Serve the Lord. Romans 12:11
You may work as a mother or a mechanic, as a student or a surgeon, or as a plumber or a pastor, but when you see that your work is for the Lord, it will give your work new meaning.
God has called you to this work, and in doing it you are serving Him. Other people may not appreciate what you do. They may not reward you for what you do. But if you keep in mind that you are serving Him, it will help you to be fervent in Spirit, because you’re serving the Lord.
It is the Lord you are serving. Jesus Christ is the risen Lord. He is the sovereign Lord. It is really hard for soldiers to follow a general if they feel in their hearts that his campaign will end in failure. The good news for jaded followers of Jesus is that we know He wins. The grave was not the end for Jesus, and it will not be the end for you. Evil did not overcome Him, and though it may have its day, it will not overcome you either.
The end of the world will not be the condemnation of being overrun by evil, it will be the transformation of a new earth, filled with the glory of God as the waters cover the sea. A new humanity drawn from people of every tribe and nation redeemed in Jesus Christ. And a new resurrected life in which sin will be no more, and God Himself will wipe all tears from our eyes.
Knowing that Christ reigns, “be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain” (1 Cor. 15:58).
Where do you see a connection between the reign of Jesus Christ and you being more steadfast, immovable, or abounding in your work?
