LABOURING MORE ABUNDANTLY (2)

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*LABOURING MORE ABUNDANTLY (2)*


*Scripture Treasure.*

1 cor 15:11 *But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.*

*Therefore, whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

There is nothing working that does not have a hard work behind it.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

Behind a working machine is someone at work, and behind a moving car is someone at the wheel.

There is nothing that works perfectly that does not have a sound, spirit minded, diligent, and dedicated worker behind it.

Paul's word in 1 Cor 15:11 tells us a few things more.

Firstly, we work more and harder than each other, and Heaven notices it.

It tells us that when we desire to work hard for God, we can be assured of the grace to do it.

More work more grace

If we are given much grace, much is desired of us, or there is an expectation of us to do more, Luke 12:48.

It tells us that to whom much is given much is desired.

Secondly, Paul admonishes us that He attributed his hard work to the grace given him.

Paul tells us that as much as we work, we must always attribute our hard work to God's grace.

Thirdly, our hard work can define who we are. Hard work is an identity.

Paul tells us that there is nothing working that does not have a hard worker behind it.


*Remorse corner.*

There is no progress when people stand still.


*Call to Word action.*

John 9:4 *l must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

Behind everything working is someone at work making it to work.


*Prayer.*

Lord, help me keep working while it is day, in Jesus name.


Good morning, all, and be blessed as you go today.


God bless you.
