We need to work while it is day. We need to represent Jesus well on this earth. Ephesians 2:10 states, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
Many of us are gifted in many different areas. We need to use our gifts and talents to uplift the kingdom of God and to make life better for someone else. Ephesians 6:8 says, "Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free." We can make a difference wherever we are for the Lord. We must do what the Bible says in Philippians3:13-14. This scripture states, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
Whether our acts of kindness are big or small, let us vow to help others on a regular basis as we go along life's journey. Matthew 25:45 declares, "Then shall he answer them saying, "Verily I say unto you, In as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me." Let us walk and talk as it becomes saints. We should remember Ephesians 5:4, "Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks."
Let us go on to possess the land. Taking our eyes off ourselves and putting them on Christ, let us do those things that would please him. For in doing such things, not only will we help others but we will help ourselves as well.
Don't forget that everyone is going through something or has been through something. Let us encourage ourselves in the word of God. Hebrews10:24 says, "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works."
You will be amazed how much better and happier you will feel when you help and encourage someone else. Mark 6:35 says, "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it."
Therefore let us vow not to pass this way without doing something good for someone else as we go along.
