Everyone around the world is watching the FIFA World Cup. But will winning the World Cup really matter the day you die? Will it really matter in front of the Lord Jesus Christ on Judgement Day if you won a nice gold shiny trophy? No it won't. The only thing that is going to matter is whether you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour or you don't. It's one or the other. Either you believe in Jesus or you don't. Either you are born-again or your not. A World Cup win will no matter in front of the Lord on Judgement Day. Why? Because it's a temporal thing, it's a worldly thing. It has temporary value but not eternal value. It will not last for eternity. "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth." Colossians 3:2 The world and everything in it will pass away and we should not love the the things in it. If we do, then the love of the Father is not in us. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." 1 John 2:15 The world is passing away just like the Word of God tells us. "And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever." 1 John 2:17 Focus on the Word of God and the living Word which is Jesus Christ. Jesus breath all of His Word into all 66 books that is what we know as the Holy Bible. The things of the world are going to pass away and they will not matter. But the things of the Lord will abide forever and will matter for eternity. Examples are sharing the gospel, praying, reading the bible, fasting, tithing, blessing those around you. Those things have eternal value and everything will be judged on Judgement Day. Keep preaching Christ crucified and His resurrection my brothers and sisters and thank the Father for giving up His only begotten Son Jesus Christ for our sins! And ask the Holy Spirit to empower you to be bold for Jesus Christ so we can share the gospel with no fear. Please pray for me over here my brothers and sister to continue to be bold for Jesus Christ and not back down no matter what. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!!!
