Will you pass the test?


In this life, we represent many things. To some people, we are all like actors on the grand stage of life. You appear on stage when it’s your time and disappear when you are done. It does not matter how long you stayed on that stage, what matters is what you did on that stage; whether it would stand the test of time and whether your works would be remembered long after you are gone.
In the Bible, we are mostly compared to laborers or builders. Some build works of wood, clay, stones, gold and others. On this earth, we all do build up something whether shabby or excellent. Have you ever wondered what would be left if your life or your works on this earth was passed through the fire? Would there be only ashes left or a lustrous bar of gold that would be preserved forever?

In this life, tests are not uncommon to anyone. But what most people don’t know is that, tests are brought our way not to break us down but to make us stronger. When teachers give us tests in school, it is not their aim to find a way to fail us and make us retake their classes but to evaluate our progress and make us better students. So why can’t people understand that tests of life serve the same purpose?

So, are your works solid enough to survive the ferocious test of fire? Are they worthy and precious enough to behold after the tough storms of life have blown harshly at them? Will God be proud of your works or condemn them? The yardstick for evaluating your works is the Word of God. Whatever God abhors or is pleased with is written clearly in the Bible. Make it a point to read it regularly; apply it to your life and examine it carefully.
Life is too short to be wasted; there are lots of lessons to learn and many tests to pass. Live your life well according to God’s way and every test would be a success story for you because God gives the strength to overcome.

Have a blessed day, folks!
