But the wise will shine like the brightness of the heavenly expanse. And those bringing many to righteousness will be like the stars forever and ever.” (Daniel 12:3)
You have the potential to be a star for all of eternity, shining in all of the brilliance of heaven. And those who are engaged in turning many to righteousness will shine even more brilliantly according to this passage.
Since the Word of God and the souls of people will be the only things to last forever, it makes sense for us to spend our time, talent, and treasure to win as many people to Jesus Christ as possible.
The eternal factor that all of the human race has to consider, is the most important decision any individual faces. It determines our eternal destiny!
In the book of Proverbs, we are exhorted to seek wisdom. Such wisdom includes being involved in winning souls for Christ by helping in what many Christians refer to as the Great Commission.
All of us need to find ways in which we can be a part of God’s redemption plan for humankind. Those who do have the promise and expectation of shining like a star forever!
Today, ask yourself:
What am I specifically doing to help fulfill the Great Commission?
