Just a simple thought:

If we aren’t willing to serve Him now, in this life, would we be willing to serve Him in the new life to come? 

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. – Matthew 7:21

James 2:14-26

There was a time when I was a most carnal Christian. I certainly wanted to live with God into eternity. But He could do the work on earth Himself. I was good with being un-transformed. Yet through His never ending grace and mercy He has shown me the error of my ways.

I now gladly work for Him at this present time with much joy and satisfaction. I know the work He puts before me I can accomplish. I know that He would never put in front of me a job I could not finish. 

Do you still feel that way? That you’re good with doing your own thing? 

What about doing life God’s way? Just stop and ask Him, “what would you like me to do today?” What could it hurt?
