You may think that you need to clean up your act first but God is really the only one who can clean up your act. You might think that this is not the best season for you because you’re too busy or you have too many responsibilities. Maybe a later time would be better. Is that what you’ll think when you stand before God to receive your reward? Will you think, “I’m glad I didn’t step up my game earlier”? Or, “I wish I had not expanded the kingdom as much as I did, I’m sorry that I spent so much time and energy following Jesus when I could have been doing other things”. I don’t think we’ll truly know the beauty of the influence of God’s love through us until we stand before God and fully know as we are known by God.
Why not live the present as if there is a very definite future with God? He has created a place for you. It’s a place where you fit perfectly. A place that you were designed to occupy. Why not start today and take your place?
