Saturday, February, 27th

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

We began the week talking about “rest” and we conclude it by talking about “work.” The promise land experience of the people of Israel focuses on work before rest, while our promise land experience with Christ focuses on rest before work. You may recall from the book of Joshua this week that Israel has work to do in the promise land. They have completed their conquest of all of Palestine, they are dividing the promise land among the tribes of Israel, and now comes the hard work of driving out the inhabitants that remain, occupying the land, and living according to all the instructions God gave them through Moses. In conjunction with the fulfillment of this work God will bring his promised rest to his people as they live out the fullness of what it means for God to be their God and for them to be His people. For us as God’s people today, Christian living requires hard work. If we are fully engaged in Christian living, we will be fully engaged in hard work.

However, our understanding of hard work must factor in the reality that God in our day is working on us from the inside out through Christ who lives in us through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. Remember what the book of Hebrews said: entering God’s rest means resting from our works. The Christian life does not begin with us getting busy doing work on God’s behalf. The Christian life begins with entering into the rest that Christ offers and then we go forward with him working hard in full reliance on his indwelling presence and power. Here is today’s Scripture again: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.”

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Wrap up the week by writing your own prayer response to God and then bringing it to him as a gift of love, surrender, and thanksgiving.
