Today's daily words of encouragement is work; that four letter word; that we have all sneered at in our lives, at one time or another. No one really want to work a job; but without work. there's no livelihood for us to live on. Ninety -nine percent of the worlds people have Jobs; that they work on every day basis, to make a living. When God made this world; meaning heaven and earth, he worked and labored seven days, until he was finished. As brothers and sisters in Christ; we have to earnestly work at a spiritual work, in order to be included in Gods book of life.
Although, we might struggle hard at our physical job; God's Spiritual work is light and joyous, in fact it's not like physical work at all . You see, we work and labor for God reward which is priceless, and no other job can or will give us the benefits that God will reward us with. God has promised all his children a home in heaven with him, and eternal life. He gives us what other jobs can't offer us, great and everlasting benefits and accommodations. We are guaranteed these benefits from God, only if we work out our own soul salvation. It's not a hard job to work; if we're serious about doing the work. God's work is a security blanket for our future with him in heaven.
