And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.”
We don’t impress God. We say things and promise things that we never do. That gets us no points with the Father. Look to what you do. Are you doing things God’s way or your way. Surrender to Him. Let Jesus guide you in the right way.
