Some days, God’s word is encouraging and uplifting, but he is not only about our warm and fuzzy feelings; he is firm and expects our obedience. God has blessed me with the courage to step out and post a daily message that he reveals to me through the scriptures and the Holy Spirit, but it will all come to nothing if it is not received and acted upon by the reader. There is no such thing as a participation trophy in God’s kingdom, and whatever work I do will be refined by fire. If my work survives the refining fire, it will become a reward, but if it all comes to nothing, I will, at the least, escape with my life.
Here is what I love the most about my mission, some of the seeds I’ve been watering are growing because I’ve seen it manifest in many of my friends. The exciting part is, in turn, they are either planting seeds or watering them. We are coworkers with a common objective to bring new life into the saving knowledge of Jesus. Keep on snatching people from the fire, my friends; the more that make it into the kingdom, the merrier it will be.
each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. 1 Corinthians 3:13
