When an employer hires you do a job, you are expected to do certain things. In other words, you are given responsibilities that must be completed on a daily basis. If for some reason you choose to neglect any responsibilities given, then you would not be doing your best and this would mean that your employer could have reasons for your dismissal.
We as Christians are told to labor while there is time. We all know that there will come a day when this will all be over, and we can no longer labor, so the time to labor is now.
We are co-laborers with Christ, which means that as we work, we don’t work alone, the Lord Jesus Christ works with us to accomplish whatever task he has laid before us.
The Bible speaks of the harvest being plentiful, but that the Laborers are few; then we are commissioned to go into the harvest fields.
As we walk daily into the fields, we are to look for opportunities to be witnesses. We cannot take our responsibilities lightly. We want the Lord to be pleased with whatever we do for his namesake.
Have you ever tried to do a job in the dark? It’s impossible to accomplish your work if there is complete darkness. So the key here is to accomplish our assignment before darkness comes.
The Bible tell us that there will be a taking away of the Saints when Christ return, there will no longer be any time to be Laborers, all what we have been asked to do will come to an end, and the one who we have worked for will look on all the assignments that we have been given.
I pray that we will accomplish our assignments to the best of our abilities, to hear the words, “well done thy good and faithful servant, enter in.”
