THERE IS GREAT REWARD FOR YOUR WORK IN THE GOSPEL
1 Corinthians 15:58 (AMPC), “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labour in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose].”
As a believer in Christ, one of the greatest privileges you have and would ever receive is the opportunity to work alongside the Lord to birth God’s purpose on the earth and in your environment. Apostle Paul speaking along these lines in 1 Corinthians 3:9 (NKJV) said, “For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.” Wow, think about the honour to be regarded as God’s fellow worker. Listen to this: Yes, it is true that God is all-powerful, but every time God wants to do great things on the earth, He wants to do it with you.
Be excited about your opportunity to be responsible for God’s affairs. Always remember that God “…is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6b NKJV). Listen dear friend, there is actually nothing you would give your time, energy or life to that would be worth as much as the gospel of our Lord Jesus. It is therefore time to do much more for the Lord.
FURTHER STUDY: Revelation 12:22 (NKJV), “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to everyone according to his work.”
CONFESSION: I BOLDLY CONFESS, I AM EXCITED TO BE A CO-LABOURER WITH GOD MY MAKER. I GLADLY GIVE MY TIME, MY ENERGY, MY CREATIVITY, AND EVEN MY MONEY FOR THE SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL. MY REWARD IS COMING SPEEDILY.
ACTION POINT: Strategize to do more for the gospel. Join a service unit this week.
