Honor God In Whatever We Do
"Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together." (John 4:36)
Scripture Focus: John 4:27-54
Not all of us are called to be pastors or missionaries. Some are called to drive trucks, be accountants, manage the affairs of the family at home, serve in the military, work in factories. As long as our work does not violate Scriptural principles, we honor God in whatever we do. Yet, we all have an even higher calling than what occupies us on a daily basis.
The disciples returned from their errand to get food and were surprised to see Jesus speaking to the Samaritan woman. They were more amazed when He told them He already had food. His "food," He said, was to do the will of the Father. Pressing the point, He uses the farming metaphor of sowing and reaping to show that life has far more urgency and purpose than the disciples realize.
The Gospel call to every believer is to be like the sower and the reaper in Jesus' metaphor. He calls us to work for the kingdom of God with the urgency of eternity in mind, taking His light and life to those we interact with, “harvesting the crop for eternal life."
Insight: Thank God for the physical and Spiritual work he gives us to do. What a privilege to share Jesus with people we meet!
