What Really Counts

2 Corinthians 5:10 (AMPC): "For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive [his pay] according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil [considering what his purpose and motive have been, and what he has achieved, been busy with, and given himself and his attention to accomplishing]."

Isn't it amazing how easily we get caught up living each day only for that day? We face and chase after things that, for the moment, seem monumental. Yet the truth is: most of the things that take up our time, attention, and effort may have very little eternal significance. That doesn't mean we should ignore our responsibilities or neglect the practical tasks necessary to meet our goals. Rather, we should be careful to weigh up whether what we dedicate our time to is being a joyful, dedicated service to Christ and His kingdom, or a self-serving endeavour. The truth is, when all is said and done, and we stand before Jesus, all that will matter is what He will say to us when we look into His eyes. God has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness, including the power, strength, and ability of His Holy Spirit to do all things with excellence and efficiency. Let's live each day pursuing what really counts in a manner that will not leave us standing ashamed before our King.
