1 Corinthians 15.58 invites, don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.
This is our mission, the Great Commission. We are to conduct this mission with our whole heart, throwing ourselves into this work, knowing that eternal reward awaits when we face our God and give account for the life we lived on this earth.
Not just reward from God but the reward of eternal life among those who benefited from our work for it is through the work of sharing Jesus with people that people come to eternal life in Christ. Men are not won to God by angels. Men are won to God by the Spirit of God awakening their hearts to God as men share the love of God for them through Jesus Christ the Savior.
We must not hold back any longer. Too many do not know Christ personally and are ruining our society. We cannot afford to cower or be ashamed of Jesus but must boldly identify ourselves as servants of God by serving people and sharing the hope that exists within us. This work must be top of mind, first-priority, receiving our greatest effort even while we work for our sustenance and raise children to know God and obey His commands.
Our vocation, our neighborhood, our family is to be the focus of our occupation which is the helping of people to become disciples of Jesus by teaching them to obey everything He has commanded us even as we ourselves obey Him thoroughly, beginning with our diligence at seeing people become followers of Jesus.
Seeing God’s kingdom come and His will being done on earth as it is in heaven is to be our purpose for today, tomorrow and every day that we remain on earth awaiting the arrival of our departure to heaven.
