We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word and how it applies to us daily.
"Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "Write: 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them." -Revelation 14:13
Over and over again we get to see God's heart for His people. He knows that the labor of these saints is strenuous. He knows that they will have to be deadly serious about their work until the very end. By John's pen He encourages them through the promise of rest; and in some measure, that their works have meaning. Their works have eternal meaning because they are wrought faithfully in His name! May we be like these saints, looking to our rest and not crippled by a fixation on it. Instead, let us be working for the kingdom until the end. May it be said of us that our works follow us.
