“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Jesus did not only solve the burdens that we have while we live on the earth,
but also our suffering in hell because of the wages of sin.
We live to thank the Lord for his grace and worship Him and work for Him and pray
and preach the gospel. When you look with the eyes of the body, these things
seem a waste of time, but with the eyes of the spirit, we are spending our time
wisely for the time of soul.
God sent his only son to the earth to die, shedding blood on the cross, and he has
saved us, not watching human’s destruction indifferently. This is the conscience of
God for man. The one who knows the grace of God has the conscience of faith, and
he who has this conscience should be faithful to the point of death.
God sent his son to die instead of mankind and saved his people who had to die for
their sins. What we, who are saved from the anguish in hell, have to do is work
faithfully for the Lord God to express our gratitude. That is the conscience of
human beings. Therefore, what we work faithfully for the Lord with the conscience
of faith is the only way that we can store up treasure in heaven, not wasting time.
A man who has the conscience of faith never wastes time. On the contrary,
he earnestly makes the best use of the time of the body to win souls around him
and to fulfill the will of God. We must spend our days with the conscience of faith
and the days should be remembered as the best days in God’s heart. He who lived
for 70 years on the earth can store up 70 years in heaven, he who lived 80 can
store 80s, and hw who lived 90 years can store 90.
