What are you doing for God in your daily life? Are you doing Kingdom work or is it just church work?
Kingdom work is acts done that result in the growth of the Kingdom of God. Your acts benefit the Kingdom if you are spreading the Good News, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Are your acts winning souls to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ?
Church work consist of acts that only benefit the physical requirements in a church. Many people today are holding several different roles in church and believe that they are doing work that is pleasing to God. They may be very busy doing this and that and going here and there, but their acts do not bless God unless they are impacting lives for Christ.
James 1:27 tells us that “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
Christian, if you are not committing your days to serving God by serving others, then you need to re-examine your life purpose. The Bible makes it very clear that God is more worried about the spiritual than the physical. God has blessed us in so many ways that we need to share those blessings with others.
Our world is full of sin and lost people that are in need of Jesus. Church work will not show them Jesus. Church work will not bring them to following Jesus and surrendering their life to him.
It is only by doing Kingdom work and loving people to Jesus that will bring sinners to the foot of the cross. If we were to live our life and only do church work, then that would have the same effect on the world as if Jesus had only came to earth and did busy work and did not die on Calvary’s cross and raise from the dead.
In Matthew 28, Jesus says,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Jesus said “GO and Tell”. He did not say “DO”. We have to go to our neighbors, loved ones, friends, enemies, co-workers, and others and tell the about Jesus and what He has done for you and what He can do for them.
We have to love people to Jesus. You have to show them that you love them just like Jesus does. And that your care for them just as Jesus does.
LORD I pray that you will help use to live for You and let Your Son live through us each and every day of our lives. LORD teach us how to love like You love. Teach use to live like You live. Give us a compassion for others like you have. Grieve our hearts for what grieves Yours. Be our guide. Amen.
Go make an impact for God’s Kingdom today and everyday.
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35
