God Will Bless Our Efforts
God sees our hearts, and He will not forget our labor of love. Don’t give up, don’t lose heart, and don’t lose hope! Refuse to be discouraged! Let us commit our plans to God, always trusting Him with everything. “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ,”
– Colossians 3:23-24, ESV.
“We can do nothing without the help of God. The Spirit of God must work with our efforts, and if God’s blessing attends us, we shall be channels of light. The Lord is willing to give us all an experience, which, if improved, will bring us from the lowlands of earth into a close, heavenly relationship with God, and every fiber of selfishness will be uprooted from our natures,”
– Reflecting Christ, page 205.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
– Matthew 28:19
