No Halls of Fame in Heaven





There are no halls of fame in Heaven
The ground is level at the cross
We employ the gifts He's given
None are greater than, or less

We serve, not for vain recognition
But with humble heart and soul
Knowing God knows our ambition
He can see the unmasked whole

There are no halls of fame in Heaven
Though the enemy suggests
To us that there might be a difference
God loves each of us the best

The inheritance of Heaven
Is for all who will believe
In the gift of God’s redemption
As His mercy we receive
 
Jesus died for every person
Each must strive for the reward
There are no halls of fame in Heaven
Where all glory is the Lord

Sometimes it's easy to look at someone else and think their service is more important, more honorable perhaps...

"He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

...for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." Rom.10:13
