Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord. Matthew 25:23
For those who serve the Lord faithfully on earth, the best is still ahead. The Lord will not say to us, “Enter into this boring place called heaven.” He won’t say, “Come on in and be seated for an endless church service.” Nor will He say, “Enter into the humdrum of heaven.”
Jesus used the word JOY.
The Bible gives us glimpses of the new heavens, the new earth, and the city of New Jerusalem. Throughout the Bible we have descriptions of our eternal home. It will be a place of enthusiasm, energy, and adventure. His servants will serve Him there, and our work will be meaningful. We’ll be able to accomplish it without frustration or fatigue, and everything will be done with harmony and holiness. The air of heaven will be fresh, full of praise, and bright as sunshine. You’ll never be bored.
So get ready! Be a good and faithful servant today at whatever God is calling you to do.
There will be new planets to develop, new principles to discover, new joys to experience. Every moment of eternity will be an adventure of discovery. Ray Stedman
