WHAT YOU DO FOR GOD
Hebrews 6:10-12 (10) – God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. (NIV)
Muhammad Ali was not only one of the best heavyweights of all time, but he was also one of the most decorated boxers. He won the gold medal at the 1960 Olympics and subsequently became the first boxer to win the heavyweight title three times. Ali terrorised his opponents and finished his career with a 56-5 record, including 37 Knock-Outs. He was the best, but not anymore, not because he was retired but because he is a mortal human.
The point here is that life is about time and seasons; nobody stays at the top forever (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8). Regardless of how exceptional and celebrated you are today, it will never continue for life. Man has got a short memory of your best days and can forget your generous deeds easily. A good example was when Joseph was forgotten despite interpreting the dream that saved the butler (Genesis 40:23). Similarly, the people you sing their praises today will not be there tomorrow. Soon, the world will start referring to them once upon a time. However, it is what is done for God that will stand the test of time.
Beloved, as seen in our Bible reading, do you know that God does not forget a thing? He rewards those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6B). For example, when Solomon did what nobody ever did, God presented him with a blank cheque (2 Chronicles 1:1-12). The question for you and me is: what are we doing for God at home, work, community or the Church? Think about this, and ensure that everything you do for the Lord counts in eternity (1 Corinthians 3:10-15).
Hymn: Anywhere with Jesus – Jessie B. Pounds (1887)
1. Lord Jesus, help me to spend and be spent for You.
1. This week, my name and identity shall attract help from God and man.
2. My dream and prayer altar! Receive the fire of revival.
3. I shall not die nor lose my relatives, friends, colleagues and church members to death and terror.
HAVE A FRUITFUL WEEK
