CHECK YOUR WORK – Be Honest with Yourself

CHECK YOUR WORK:::: There’s at least 6 levels of ministry work you can do if you are a servant of the Lord: Gold, Silver, Precious Stones, Wood, Hay, and Stubble. The first 3 last thru the fire, the second 3 get burned up.
Its easy to lie to yourself and say that everything you have ever done for the Lord was Gold, Silver, and Precious Stones instead of Wood, Hay & Stubble. But if you take an honest look at your discipleship fruit and use discernment, you will see areas where some of the work you did did NOT last… some was fleshly, some of it was error. If all your disciples fall away from the faith or get caught up in sin or go back into the love of the world, something is wrong. Don’t be so impressed with yourself that you can’t see that some of your work was worthless!
Instead of lying to ourselves, lets listen to the Lord and make the improvements that will cause our fruit to REMAIN, and cause our work to STAND thru the fire! That way our reward is MAXIMIZED and we are getting into the kingdom of heaven having done much more than barely making it in, having done nothing valuable for the kingdom. Check your work!
1 Corinthians 3

 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
