PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
16th October
Topic: SERVING THE LORD 2
Text: Romans !2:11KJV
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.
In part 1 of this devotional topic, we said when God made man, he made man for Himself, Revelation 4:11 says Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. So God made everything including man for his pleasure. One of the pleasure for which God made us is to serve Him.
Our scriptural text above say somethings about the way we should serve God and the kind that we should not render. The part of the text we want to consider is “Not slothful in business”.
The first point is that service to God is doing God’s business, Jesus confirmed this in Matthew 9:37-38, when he said the harvest (of his business) is plenty but the labourers (workers) are few, Secondly to be slothful means to be lazy, so not slothful in business means not lazy in the service of God.
God our father Himself is not lazy at all, the Psalmist says He does not sleep nor slumber, He watches over all. Also, when Jesus was on earth, the service of God was paramount in his heart, words and deeds, In John 4:34 He said his meat (food) was to do the works of his father and to finish it. In John 9:4 He said he will do the works of his father while it is day because the night time would come when no man can work. If Jesus was not slothful, then why should we?
Beloved, do not be slothful in doing God’s business, as you know a lazy employee will not receive his wages likewise will a lazy, unfaithful and unprofitable servant be cast into outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth(Matthew 25:14-30). God bless you.
PRAYER:
* Father, help me not to be slothful in your business in Jesus Name
