What are you taking to the throne room with you?

Towards the end of last year, I completed a self-evaluation questionnaire on discovering one’s purpose. Once I completed the questionnaire, there was one question that kept coming back to me over and over again. It was ‘what will you take to the throne room with you?’ In fact it was the background against which I wrote the first post of the year ‘2015 is a gift’. Over the past few months, this question has come more to the forefront of my mind. So I decided to do what I normally do, share it with you.

So what will you take to the throne room with you? For many of us, we feel that dealing with the present pressures of life is more than enough work for us to be getting on with, yet the reality is that one day, we will all have to give an account of ourselves. I believe that as long as we are on planet earth, God is giving us an opportunity to ‘develop’ those things that will count for the future.

Of course, none of us knows the format of ‘our account’ but we are given a glimpse by Paul’s statement in 2 Timothy 4:6-8:

For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.

What will you say you did? Build a business, have a career, raise children? – many people do this successfully but the key for the Christian is ‘for what purpose?

I built a business to provide employment, alienate poverty and used the wealth to build and expand God’s kingdom is much better than I have a business. I had a career using the intelligence You have given me to influence society, make life better for others and demonstrate God’s kingdom in that sphere of society is much better than I had a career. You get the message!

Our current life is a preparation for the future and we are being given an opportunity to rehearse for it now.

What’s interesting is that since asking myself this question I have had to think of motive as well. Is my motive to love, please and serve my Master? That’s a discussion for another day.

In conclusion, we know that faith without works is dead. What are your works that you are going to take to the throne room?

So until I appear again in your inbox with more insight from the scriptures, stay blessed
