“Throw yourselves into the work of the Master.” 1Co 15:58 TM
SIMPLY SERVING (4)
Paul writes, “Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God?..If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ” (Gal 1:10 NIV). A true servant of God is content to work quietly in the shadows. They know that in heaven God will openly reward people we've never even heard of—people who taught emotionally disturbed children, cleaned up after the incontinent, nursed AIDS patients, and gave their lives in a thousand unnoticed ways. “Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.” During World War II when England needed to increase its coal production, Winston Churchill called together labor leaders. He asked them to picture in their minds a victory parade which he knew would be held in Piccadilly Circus after the war. First in line would be the sailors who kept the vital sea lanes open. After them would come the soldiers who returned from Dunkirk, then went on to defeat Rommel in Africa. Next would be the pilots who'd driven the Luftwaffe from the skies. Last of all, he said would come a long line of sweat-stained, soot-streaked men in miners' caps. Someone would shout from the crowd, “And where were you during the critical days of our struggle?” And from ten thousand throats would come the answer, “ We were deep in the earth with our face in the coal.” Not all jobs are prominent and glamorous, But those who serve God with their “faces to the coal” play a vital role in fulfilling His purposes in the earth.
