God does not only save us from something, He saves us for something. Salvation is not only a move to deliver us from going to hell; it's also the platform where we can secure the posterity of many generations. Salvation is not a one-time confession, it's a long-term profession. The bible says we should work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.
Every believer is supposed to be known for a good work. In Eph 2:10, the bible says we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. I feel very sad whenever I meet idle believers, because there's no room for idleness in God's salvation agenda. John 15:16 also makes it clear that God saved us so that we can be fruitful in life. Many believers don't work only because they've not found what they like; well, before you find what you like, do what you find. It's not really about the kind of work you do, but about the glory of God that shows. I've heard of shoemakers and domestic cleaners who built a house with the little they earned. The glory of God can mostly be expressed by working; so find a place to work, even if it is for free.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; LET THE SALVATION OF YOUR SOUL BECOME A JOYFUL THING TO THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU. DO ALL YOU CAN TO DISCOVER THE GOOD WORKS THAT GOD HAS PREPARED FOR YOU, AND WORK IN THEM. Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
