When we think about the time we spend living our lives for the Lord, we have a tendency to focus on duration. But God focuses on donation. We focus on longevity, but God focuses on legacy. We may hear someone say, “I’ve been saved for twenty years.” And that may be true, but that person’s been out of God’s will for eighteen of those years. So, Pastor Ford will explain that at the judgment seat of Christ, they’ll only get credit for the two years they were living in the will of God.
