Do Believers in Christ Face Judgment?
Pastor Louie takes listeners further into a conversation about life and death by addressing the reality of the Great White Throne Judgment. The truth is that believers in Christ will face a post-salvation judgment of their works – not for the sake of admittance into the Kingdom and the presence of God but for the sake of reward. Those who invest in what is earthly will see all their treasure burn up as waste but those who live faithfully, having invested their resources and time into the Kingdom, will reap an eternal reward. VERSES // Revelation 20:11-15, 2 Corinthians 5:6-10, Hebrews 9:27, 1 Corinthians 2:10-15, 2 Corinthians 5:9-21, 2 Timothy 4:6-8
What on Earth Are You Doing with Your Life?
Pastor Louie challenges listeners by drawing attention to the 'dash' that represents our lives–the tiny mark on gravestones that properly represents the 'mist' of a life we live. Ironically, however, it is the brevity of life that reminds us how precious it is to live and how crucial it is to live for Jesus. VERSES // 2 Peter 3:8-15, Psalm 90:10-12, Psalm 39:4-5, James 4:13-17, Luke 12:14-21
7 Things You Can’t Do in Heaven
Pastor Louie points out seven things we cannot do in heaven that we are going to wish we did on Earth. These are the temporary opportunities that we all will think more about when we come face to face with Jesus. Since we have just “five seconds” to live for the Kingdom of God, let us be people who leverage all five for His glory! VERSES // Revelation 20:11-21, Revelation 21:3-5, Luke 19:11-26, Matthew 6:19-20
