Frequent Flyer Benefits - #6582
The greatest benefits go to those who stay with Jesus, no matter what. He has some wonderful blessings, some unspeakable joy, and some tremendous rewards for you if you'll stay faithful for a few more miles. In the words of Galatians 6:9, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
Fireproof Faithfulness - #6360
Jesus says, "I want to put in your life...In fact, I want to make you a faithful fountain and we'll be able to handle any fire, any storm, any hurt, any disappointment. Oh, you'll still be able to perform even with the fire closing in around you because of two words." He says, "I will put the source in him...that's inside of you." That's opposed to just being something around you.
It Really is "How You Play the Game" - #6072
Hold your head high, no matter what position you play. Don't let that discouragement wear you down any more - not if you're giving it all you've got. If you are, then in God's eyes, the only opinion that ultimately matters you are a champion. Earth may not have many rewards for you. But God's gold medal will one day hang around your neck!

The important thing to remember is who you are doing these things for, who is the commanding officer? It is the Lord Christ you are serving!

The service awards are coming! Work with all your heart for General Jesus and prepare yourself for a lot of exciting, eternal surprises the day Christ gives His awards.
Small things - a Christian perspective

He is faithful - a Christian perspective
God has promised to forgive us when we come to him in repentance. Because He is a faithful God and true to His word, we need not ever doubt that He will hold to that promise when we seek forgiveness.
