“The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.” (1 Peter 1:9 NLT)
- You have a reward waiting for you!
- Do you love when you hear that?
- Rewards are awesome!
- And Peter, here clearly says that there is a reward for all those who trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior of their life!
- The reward is “the salvation of your soul”
- Jesus asks the question, “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” (Mark 8:36-37)
- Obviously, Nothing is more valuable than your soul!
- We are talking about eternity!
- Where do you want to spend eternity?
- How do you prepare for eternity?
- You prepare, today!
- Peter tells us in 1 Peter 1:15-16, “But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”
- You can’t be Holy on your own.
- It has to be a work of His Grace!
- But you can begin by abiding in Jesus, and letting His Word abide in you!
- He says, “For without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5 )
- You can only live a set apart, Holy life, with Him and through Him!
- He will give you the ability by His Spirit who lives within you!
- You will be tested and you will go through difficulties but keep your eyes on Jesus, regardless of the opposition, and you will be rewarded!
- Begin preparing and living for your reward, today!
- It will be worth it!
- Have a great weekend!
