Will You Be Poor In Heaven

Did you know Christians can be both poor and ashamed in heaven?

1st John says: "That we may be…unashamed before Him at His coming."

Paul says: "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done in the body, whether GOOD or BAD."

Jesus says: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth…but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…for where your treasure is there your heart will be also."

Salvation is free because no one can earn it, but everything else in the Christian life must be earned. It requires as much commitment and dedication to get ahead in Christ as it does in this life, especially since we have an enemy who does everything he can to hinder our progress.

And we need all the help we can get to invest our lives wisely in Christ. Here at Personal Christianity we have that kind of help available for you from Dr. C. S. Lovett's ministry of helps.
