1 Corinthians 15:58 – Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
When thinking about these facts; the truth of your eternity with the Lord, the thought that Jesus went to the cross willingly for you, the idea that what you do on this earth will determine your heavenly blessings, Paul says, “Work for the Lord so that your labor will not be in vain.” Much of what you do in life with your time, energy, and money is in vain because it is going to fall apart, pass away, or break down. But what you do for God, by worshipping Him, by working for Him and by the gifts you bring Him, will not be in any way vain.
The great news is that God does not pay you for the results of your labors but for the efforts of your labors. This week your challenge is to abound in the work of the Lord. This does not mean that you are to do a whole bunch of activity, we are all busy enough, but rather to simply give God your best efforts each day. Just go about your everyday as you usually would, but be sure to look for those godly opportunities to serve the Lord by serving others. Give God your best efforts. May the Lord bless your week.
Grace be with you,
