After the death of my stepfather around Christmas last year, I found that I had a real lack of scriptural knowledge about the actual life we will have with Christ in Heaven once we die.
Those of us in the Christian community have no doubt heard about and read the book, The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson. I was delighted to find another book and lecture series by Mr. Wilkinson called A Life God Rewards. After listening to this series, I found that our life with Christ after death is influenced by how we live in this life. There is a purpose for this life and it includes preparing ourselves for eternal life in heaven.
James 1:12 (KJV). Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
Colossians 3: 23-24 (KJV).And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
If you get the opportunity, please take the time to view the Life God Rewards lecture series by Bruce Wilkinson. It is a blessing.
