In the end…

As we wrap up this series of blogs on God’s will, let’s conclude with a look at what really matters.  If  someone gave you an “End of Life” test, a series of questions to use near your last days, it might look something like this:

1. Who did you love?

2. Who loved you?

3. What did you accomplish for God?

4. Who is Jesus of Nazareth?

Let’s face it–the most important thing in life is a relationship with God, knowing Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  That’s why the Parable of the Rich Fool (Luke 12:15-21) is so powerful.

Then Jesus said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”  And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest.  He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’  Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain.  And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’  But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’  This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

What are your answers to the End of Life Test?  Do you know the right answer to question 4?  When it comes to God’s will, what really matters is this from 1 Timothy 2:3-6.  “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people.”
