Whatever You Do, Do It Enthusiastically!
Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ. For the wrongdoer will be paid back for whatever wrong he has done, and there is no favoritism.--------Colossians 3:23-25
I have been in church all my life and throughout all of those years I have found that SERVING the Lord is one of Satan's most fertile areas in which to plant his seeds of DISCORD and DISOBEDIENCE among God's Children. And CROP FAILURE is the outcome.
One of the hardest things to do in the church is to find DEDICATED workers. Those who are more than WILLING to use the gifts that God has given them, to help further His Kingdom. And worse yet, is to find those who are willing to SERVE Him ENTHUSIASTICALLY. You would think that you have asked them to hang the moon. When all you have asked of them is for their HELP in carrying on the WORK of CHRIST.
Christianity is NOT a SPECTATOR SPORT, we are SAVED to SERVE our KING, and NOT to be SERVED. What will happen to God's Church in the FUTURE if we don't get off our seat and SERVE the LORD, NOW? I will tell you that it isn't a pretty picture. God's MAIN MISSION for His churches will die out, and they will become nothing more than SOCIAL clubs, filled with people who have been DECEIVED into believing that it's ok to sit and warm a pew and not get involved, just let SOMEBODY ELSE do it.
The Scripture says that; WHATEVER we do, do it as for the Lord, knowing that we will receive the REWARD of an inheritance from the Lord. Some will make it to Heaven, but when we stand before the Lord to receive our just REWARDS, they will walk away ASHAMED and EMPTY-HANDED, with NOTHING to lay at the feet of our BELOVED SAVIOR. And those that are SERVING for the WRONG reasons, their works will be burned up, when they are put to the test.
As A Child of God, are you SERVING HIM ENTHUSIASTICALLY? Or are you just a SPECTATOR, not even attempting to be the SERVANT, God EXPECTS you to be? Maybe, you have never TRULY given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you would fall into the class of the WRONGDOER, well PAY DAY is coming for you too. The Scripture says that you WILL be paid back for WHATEVER wrong you have done, NOT A REWARD. However YOU can change your classification by; CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for you and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and receive your just REWARD of an inheritance from the Lord. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He's waiting!!!
