Job 27:19

Job 27:19…”He lies down wealthy, but will do so no more; when he opens his eyes, all is gone.” When we stand before God and give an account for our lives, there will be no additional opportunities for repentance and faith in Christ. We won’t be able to present our worldly success as an offering to a Holy God who commands us to turn from worldliness to Him. In Mark 8:36, Jesus said, “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” Jesus wants our hearts and minds, and the troubles of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth blind us to the truth about Him (Matthew 13). In (Mark) verse 38, He goes on to say, “If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
