Have you ever thought of who will be waiting for you when you get to Heaven? Your family members? Your friends? Your mentors?
I heard this phrase the other day, “who will YOU be waiting for”? Who have you mentored in life or led to Christ that will one day be in Heaven? Isn’t that a neat thought? Can you just imagine that the people you have poured into will one day sing praise to Jesus with you in Heaven?
We always think about the people who have done so much for us but really, we need to think about what we can do for others. It just gives me chills thinking about it. Jesus had a life of servitude towards others and called us to do it too. It shouldn’t be “what can you do for me” it SHOULD be “what can I do to help you”.
Even if someone goes to Heaven before you, wouldn’t it be cool to know that you played a hand in helping them get there? I mean, they did the legwork (along with Jesus), but you played a part. Who will you be rooting on from Heaven? I want to be at those gates greeting people all the time! I wonder if they have a bell or a paging service that when someone you knows is coming up, you greet them!
When you get up there will you hear “Well done, good and faithful servant” or will you hear something else?
