"You serve a prince who knows your heart. Nothing pleases Him more than for you to love Him completely.
Check your heart. If you find that a transfer of title has indeed been made out to Christ, praise God that you are a citizen of heaven and not of hell. Mark the day of your spiritual birth on the calendar of your heart and call for a celebration! It is your marriage day: "I have espoused you to one husband... Christ," Paul told the Corinthians 2 Corinthians 11:2. This same Christ has given you the promise of eternal life. Do you know that from the hour you come under His dominion, all the sweet fruit of the tree of life is yours? It is a perfect gift given in perfect love to the bride, which He is even now perfecting.
Dear saint, remind yourself often of the change that God has made in you. Satan will tempt you to doubt the wisdom of choosing Christ as your sovereign, so nail God's promises on the upper doorpost of your heart. They will keep your soul in quarantine; Satan will run from them as from the plague. And don't let time erode the memory of the smokey hole where Satan kept you in the bondage of sin, or he may entice you back with his old lies and broken promises. Compare this horror to the taste of heaven you have already received and know that your greatest joy on earth is but a whiff of all that heaven holds.
Clinging to such a wonderful prospect should give you the courage you need to serve Christ faithfully while Satan's principality prospers all around you. You cannot excuse yourself from service. Even though you may not be called to preach and baptize, you can still be used to help those who are. Your prayers whet the minister's sword; they break down barriers so Christ's kingdom can be enlarged.
You serve a prince who knows your heart. Nothing pleases Him more than for you to love Him completely. How he longs to know that you were free to choose your own king and to make your own laws, you would choose none other than Himself, nor any laws except those He has already decreed.”
The truth we see laid out to us above will cause us to rejoice or weep depending our relationship to the Savior. 
The hour has come for us to keep a close eye on where our hearts are in relationship to our King.
