Your Efforts For His Kingdom Are Important

Your Individual Efforts Are Important To Jesus and His Kingdom

"Keep about your work -- preach the Word, share your testimony, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry." "Do not flinch because the lion roars; do not stop to stone the devil’s dogs; don't even stop to bark back at the dogs; do not fool away your time chasing the world’s rabbits. Do your work. Let liars lie, let sectarians quarrel, let critics malign, let enemies lay blame on you, let the devil do his nastiest; but see to it nothing distract you from fulfilling, with joy, the work that God has selected for you. He has not commanded you to be admired or esteemed. He has not commanded you to get rich. He has never bidden you to defend your character. He has not set you at work to contradict falsehoods about yourself which Satan’s or God’s servants may start. He has not sent you to track down and correct every rumor that threatens your reputation. Don't develope an offended spirit. If you become occupied with these things, you will do nothing else; you will be at work for yourself and not for the Lord. Keep at your work. Let your aim be as steady as a rock. You may be assaulted, wronged, insulted, slandered, wounded and rejected, misunderstood, or assigned impure motives; you may be abused by foes, forsaken by friends, and despised and rejected of men. All of these things befell our LORD Jesus. But do as He did, see to it with steadfast determination, with unfaltering zeal, that you pursue the great purpose of your life and object of your being until at last you can say, “I have finished the work which Thou gavest me to do."…...Ed
