God the designer of man gave mankind the will to choose how to live in this world. God did this for His own divine purpose. I believe He made it this way so that man can have the option to work as much as he/she can to please God and build to the heavenly reward (1 Corinthians 3:11-14). If God had made man to be robots that automatically do His will, then He would have made the reward to be the same yet we are taught that it will be according to what each one had done while living in the body (2 Corinthians 5:10).
What is God’s work?
God’s work is living to do what He commanded. Such commandments are recorded in full in the Bible. I can highlight a few things that are listed in the Bible as commandments to mankind. Do note that my writing is supports the trinity of God and therefore whatever Jesus said is as good as an instruction from God the Father and that of the Holy Spirit.
In Matthew 28:29 and part of verse 30 Jesus commanded, ‘Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: …’ These are the last two verses of the Gospel of Matthew and they are directing the believer practice and share all that is taught in all previous chapters.
In Matthew 22:37 – 39 Jesus declares, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ According to these verses, loving God and others is the practice of doing God’s work.
Why take the trouble?
There is no point in deceiving one another by compromising what the Bible teaches because such practice will not only be judged but it also does not change the truth. My intention is not to misquote God but at the same time I don’t want to provoke people but to remind people of the truth as it is in God word.
The sad reality is that any option besides that of committing to doing God’s work is not acceptable to God. It’s not easy and none of our works can justify us before God yet God see the heart that is committed to doing His will.
We are called to continuously grow in faith as God is not happy with a person that draws back (Hebrews 10:38). I believe I have grown spiritually and the following preachers, which I also recommend to you, are some of those that have helped me in this journey.
Repeatedly listening to their teachings and contrasting them with the Bible helped me a lot to understand the God we serve and the enemy we fight.
