The Work Christians Are To Do

“And in Your majesty ride on victoriously, For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.”(Psalm 45:4 LSB)


The Lord is always working and His people must also be about their Father’s business for this is the example given to us by the Son of God. The Lord has commanded us to go and make disciples and to pray for laborers to join Him in the work of harvesting the souls of men by sharing the gospel and discipling men in their faith. The culmination of this work collectively done by the church across the globe, leads to a greater revelation of truth upon the world, humility of men before men and God, and a more moral, right living planet. The fact that our world seems increasingly anti-God, morally bankrupt, filled with war between men is the direct result of the chruch’s failure to embrace their occupation to work with God in the world to make Him known in the world so that the world will obey Him. We who claim to be reconciled to God through Jesus the Savior have become His church, His body for doing this work of reconciling men to God. Our purpose is to embrace God’s command to make disciples wherever we live using whatever vocation we have chosen to fund our ministry and the ministry of others. Our specific work is among the specific neighborhoods, businesses, and families God has surrounded our lives with but the work is the same for all, share the truth of God’s love in the manner of Jesus, Who came as a servant not a Master, until all men obey Jesus living righteous and holy lives. If we would obey God and have a better world we must engage our mission to make disciples.
