Thursday Daily Devotional By Pastor David Okoye (Ambassadors Diet, 25th May 2017) – You Will Labour

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58

As a Christian, it is important you know that you have been sent on a mission. You are a missionary here on earth. 

Matthew 29:18-19 (MSG) says,

“Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”

You ought to live the missionary life, here on earth. There are two things every Christian must be aware of in living the missionary life

  • God never sends you on a futile mission
  • The mission is labour inclined.

The AMP rendering of our opening text says,

“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose].”

For every mission ground, you step into, you have to labour.

The purpose would not come into fruition when there is no labour. For you to reap the productivity of that ethnos, you have to labour. Refuse to get weary. Throw yourself into the work.

Be like Noah; in building the ark, Noah kept at the work despite the weakness, pain, and discouragement he must have gone through. He refused to be daunted by the stress and demands that came with the mission. He knew there was a purpose to it and that purpose had to be fulfilled.

Choose to stay on the work. Don’t stop until you fulfill the purpose for which you have been sent.

I recognize today that I am a missionary here on earth; therefore I live the missionary life. I keep at the work; I am undeterred by the labour involved.

Matthew 28:18-20, Philippians 3:14
