Hard Work - Wednesday, June 27th 2012
1 Corinthians 9:9
"For it is written in the law of Moses, 'You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.' Is it oxen God is concerned about?"
Work is a good thing. God created work in the beginning before sin was part of the equation. On top of that, each one of us is gifted with talents and strengths that can be used for God. So, that said, "Are you ready?" God could place a giant billboard in the sky proclaiming Himself to the world, but He has chosen to use you and me. We are the people of God who get to share the story of God with a world in need of God.
"So how's it work?" Simple, get involved. Begin serving in your church. Look for opportunities all around you to share the love and words of Jesus. There will be times that it's hard but God will bless your hard work. Over time, you will look behind you to see a harvest of lives impacted by your diligence. Together, we can change the world for Christ. Let's Go.
Life Lesson: We should work hard and God blesses hard work.
Thank You for salvation and Your many blessings. Give me a hunger to know Your Word and to share it with those around me. Open my eyes to opportunities to serve others and serve You whether in my church or around the corner. Fill me with Your Spirit and equip me for the work You have ready for me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
