The work we do for Jesus

September 14, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

It says the following in 1 Corinthians 3:8-15

The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building. Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ.  Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials—gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.

God designed all of us for a purpose and we need to spend time with God in order to reveal this plan that His got for us.  Our rewards in heaven all depend on how much effort we put into the plan that God designed for us. We need to start trusting the voice of God, even when it sounds silly, or crazy. We need to get serious about God, and do what he wants us to do. Even after Jesus went on the cross for OUR sins, God is still going to give us rewards in heaven for what we did for Him on earth. Nothing can be TOO difficult if we ask God for help.

I bet we all want to build our foundation with jewels and gold, but it’s not always easy. They always say in business, the higher the risk, the higher the return on investment.  So for us to get the “good stuff” we need to do the difficult things.


Enjoy the evening. Jesus loves us all!
