What Will You Do with Jesus?

An old hymn we sing sometimes during worship is, "What Will You Do with Jesus?".  The chorus goes like this:

What will you do with Jesus, my friend? 
Neutral you cannot be;
Some day your heart will be asking, O friend,
 "What will he do with me?"

As we go throughout this day and every day, these questions should be the theme of our day....or rather our answers should be the theme of our lives. 

1.  What will I do with Jesus?  What did I do with Him yesterday?  What have I done with Him in the past month?  My answers should be that I have shared Jesus to the best of my ability and to the glory of God.  My answer should also be that I strived to make Him Lord of my life each and every day by "picking up my cross" and walking as He walked...using His life as an example, so that I can be an example to others.

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
Luke 9:23-26

2.  What will He do with me?  Judgement Day is coming.  It is very real.  The Bible said that many who believe they are on the right path are not.  The right path is plainly written out in the Bible.  It's not a man-made creed or plan, but it is a plan that will change our heart.  It will change our heart to want to serve others and "bear fruit" for Him (see verses below). 

It's a wonderful and complete plan that was inspired by God and planned by God.  He wants ALL people to be saved, but He won't force anyone to follow Him.  So....what will He do with YOU and I on that day?  We can be assured of life with Him in Eternity!

 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
Matthew 7:13-14

Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
Matthew 7:19-23

And I think that's one of the biggest challenges. It's not hard on Sundays at church but in our everyday life, especially when unexpected things come up and mess up MY schedule. :)
