Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 8 August 2022 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: Your Labour In God Is Not In Vain
TOPIC: Your Labour In God Is Not In Vain (Seeds Of Destiny 8 August 2022)
SCRIPTURE: 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.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your service in the Kingdom of God is not a waste.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that every labour for God has rewards. God is not a user of men but a Rewarder of men.
1 Corinthians 15:58 says,
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.
This means, your prayer labour, giving labour, or soul winning labour is not in vain in the Lord.
The New Living Translation of the Bible puts 1 Corinthians 15:58 this way:
So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
Look at how the Amplified Bible Version renders it:
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].
Now, this is how the Good News Translation renders the same Scripture:
So then, my dear friends, stand firm and steady. Keep busy always in your work for the Lord, since you know that nothing you do in the Lord’s service is ever useless.
Beloved, your service in the Kingdom of God is not a waste. Your fasting, prayer, evangelism, giving, or any other form of service in the Kingdom of God is not in vain. There is nothing you do for God that is useless.
Remember this: Your service in the Kingdom of God is not a waste.
- Always remind yourself that your labour in God is not in vain.
- Make up your mind to be committed to God and to His Kingdom.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for assuring me that my labour in the Kingdom is not in vain. I ask for the grace for greater commitment in Your service, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
