God Rewards All Those Who Put Things in Their Proper Order

ORDER

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
–Hebrews 11:6

God is a merciful bestower of rewards to His followers.

And God rewards ALL those who put things in their PROPER place–and their PROPER place is God is FIRST; everything else is SECOND.

God’s Word declares the many ways one can demonstrate that God is FIRST.

1- God is FIRST among those who diligently seek Him.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
–Hebrews 11:6

2- God is FIRST among those who FEAR Him.

God’s Word lists LOTS of benefits for those who FEAR Him.

“In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.”
–Proverbs 14:26

“The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.”
–Psalm 34:7

“And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.”
–Job 28:28

“And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.”
–Exodus 20:20

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
–Proverbs 1:7

“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.”
–Isaiah 33:6

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”
–Proverbs 9:10

FEAR OF THE LORD releases MANY rewards from Him.

“And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.”
–Luke 1:50

3- God is FIRST among those who work hard for the kingdom of heaven.

“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”
–Colossians 3:23-24

4- God is FIRST and rewards all those who labor in well doing.

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
–Galatians 6:9

5- God is FIRST among those who DELIGHT in Him.

“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
–Psalm 37:4

6- God is FIRST among those who do work in His name.

“For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”
–Hebrews 6:10

7- God is FIRST among those who LOVE Him.

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.”
–James 1:12

God rewards ALL THOSE who put Him first and EVERYTHING ELSE, second.

Jesus made the same kind of statements: put Jesus first, EVERYTHING ELSE, second.

“He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
–Matthew 10:37

“If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.”
–Luke 14:26

If any man be not willing to hazard the loss of his father and mother, &c., that is, postpone not the consideration of them, love them not in a less degree than the favour of God, and the interest of my religion; let him not be one of my followers, who must benefit others by their instructions and example, and who, if they fall away in the approaching time of trial, will fall away to perdition.
–Archbishop Newcome, British Family Bible Notes

Many are the rewards of a merciful God.

There are so many ways to reap those rewards of God, its a wonder that so FEW do.

Does the reader have everything in its proper place for the end times?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
