“If your heart takes more pleasure in reading novels, or watching TV, or going to the movies, or talking to friends, rather than just sitting alone with God and embracing Him, sharing His cares and His burdens, weeping and rejoicing with Him, then how are you going to handle forever and ever in His presence…? You’d be bored to tears in heaven, if you’re not ecstatic about God now!” -Keith Green
A very, very dear friend of mine put that quote as her status update on Facebook yesterday. Since then, I haven’t been able to get it off my mind or my heart.
Will I be bored in heaven?
I don’t want to be! I long for the day when I will be walking the streets of gold hand in hand with my Jesus, singing songs of praise to His holy name, and thanking Him over and over for what He did for me.
But do I really SHOW that here on earth?
Am I taking the time to teach my children the importance of truly living a life for Jesus? Where reading my Bible, singing songs of praise, and serving Jesus in whatever way possible takes up more time than video games, movies, books, or tv?
I must commit to put Christ first. HE is worth it. Jesus is all I need.
Matthew 6:24 – No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
