDAY is more important! This doesn’t mean we should quit our jobs and just serve God full time. Do serve God Full Time but as well provide for our familys . Just keep GOD FIRST!!! And don’t forget which payday is more important.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
DIFFERENT USE IN HEAVEN
A millionaire Christian is sleeping in his bedroom when an angel comes to him and wakes him up. "It’s time for you to go to heaven", says the angel. "Oh, i’m not ready, what should I bring ?", says the millionaire. "Nothing, just yourself", replies the angel. But the millionaire pulls a large suitcase from under his bed and opens it up. It is full of gold bars. "Can I just bring this along ?", he pleads with the angel. The
angels thinks for a while, gets on his handphone to God and speaks some divine language. Then he turn to the man and says , "OK, but only the suitcase". So the millionaire is taken up to the pearly gates where St.Peter is waiting to welcome him. Looking at the suitcase St.Peter says, "I’m sorry but we don’t allow any earthly possessions here, you’ll have to leave the suitcase behind." The angel whispers the situation into St.Peter’s ears and St.Peter seems to understand. "But what could be so important that God would allow you to take it through ?", muses St.Peter, "Let me take a look". St.Peter opens the suitcase to see all the gold bars inside and immediately falls to the floor rolling around with ecstatic laughter! The millionaire is amazed at St.Peter’s antics. Why is he laughing ? After a while St.Peter is able to stop laughing and
manages to let out a solitary question, "Why do you want to bring PAVEMENT into heaven ?" (Written by Rev Tim Gibson (Source unknown).)(I received this off Sermon Central)
What we count as riches here wont compare to the Pavement up there.
Some of us work all week for a payday. Well our work for god will be rewarded as well.( II Chron. 15:7 Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.) But our reward is greater than we could ever imagine (I Cor.2: 9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.) But we will read the scripture and remember John is describing something he seen the best way he could…
