Being a Christian is like saving for a rainy day. You know that sooner or later you will need it and by having it, you save yourself tons of grief. Death and Judgment for man is certain; all will give account for their existence, so one must have Christianity to be able to stand. 2 Cor 5:10. Acts 4.12.
Since Christians recognize they will stand before God, it drives them to make the most of their time on earth. It drives them to persevere and overcome challenges. It drives them to pray fervently to God for everyday help and strength. It drives them to educate themselves in the scriptures so that they will know what God expects from them.
Christians spend a great deal of time with other Christians and miss them greatly when they aren't around. This is so, because every time Christians are with ungodly people it isn't inspiring for them. Christians want to be around others who are going to heaven and can also help them go to as well. Sort of like the saying, ?birds of a feather, stick together?. I?m sure you get what I mean. To all Christians, keep up the good work. When you stand before God on Judgment Day, you will see that all the hardship you endured on earth was well worth it, because you didn't fail your faith.
