DAY 12 WEDNESDAY: FEBRUARY 2020

YOUR GOSPEL LABOR CANNOT BE IN VAIN!

And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life (Matthew 19:29).

Your labor for the propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ cannot be in vain in life. The more a Christian burns his life and energy for the gospel of Jesus Christ, the greater his glory becomes glary in life. The Bible says in the opening text that everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that his gospel labor for the sake of the kingdom of God can never be in vain in life. There is a great reward awaiting a Christian for his gospel labor in the Lord in life forever.

When a Christian is involved in soul-wining, his star will always shine forth because of the glory of God that covers him in life. That is why the Bible says in Isaiah 52:7, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns.” Therefore, the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace, light and glad tidings into the life of a Christian. Soul-winning brightens and establishes one’s feet upon God’s mountain in life forever.

Of course, any Christian who labors fervently for the gospel of Jesus Christ will surely be rewarded with the crown of life when the Lord will appear with his holy angels and heavenly host. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Timothy 4:8, “Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” In fact, the crown of righteousness is awaiting all those who diligently proclaim the gospel of the Lord, Jesus Christ both here and hereafter in life forever.

Daily Tip: Your labor for the gospel of Jesus Christ can never be in vain because God knows how to reward His children in life forever. Shalom!
