As I read the scriptures in
Matthew 11:25-28 quoted below, and give consideration to these verses, the question that lingers in my mind is, “Are You Revealed?”
Will God say to you, “…I never knew you: depart from me...” This is what you, as the reader must determine. Your Pastor or Sunday School Teacher cannot tell you. We each determine our eternity through our own heart.
God, through the Holy Spirit gives us the “saving faith” by which we can get saved. However, in order to activate that faith, we must learn what our faith is. In the Book of Romans, we find:
Three things must happen: 1.) We confess Jesus to others (include your heart also,) and 2.) Believe that “…God hath raised him from the dead,..” then 3.) God will save you. Our given faith must have some knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus the Christ.
Therefore, the question still stands for you to answer. “Are You Revealed?” Again, only you can know the depth of your Salvation. Once we have accepted Jesus, we are to repent of our sins and follow Jesus in Baptism. We must remember that we all will be judged at some point, regardless of who or what we think we are. We will be judged.
The saved will have their “works” tested for reward. The “un-revealed” will be cast into hell. Where do you stand with God? Do you stand with God? When you are called into eternity, will Jesus “reveal” you to His Father, our Lord God in Heaven?
