Are You Living Up To God's Expectations?

This really made me think...

"Perhaps when we are taken up to heaven and Jesus leads us through the gate, He will stop and introduce us to a very shining, beautiful soul who is receiving great honor.  We will curiously ask Jesus, "Who is this person?  They are certainly remarkable.  What did they do with their life?"  Then Jesus will turn to us with a tear in His eye and whisper, "This is you.  This is what you could have been."

"Don't be satisfied to live under the influence of spiritual Demerol, accepting the mediocrity of the easiest path and reaching out to no one because you "deserve" a rest.  Instead, remember that the Apostle Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus, "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, ..." (Ephesians 3:20).  Every day is a gift.  What will you do with it?"

Does that make you think about whether or not you are making sure that you are living your life in alignment with God's will for you?  Do you ask Him daily to reveal His will for your life?
