Obedience, Sacrifice, Suffering and Cross-Bearing
What is the record of your life?
You may come to regret your smallest disobedience when the day comes. You might say, “Oh no! My disobedience was recorded!” That will be read in eternity.
But if your record is like the Son of God who is faithful in sacrifices, in suffering, in cross-bearing, in burden-sharing, in fruit-bearing — many people will read about you. You will be a hero in the Kingdom of God.
Do you know who records our life? The angels do. Each one of us has a guardian angel to record our life.
Every deed of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah was recorded by the angels and presented to the Lord, as we can read in Genesis 18: 20-21:
20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
The same thing will happen in the world today.
The rule of judgment in the last days is whether you have repented or not, and whether you have become a child of God or not.
Do not complain against the Will of the Father even when it means death. Every murmur you make is recorded by the angels.
The Begotten Son went to the cross without complaint. He lost not only His money, but He lost His life. He did not only lose His relatives, but He lost everything.
As the Son who is the standard of righteousness, He did not complain but said, “Not my will but Thy will be done!”
This is the standard in the Kingdom: Not my will but Your will be done!
