“Next Stop... Home”
Everyone needs an answer to two questions first, how to live right while on earth and where will they go after death. The answer to pleasing God is found in His word and the church that promotes His doctrine. Heaven bound people should concern themselves with pure worship, and promoting the necessities that the Lord requires. It takes wisdom and knowledge to submit totally to the things of God and be participants of His kingdom.
Love is the medium for expressing the kingdom on earth, therefore, it is expected to be demonstrated in our lives by efforts of compassion, forgiveness, teaching, prayer, feeding and helping the less fortunate. It is all about seeing the works of God made manifest in the life of those we come across and making others see the glory of God through us. God expects every man to be committed to things pertaining to the church, and He wants our focus and involvement. We need to take His message to those we meet as we journey through life. By passing the message on to others, it can affect the lives of many. We must align our lives with the biblical concepts of justice, mercy and faithfulness. As Jesus was attracted to sinner, we must also seek the lost.
The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations...
"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep for the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundations of the world." (Matt. 25:31-34)
THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME...
This world is not my home, I'm just a passing thru. My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue. The angels beckon me from heaven's open door.
They're all expecting me, and that's one thing I know. My Savior pardoned me and now I onward go. I know He'll take me thru tho' I am weak and poor.
Just up in glory land we'll live eternally. The saints on every hand are shouting victory. Their songs of sweetest praise drift back from heaven's shore.
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore. O Lord, you know I have no friend like you. If heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do? The angels beckon me from heaven's open door.
