How do we quanitfy the value of the work we are charged to do for the lost people of the world? It is near impossible to consider the concept of eternity.
The greatest joy of all is having the rest and comfort of Christ during times of fear and concern. “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” says the Lord.

Heirs OF God, the portion of Romans chapter eight is one that gives the greatest anticipation for the Glory of Heaven and everlasting life. How those who have trusted in Christ are adopted Children of the living infinite God of Heaven and how we share in the inheritance of Christ. Incredible. Why wait before you turn to the Lord? To what end is this temporary life and all its endeavours, when you can live with divine purpose and a calling that is absolute and an inheritance that can never fade away? Why would you go from the darkness of this temporary world and then into the darkness of eternal damnation, WHEN HOPE IS LAID BEFORE YOU? To what end is madness such as that? Only Jesus Christ offers the reward of everlasting life, ONLY HE has ever said and promised, “I give unto them eternal life and they shall never perish” (John 10:28a)
