Completing the Work
Author requests article critique
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
The wise builder does not set out to build a home by laying a foundation and then become distracted elsewhere, so that the work is abandoned. Likewise, God has chosen tasks for each of us to complete. He asks us to add on to the good that we have been doing: to build on the foundation that He has laid. His specific encouragement to us today is to, ‘not let this ongoing work lay forgotten, but keeping adding to it, until the day of completion. Do not allow apathy, distractions, indifference or fear to hinder the work. Do not allow the enemy to rob you of the final outcome that will be good and pleasing to Me. Persevere and press on wards for I, the Lord God will help you.’
What is the good work we are called to complete? This week the Lord reminded me that I had grown indifferent to a task He gave me. I had let my attentions wander to less important things, when there was still work left incomplete. I am thankful for His gentle reprimand and in repentance, discarded the distraction, so that I could continue to bring my heavenly Father honor in what was the main thing. Distractions rob us of the energy, passion and time that are best invested elsewhere. There is urgency to recognize where we are giving ourselves to lesser things and consider how they can be eliminated, so that we remain faithful to the work God has chosen for us.
