1 Corinthians 15:58; Galatians 6:7-10
Last month we looked at the relief from worry and frustration that comes from learning to let God handle the big things in our lives. He has given us promises concerning how much He cares for us; trusting Him to fulfill them is a tremendous tool with which to face life.
But within the scope of God’s care, there are “assignments” He gives- to be disciple makers (Matthew 28:19, 20), to be involved in His purposes by actively obeying (Ephesians 2:10), to grow in holi-ness, which is separation of ourselves for His exclu-sive use (1 Peter 1:14-16), and other things.
It is important to understand: as He leads us to ac-complish His purposes, He equips us for the task (Hebrews 13:20, 21; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17). We are nev-er alone, always having access to guidance, and when we feel powerless there are reserves from God beyond our mortal strength (2 Corinthians 12:9, 10).
So be encouraged as you serve the Lord each day! Keep on doing the right things even when it means making hard choices. Watch your attitude; it often ex-presses positive or negative aspects beyond what our words might convey. And speaking of words, be very careful- make sure yours are pleasing to Christ in what they communicate. As Paul wrote to the Co-rinthians, know your toil in the Lord, that is your ex-pended energy to and beyond the point of exhaustion, is not in vain (empty, foolish). As one commentator writes about 1 Corinthians 15:58, “All our efforts in service to Christ are invested in his winning cause.”
Take heart, look up, be encouraged. Don’t let past mistakes define you- give them to Christ, accept His forgiveness, and go on growing and serving. Being a joyful and productive servant of Jesus is a matter of our willingness and God’s grace!
