A New Job
When we receive Christ we have a new job that we didn*t have before. He is the most wonderful employer I have ever had. Some of His blessings and rewards begin happening the moment we receive Him and the best of them are eternal. He wants everyone to love Him, serve Him and have His continuing blessing and eternal rewards.
2 Peter 3:9: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
1 John 4:19: We love him, because he first loved us.
1 Corinthians 3:9: For we are labourers together with God: ye are God*s husbandry, ye are God*s building.
Colossians 1:16: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
God*s purposes for creating you are to save you so that you will love Him and work for Him and with Him. We are not saved by working for Him. We are saved TO work for Him.
Ephesians 2:10: For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
I hope and pray that you have received Jesus, begun serving Him and enjoying His blessings and rewards. I have learned that when I drag my feet, the enjoyment stops until I get going again with Him.
