Thought for the week by pastor Diana Rutherford

by Struthers Cumbernauld


For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shown toward His name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

Hebrews 6:10 KJ21

 

A nice verse for a Monday morning after a tiring weekend. May we take refuge in the fact that whatever we have done this weekend for God has been noticed by Him and indeed will not be forgotten.

 

Whether we have been involved in 'important' work like preaching and saving souls, or 'unimportant' work like opening the door to folks and giving out hymn books, we read 'He will not forget your work.' Think of all the times you've pushed yourself to attend a service, smile at someone when you're tired, given a helping hand to another or sang lustily when you would rather be quiet - He has noticed your work and will not forget. It must mount up to a fair bit for some of us who work tirelessly for most of the weekend in the church! There is, I think, one thing that pleases Him more and that is when it becomes a labour of love. We don't attend church for brownie points or turn over the weeds in the church garden to win favour with others, but because of our love for Christ we do these things, to the honour of His name and because we love seeing the church thrive. Do all with a willing heart and a joyful spirit.

 

Remember He will not forget...

 

'"And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.”'

Matthew 10:42
