Accepted of Him

2 Corinthians 5:9 KJV Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
As we are looking forward to heaven, we must understand that we will stand before the Lord Jesus Christ and give an account of what we did with the life He gave us at salvation. We should be concerned with whether or not our actions on this earth will be acceptable to Him. The issue here is not our salvation. We are eternally secure the moment we trust Christ as Savior. The issue is whether or not how we lived our life is acceptable to Him. We spend a lot of time and energy to be accepted by the world. If we should gain that acceptance, it is only temporary. The acceptance of our Lord is eternal. Let’s labor today in a way that will acceptable to Him.
