That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.
1 Timothy 4:10 NIV
You may be asking yourself why people of God work hard and struggle to build the kingdom of God. If you haven't given the same burden inside of you, you won't be able to understand why they work hard and continue to struggle for the sake of lost souls.
Paul and the Apostles put their hope in the living God. They preached the Gospel till the day they all went back to the Father. The Gospel has been passed down generation to generation until it reached our generation. The same fire that was in the first Church among the believers it is still burning inside of us; we have the same mission of filling the heaven with souls and emptying the hell.
God keep on encouraging us inside that we may preach even if we will be ignored and mocked. There is someone who will hear our message and eventually give his/her life totally to the Lord. Sometimes the pleasures of this life may trick us to think that we will live forever. It may give us false hope that we will still have time to repent and make things right with God.
This morning, I want you to know that God is calling you to come home. Maybe you have been far away busy with the things of this world. Maybe you forgot totally about God and concentrated on your life; but still God remembers your name and He wants you back to His kingdom.
You are precious in the sight of the Lord. He died for you, and He will continue to call your name until you come back to Him. Don't waste your life with the things of this world that won't last. Put your trust in the living God that you may live forever with Him in the kingdom of the Son of His love.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I surrender my life before You. Help me to live the holy life in Christ Jesus. Give me wisdom to please You in the rest of my days that I may inherit the kingdom of Son of your love. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
