Galatians 3:3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Work, work, work. That seems like all we ever do. Always so busy. Our place of employment wants more of our time than ever before. They want us to be dedicated to them first and anything else second. Our spouse wants and deserves our time as well. However, we seem to have very little left after all that work. Then there is the church. It tells us we need to be serving God by serving in His church. We know that is true, but how can all this be true when there are only so many hours in the day?
We somehow get the idea that in order to please God we need to be busy all the time. The truth is all the things we do with our lives may glorify God if done for Him. Our place of employment is our mission field where we share with our friends our life in Christ. Our home is our place of encouragement and love. God gave us this for our benefit. Working for the Lord is not something you do only in church. It is a life you live and bring with you to church. Sometimes it seems as though we forget that all we have in salvation is free. We cannot earn it or repay God for it. The gifts and talents given to you by God are to be used as one of the forms of your expression of worship in the Lords House.
Thank God today for allowing you to serve Him with ALL your life in ALL you do. We were saved by faith in Him. Let us also live by faith in Him.
