Coming back to being honored by serving Jesus
John 12:26 - If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
After the many messages and understandings we received, we are come back to our original scripture of serving Jesus and being honored by the Father.
The question to us all is - are we living just to receive our salvation and enter the Kingdom of Heaven? If you are making a trip for vacations to another country do you just book your flight ticket and go to sleep? Are you not bothered about where you will put up? Will it be comfortable and from there where all you can visit and see?
The Kingdom of Heaven is not one big hall where all will go. The earth is like a toy house compared to God's Kingdom for it has many levels wherein one can not go from a lower level to upper level. If you want to be nearer to the Father, you need to be at the top level. For this you need to be honored by the Father and this can be achieved not in Heaven but here on earth by serving the Lord Jesus with all your heart and spirit and without having any concern for your body.
Remember the life we spend here on earth is like a day to what we will spend if we enter the Kingdom of Heaven. So where do you what more comfort - for a day or for a life time, on earth or in the Kingdom of Heaven?
Also remember those who reject Christ and do not abide in His Word will spend the same lifetime in hell.

25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
