March 20 Devotional: Are You a Faithful Worker for Christ



March 20


A Faithful Worker


“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men”

Colossians 3: 23.


The Lord will then wait upon the world no longer when his saints are fit to receive him. As he said to Lot when he came to burn down Sodom, “Haste thee” to Zoar “for I cannot do anything till thou be come thither [out]” (Genesis 19: 20-22). So, concerning the great day of judgment of the world which shall be also the day of blessedness and rest to the people of God. It cannot come until the Lamb’s wife hath made herself ready; until all the saints that belong to glory are ready. And before I go further, what might I say to fasten this reason upon the truly gracious soul? What! Will you yet loiter in the work of your day? Will you still be unwilling to hurry along righteousness? Do you not know that you by so doing defer the coming of thy dearest Lord? Besides, that is the day of his glory, the day when he shall come in the glory of his Father and of the holy angels. And will not you by your diligence help it forwards? Must also the general assembly and church of the first-born wait upon you for their full portions of glory? Will you by doing this endeavor to keep them wrapped up still in the dust of the earth—there to dwell with the worm and corruption? The Lord awaken thee that you may see that your loitering does do this and it does also hinder your own soul of the inheritance prepared for you.
