Topic: THE LABOUR OF THE RIGHTEOUS.
Text: Isaiah 3:10,11
10, Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds.
11, Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with them, for what their hands have done shall be done to them.
There are different classes of people from human perspective, man classes people into illiterate and literate, rich and poor, white or black, we also classify by tribes etc, but the maker of all , the almighty God, on has 2 classes for all, THE RIGHTEOUS AND SINNER ( WICKED ).
In the old testament you come across ‘ wicked ‘ most times it connotes ‘ sinner ‘. Irrespective of your tribe, race, educational qualifications, financial status, family background you can only belong to one of these 2 classes in the sight of God.
Let me go straight to our passage today, in v.10 God spoke in clear terms ‘ Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds. ‘ I see God saying look for a righteous man around you, tell him not to worry, things might not be well now, things will soon get well, there is reward for everything he does.
God is committed to the righteous as a good father is committed to his children, he blesses all that the righteous do, he does not allow the righteous to labour in vain. Look at this scripture
Psalm 127:1Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; except the Lord keeps the city, the watchman wakes but in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to take rest late, to eat the bread of [anxious] toil—for He gives [blessings] to His beloved in sleep.
The righteous are the beloved of God, the Lord builds with the righteous, business done in righteousness receives God’s blessing, when God builds with you, you can be sure of success, you cannot labour in vain when God blesses your labour.
In Isaiah 3:11 God pronounced curse upon sinners look at it : Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with them, for what their hands have done shall be done to them. It is does not matter the height a sinner attain by practicing evil, he will crumble one day
A sinner can become righteous, the first step is to accept Jesus as Lord and saviour, confess and forsake your sins, abstain from all appearances of evil. God bless you.
* Lord help to continually live in righteousness.
* Bless my labour with outstanding result.
