Reward in Jesus

REWARD FOR YOUR WORK!

“For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward HIS name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister  (Hebrews 6:10)”.

Everything you do or sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel isn’t only recorded  (Malachi 3:16), the Lord also rewards you for it. So, you can imagine my joy decades ago, when the Lord showed me our theme verse. I had been told I was wasting my time; I had been told I was being foolish for preaching the Gospel and holding crusades in remote towns and cities as well as villages. I wondered if God really cared about what I was doing, but then I saw this verse and wept for joy. I praised, screamed, worshipped and made a jig for joy.

There’re times you’re about to do the Lord’s work and there seems to be persecutions from all angles. And then it’s as though you’re wasting your time, and wasting your life; at such time, always remember that God isn’t unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love. He’ll reward you for all that you do, and have done, in the propagation of the Gospel. He knows and will  reward you for all your prayers for souls to be saved, your financial contributions to the spread of the Gospel, your personal evangelical efforts to win souls to Christ, and all your sacrifices.

What sacrifices have you made for Christ and the Gospel? It could your time, money, family, friends and relationships you gave up, whatever it is, God hasn’t forgotten. Your blessing isn’t deferred until you get to heaven. It begins here on earth: “….VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE’S NO MAN THAT HATH LEFT HOUSE, OR BRETHREN, OR SISTERS, OR FATHER, OR MOTHER, OR WIFE, OR CHILDREN, OR LANDS, FOR MY SAKE, AND THE GOSPEL’S, BUT HE SHALL RECEIVE AN HUNDREDFORLD NOW IN THIS TIME, HOUSES, AND BRETHREN, AND SISTERS, AND MOTHERS, AND CHILDREN, AND LANDS, WITH PERSECUTIONS; AND IN THE WORLD TO COME ETERNAL LIFE…” (Mark 10:29-31).

Your reward isn’t far ahead; it’s closer than you think; be confidently assured that He’ll reward you in due time. Whatever you’re doing for the Lord, keep at it. You’re  never a fool for your devotion to Christ. Others may call you so, but not God. So, keep riding on with the Lord, spreading His glory in your world, and in the city and regions beyond.

“LET’S PRAY”

I thank you blessed Lord, for the privilege and opportunity to participate in the propagation of the Gospel. I’m even more overjoyed knowing that all my sacrifices and services, in and for the kingdom, are not in vain! I fan aflame my commitment, passion, devotion, contributions and efforts, towards the expansion of your kingdom, In JESUS NAME- AMEN.
