“But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.” – John 5:17 (KJV)
Having a good concept about work motivates us to work to fulfil the Word of God. Our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ are role models to the church and the rest of the world.
Elohim, our Father, instituted work: He worked by recreating the earth in six days and rested on the seventh day. He gave Adam and Eve work to do (Genesis 2:15). He also gave Jesus Christ work to do: first as a carpenter and then the work of soul winning. Therefore, work is part of human existence.
Beloved, having a good concept about work will drive laziness away from your life. Thus, if our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ worked and are still working, then we must also work. Thus, no child of God who has attained the age of working but he or she is idle is fulfilling the Word of God.
Apostle Paul encouraged believers to work so that they can support the work of the ministry—in the church and in society (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
Dear beloved, are you working? Find your gift and talent within you and start cultivating them by acquiring some training – going to school, attending workshops or seminars, going to a vocation or technical school, etc. – and start working. Otherwise, those who are not expected to work are the sick, children, the aged, etc.
Beloved, engage yourself in a job or business so that God can use you to support the weak and vulnerable, and make you a channel of blessings. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!
Prayer Point: My loving Father, thank You for giving me the right concept about work. I cease from any act of laziness today. Please help me to cultivate my gifts and talents to create a career for myself or get employed in another way to support the gospel, the weak, and the vulnerable in society in Jesus’ name. Amen!
