Aside

Tonight during my son’s basketball game, a special recognition will be given to honor the gentleman who has diligently served as the basketball team’s scorekeeper and/or statistics keeper for forty years. His faithfulness in serving has led him to this night…a night that I’m sure he is looking forward to and a night that I’m sure he won’t soon forget. Anyone who has ever been honored or recognized for something they have done knows the feeling of excitement, joy, and contentment that it brings.  For those who know Christ, there is an honor and recognition coming that will be far greater than any we could ever receive on this earth…it is the day when we stand before God and are recognized as His own.  We will be known as the children of God and every honor that should be bestowed upon the King of king’s children will be given to us! Can you imagine the joy that will fill our hearts when the King, himself, calls us by name and welcomes us home?  Can you imagine how honored we will feel to sit and dine at His table, not only for one night, but for all of eternity?  Can you imagine how overjoyed we will be when He gives us the mansion He has personally prepared for us?  Can you imagine how amazing it will feel when He tells us we’ve done a good job? Nothing on this earth will ever compare to the honor we will receive from the King!

“His lord said, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.  Enter into the joy of your lord.”  Matthew 25:21

Well Done Good and Faithful Servant
