‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth—Matthew 25:29,30
For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.—Luke 19:26
Every person will give an account to God. The question will be what did you do with Jesus? For those who have accepted the Gospel more will be given them. To those who reject the Gospel even the life they have will be lost for eternity. In other words there is a heaven to gain and there is a hell to shun.
This is the good news, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself. When Jesus lifted up his voice on the cross and cried out ‘it is finished’ the veil in the Jewish temple was ripped from top to bottom. This indicated that mankind now has free access to God through Jesus! Mankind has been completely and totally forgiven, Because of Jesus shed blood, God’s Spirit would be poured out upon all flesh. Jesus said, ‘if I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me!’
Today there is a Gospel witness on every continent. Millions in our day are being swept into the kingdom of God! It’s harvest time and Jesus is coming soon! The talents and pounds represent the gospel that has been entrusted to us today! If we share with others what God has given to us more will be given to us both in this life and in the life to come. Jesus said, ‘freely you have received freely give.’ Pray that God would open up doors for you to share the greatest love story ever told. Someone is waiting to hear your story!
