October 6, Tuesday Devotion

1 Corinthians 15:58

58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Quick Notes

There are a lot of people who do things for the Lord that are not necessarily of the Lord. We constantly ascribe things to God to justify and rationalize what we already do - that is work for, not of, the Lord. Work of the Lord is bringing reconciliation and redemption back to relationships. It is the co-existence of peace and justice together, and not apart. Ultimately, work of the Lord is the holy encountering the profane and sanctifying or redeeming it.

Quick Questions

Are you more caught up in the Lord or of the Lord?

Quick Prayer

Lord, let me be of you. Amen.
