|For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. –Ephesians 2:10
Many of us misunderstand the meaning of living for God. We were all born for a purpose –Jeremiah 1:5, and our lives ought to be lived fulfilling that purpose for which we were called into the world. By nature, all we as human beings do is take. What about giving back?
There is absolutely no use for gaining knowledge, talents, wealth, etc, if we aren’t going to put them to use. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to give back to the world. Minister to people, help others, serve in the Church, give to the needy, etc. Just do something that counts. When God comes to judge the world, he is going to ask you what you have done on earth, and if you say I got this and I got that, he is going to tell you to get out of his sight you selfish servant. (Matthew 25:41)
Brethren be very careful of the way you live your lives. There is nothing more important in this Christian life than serving others and growing the kingdom of Heaven here on earth. Jesus came down to earth and that was all he did. Being Christian is being Christ-like, and being Christ-like is doing what Christ did. What is stopping you from giving back today?
Stay blessed and spread the word.
