In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul explained how because of Jesus' work on the Cross, nothing we do is in vain. Sometimes we hesitate to do good because we don’t see any results.
Paul wrote: “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, you get to stand firm! Don't let ANYTHING move you out of the way or sidetrack you! Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
If we can lead with a Heavenly perspective, we will understand that we might not see the bulk of the results on this side of the earth. When we remember that Jesus already won the battle, it affects how we live right now! It gives us perspective to look forward!
Don’t let discouragement over an apparent lack of results keep you from working hard for the long haul. Seize the opportunity to love people, and show patience and grace toward them. That's an investment in the eternal part of YOUR life and in the eternal part of THEIR life! Trust the process that God promises!
You read the end of the book. God wins & you're on His side! -Scott@SosRadio.net
