TOPIC: Your Labour is Not in Vain
SCRIPTURE READING: 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).
ONE-YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: Hebrews 12:1-13; Ezekiel 11-12
TWO-YEAR BIBLE PLAN: John 12:12-19; 1 Chronicles 15
FURTHER STUDY: Revelation 22:12, Colossians 3:23-24, Isaiah 40:10
The Bible says in Proverbs 14:23 that there’s profit in all labour. Everything you do or sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel is recorded (Malachi 3:16), and the Lord also rewards you for it. This gave me immense joy decades ago when the Lord showed me that He’s not unrighteous to forget my work or labour of love.
I had been told I was wasting my time and my life for preaching the Gospel and holding crusades in remote villages. But then I saw our opening verse and wept for joy. I praised, screamed, and worshipped the Lord.
There’re times you’re about the Lord’s work and there seem to be persecutions from all angles. And it’s as though you’re wasting your time and wasting your life; at such times, 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’ll 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.
Remember the words of Jesus: “…Verily I say unto you, There is 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 hundredfold 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 10:29-30). Your blessing isn’t deferred until you get to heaven; it begins here on earth.
Whatever you’re doing for the Lord, keep at it. Keep spreading His Word. Keep spreading His righteousness. Keep impacting your world with His glory. Remain steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58).
PRAYER: Dear Father, my heart is filled with joy to know that my labour and sacrifices in and for the Kingdom are not in vain! I remain steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that there’s a great reward for my labour in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this prayer.
I come to you, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with you. I ask you to forgive me for all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness, and please keep me clean today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in my heart that God raised me,
Thank you for saying that prayer. You are in CHRIST now. Old things have passed away. HALLELUJAHRhapsody Of Realities Devotional, October 19, 2023
