We get one extra day every four years, and what do I do? Taxes! I wish it was easy, and could press a button and have everything fall into place, ready for the accountant. Unfortunately, my record keeping is not good enough to do that, so I must painstakingly compile our income and expenses one by one. I’m still not done! Though I have everything compiled, my accountant has a book, about two inches thick, for me to fill in the blanks! If only I had that button. We try to be as accurate as possible to avoid an audit by the IRS!
One day, we will be held accountable for the things we have done. Thankfully, most of us are hidden in Christ, and our sins are covered. However, there are those who are not fully consecrated to the Lord, and have made a half-hearted commitment to him, if this is you, I fear for you. Are you lukewarm? Riding the middle of the road? Get in, or get out! Let your yeses mean yes, and your noes mean no. There will be no half-hearted souls in heaven, only those who are fully committed to Jesus. Just like being accountable to the government for your income and expenses, you will be accountable to Jesus for your failings, and accomplishments.
“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-16
