Have you Rewarded Jesus Today?

(I entered this onto my Sunday School class website after our pastor, Tom McCoy, shared a powerful and moving video with the congregation a few months back. Many of you will recognize what I've written below. For those who do not, the video is too good not to pass on so I link you to it at the bottom of this post.)

The great preacher, Paris Reidhead, in his well-known sermon Ten Shekels and a Shirt, told the story of two young Moravian men who sold themselves into slavery in order to spread the news of Jesus Christ to those who otherwise would never receive it. They received ten shekels and a shirt which they used to pay for their voyage to the island where they would spend the rest of their earthly lives as slaves. As the ship they were on was leaving the pier, friends and family, seeing them for the last time, heard one shout, “May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!”

I challenge you to find a way every day to reward Jesus for His suffering. - click on the video titled, The Heart of the Matter. It is long, but worth your time.
