THEME: Collective Race With An Individual Reward. II.
“Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.”
2 Chronicles 15:7.
2 Timothy 1:8-9.
“Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.”
The opening of this series, indicated that as Christians, our pilgrimage here on earth, is a common one. While our rewards will be based on our individual commitment to the work of the kingdom of God.
Meanwhile, our today’s text charge us as Christians: *”Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord… but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God…according to his own purpose and grace.”* So, shame is one negative feelings that can make one to relent on one’s efforts and commitment to the given assignment.
More so, as we run our race, there will be time, when you staggered and fall, a time when people will mock and abuse you. Beloved, do know that, whatever the affliction that comes your way, the power of God, will sustain you to finish your race, well and strong.
Conclusively, our memory verse expressly encourage us to be strong, diligent and committed till the end. For our work will surely be rewarded. And if we work together, we are bound to achieve great things together. Knowing full well that, our individual reward, will be great from God. May you be strong and diligent in the work of the kingdom of God in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you. *Jesus is coming very soon.* Be prepared.
I will not be put to shame. I will be strong and diligent in my duties.
Father, the good work you have called me into, by grace, I will not fail you. Help me Lord, to remain strong, diligent and committed till the end in Jesus name. Amen.
