I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. John 9:4 11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
Our Lord Jesus Christ set a good example for us in serving God.
While He was on earth, He knew He had little time and so didn’t waste it on frivolous activities; rather, He went about doing the will of the Father. John 4:34 says:
“Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.”
Jesus called the work of His father meat. Can you say the same? Don’t just be a bench warmer, get involved in the service of God.
As a teenager, don’t say you have a lot of time ahead of you.
I wish I gave my life to Christ earlier than I did, I would have done more for Him.
Samuel was not yet a teenager when he started serving God under the tutelage of Prophet Eli.
As a child, Jesus parents once took Him to Jerusalem as it was the custom to do so once in a year during the feast of Passover.
Rather than Jesus returning with them, he stayed back in the temple explaining scriptures to the Priests.
If you’re born again and just attending church services like every other person, now is the time to join a department and become fervent in the work of your heavenly Father.
