GOD’S RETIREMENT PLAN
“In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
John 14:2, 3 KJV
People start preparing for retirement when they start work but there is a better plan than Social Security and a retirement plan here on earth and it is God’s retirement plan. When God calls us home and we retire from God’s service, we have a mansion that Jesus has already prepared for us.
We read in the Bible. “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:” (Matthew 6:19, 20).
It is important that we prepare for our retirement here on earth, but it is much more important that we have God’s retirement plan in our heart. If you have never invited Jesus into your heart to be your personal Saviour, I urge you, I plead with you to give your heart to Jesus before it is too late.
Heavenly Father, I pray for every person who has never said yes to Jesus. May today be the day they humble themselves and invite Jesus into their heart. Jesus, thank You for loving me, for never leaving me and for preparing a place for me. I love You and long to see You face to face. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
