The Lord Jesus, through His holy and inspired scripture, guides us to living our lives for the advancement of the kingdom for His glory and His glory alone. The bible clearly conveys to us the importance of doing our very best not necessarily for man but for the one true God.
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24.
“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.” Proverbs 14:23.
The message from the Lord is loud and clear. Do the work! Do your best! Not for me or for you but for Him who reigns above us all. Blessed are those whose mind are in alignment with the most high and His teachings because in obedience we shall live eternal life. Let;’s not forget what was shared by the psalmist, “They (Commands) are a warning to those who hear them; there is great reward for those who obey them.” Psalm 19.
Are you a student near the end of the semester, DO YOUR BEST! Are you a worked near the completion of another working week? DO YOUR BEST! Are you retired planning for what your next goal is life might be? DO YOUR BEST!
In God we live. By God we have hope. And to God should all of our efforts be. If you have ears listen.
