Our rewards we receive are for our serving in faithfulness, not to receive salvation, which cannot be earned by works. Eph 2:8-10



Trials will come, but the reward is great. We may waiver, but don’t lose heart. We have a great advocate in Jesus. He will walk through it all with us. Take courage today, if you are struggling. God Bless.

Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.
Hebrews 10:35‭-‬36 NASB

Lord, may our hearts humbly bow before you, in persistent prayer. May we be alert, to the needs of others, so we might lift them up. Reveal yourself to us, through answered prayer, even though it may not be, what we wanted the outcome to be. May we always remember, that you care about us and love hearing our petitions.

Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving;

Lord, this life is a marathon! Help us to run the race with endurance. Let us not lose site, of the hope we have, and the crown of life we will receive. Not because of what we have done, but what Jesus has done on the cross, and resurrection, and through his Holy Spirit, working in us. Thank you, Lord.

Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
James 1:12 NASB

Christian = suffering, but with great joy(JAS 1:2). The race is on.  We are in a life long race of endurance, embracing the trials, enduring the sufferings, rejoicing in the victories.  All the while holding tight to the finish line where we will receive the crown.  The reward of a faithful servant, the perfect life where everything will be changed, including ourselves.  Thank you Jesus.  Bring on what comes my way today.  Whether in good or bad times, May I say, blessed be the Name of the Lord. Amen!!

And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.
Mark 8:34‭-‬35 NASB
