The Father's Job
“No soldier when in service gets entangled in the enterprises of [civilian]life; his aim is to satisfy and please the one who enlisted him” (2 Timothy 2:5 AMP).
We’re soldiers for Christ and we can’t involve ourselves in civilian affairs and please God at the same time. We must stand as soldiers upon this earth doing our Father’s job. As long as you do your Father’s job, you will be happy. But when you don’t, there will be a lack of warmth and joy in your life.
It doesn’t matter how rich you are, or how many friends you have, you can never really be happy except you do the job of your Father; and that’s bringing God’s Word alive to people around you, touching them with the Word of God and winning souls into His Kingdom. It’s high time we got uncomfortable ignoring sinners around us and coming to church to warm our pews. We have to reach them with the gospel; let’s reach them with the life of God in us! It’s time we got excited and went about our Father’s business! You must make up your mind today, tell yourself, “ I’m going to do my Father’s job and do it well.” Don’t go about it sloppily. The Bible says in Romans 12:11 not to be slothful in business, but fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.
Be hardworking; determine in your heart that you’re going to achieve great things for the Lord. There are things God has spoken to you about that He wants you to do. This is your opportunity to do them. The time is now, there will be no better time.
