1 Corinthians: Chapter 15 verse 58.
my dear brothers,
Let nothing move you.
Always give yourselves fully
to the work of The Lord,
because you know
that your labour in The Lord
is not in vain.
Our labour in The Lord is definitely not in vain.
He sees all the things that we do for Him.
Everything is recorded of our works.
So today maybe we could do something nice for The Lord Jesus.
From the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
So what then is our labour in The Lord? I believe it is mostly to keep the Ten Commandments that were given all those years ago to Moses. Well, some people think that we do not need to read the Old Testament in the Bible but we do need to heed what it says.
If you have never read the Old Testament feel free to give it a go.
You may be surprised and learn something new each day. You only need to read a bit each day, it’s no good just reading it if you cannot digest what it is saying and just reading for the sake of saying that you have read it. Take your time and just read a few verses at a time so that you can understand more fully what those verses really mean. There is no hurry and just a few minutes at the same time each day will make a lot of difference.
So to do something nice today – would be perhaps to get up and go for a walk and say ‘Hello’ to someone. Or to visit someone you know who has not been able to go out for a while. We can take a little gift, perhaps a posy of Flowers, a packet of Biscuits to stay and have a cuppa with them. If you have made extra cake or cakes, someone may appreciate your visit if you take some to them.
We don’t always have to stay and talk – just deliver your gift to them at the door and say * God Bless * to them.
That I believe – is also working or doing something for the Lord Jesus.
We can’t all be in the limelight doing great things but I am sure that The Lord acknowledges our efforts to help our families and friends.
One of the Commands is to Love our Neighbours as ourselves…….a bit difficult sometimes but never the less it is a Commandment that we should think about…..well you may ask who is my neighbour? Just the normal people we meet each and every day, I think that they are our neighbours in this world.
* May God Bless Us Today
as We Stand Firm
to do the Work of The Lord *
