Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the LORD listened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought on his name - Malachi 3:16
There is a book of remembrance in the presence of the LORD. It contains the names of those who fear and please the LORD and their good works.
GOD is a lover of good works and we, his children are admonished to do good works. Our Lord Jesus Christ himself said - "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 5:16). Every apostle, prophet and servant of GOD encourages people to do good works.
Good works are of GOD and they all have their rewards. GOD would personally reward you for your good works and so you must not give up. Hebrews 10:35 says - "Cast not away therefore your confidence, which has great recompense of reward". Your reward is coming do not give up. Your redeemer would come and reward you.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said "Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds"(Rev 22:12).
Hold on to your good works and continue to do good. He that is righteous, let him be righteous still and He that is holy, let him be holy still (Rev 22:11b). GOD will not withhold any good thing from the upright at heart. (Psalm 84:11b)
May the LORD open his book of remembrance and honour you for your good works in JESUS name.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
