Active for God
No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open. Therefore, consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have, will be taken from them. Luke 8:16-18
Dormant disciples lose the Lord’s favor and are a dim reflection of what they were and what they could have become. However, those who are active for God burn brightly for Him. There is no shame of their service in the Kingdom of Heaven, only the desire to remain faithful stewards of God’s blessings. In their homes, their light of love and forgiveness outshines the dark side of selfish agendas and angry reactions. Those who are active for God at their work support others in their work.
Are you active for God, or have the agendas of others consumed your activities? Inactivity in the eternal is the outcome of overactivity in the temporal. Yes, we are wise to guard our calendars from overcommitting ourselves to good causes, but not to God’s best. Do our children have to be constantly on the go, or can they learn to do one thing extremely well for Christ? Yes, be active for Jesus by engaging everyone, everyday with encouraging words and kind deeds. Be an extravagant giver!
You see that a person is considered righteous by what he or she does, and not by faith alone. James 2:24
Have you dedicated your talents, gifts and abilities to the Almighty? When you lay your life at the altar of God, the fire of the Holy Spirit falls fresh on your faith. Like a bonfire of bold belief, the world takes notice when your life, ignited by the Lord, burns brightly. Your platform at work is a natural place to express God’s supernatural grace in your relations with coworkers. Your faith in Christ is not to be concealed, but revealed by your righteous acts and your life-giving words.
Lastly, listen intently during your intimate times with the Lord. Do what He says and do it quickly. Obedience delayed is disobedience. He takes from inactive and indifferent followers and gives in abundance to active and engaged followers. The Holy Spirit directs moving objects, so move under His leadership. Adjust as you go, and watch the Lord use you as a loving light for Him!
The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. Psalm 19:8
