Word for Today: Use Your Work to glorify God on earth.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS).
“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ” ( Colossians 3:23-24).
In Christ, our God is very much against laziness and non-challance. If you are hardworking, and you apply the principles of God in Christ, you can never lack in anything.
To excel in life, you must embrace the attitude of hard work and apply God’s principles.
One clear attribute that our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ exhibited while on earth was hard work and diligence . He was not only hardworking but diligent, zealous and sincere.
God is so much against laziness that His word says, a lazy person should not eat. Of course, the end result of not eating is death! Hear what the word of God says through apostle Paul: “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10). We are honour and glorify God in Christ, when we do our work heartily as to the Lord, and not unto men.
Aside from hard work, one of the very key principles of God is DILIGENCE. In a very simple term, diligence means paying ATTENTION to MINUTE DETAILS in what ever you are doing. The Word says: ‘Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men’ (Proverbs 22:29).
Truly all the promises and blessings of God are tied to diligent obedience of His words as in Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Exodus 15:26.
God will not bless a lazy person. Also, one can be hardworking without seeing results, if he does not apply the principles of God. To obtain God’s blessing, you have to be hardworking, diligent, transparent, sincere, honest, dedicated, and generous. Non challant attitude to work is a major cause of failure and destruction. The book of Proverbs says: ‘He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster’ (Proverbs 18:9).
“But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work” (John 5:17).
Stay connected to JESUS, the Word of God. Be wise. Be enlightened.
Be spiritual, bold and courageous. Become a DISCIPLE , AMBASSADOR and a MISSIONARY for Jesus Christ as you go about your daily affairs.
Ensure you think no evil against anyone.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Be compassionate and kind to one another.
Thank you JESUS for the heavenly wisdom in your words.
Dear Father, we pray for everyone sincerely connected to your Word, that they will use their work on earth to honour you in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
