For all we don’t know about the next life—this much is certain. The day Christ comes will be a day of reward. A day in the winner’s circle! Those who went unknown on earth will be known in heaven. Those who never heard the cheers of men will hear the cheers of angels. Those who missed the blessing of a father will hear the blessing of their heavenly Father. The small will be great. The forgotten will be remembered. The unnoticed will be crowned and the faithful will be honored!
Ephesians 6:8 says, “The Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he or she does, whether slave or free.” The winner’s circle is not reserved for a handful of the elite, but for a heaven full of God’s children who “will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him!” (James 1:12).
