Looking at God's World

Beyond the work

The past few days I have written things of a different nature. They’ve been more about living life for Christ and not just about the things of our work together. I did this for two reasons.

First, I was away from work recovering from knee surgery, and it gave me time to think about other things.

Second, I think it’s important that while we talk about our work, we also talk about the reason for our work.

We Baptists have become guilty at times of becoming too busy for our own spiritual good. Jesus knew better. He only had a three-year ministry; and while He worked hard to teach and prepare people for life in a truly new world, He always took time to pray and rekindle His own relationship with the Father.

Let’s keep alive His work and His way of working, with our spirits ever turned to the Spirit behind all things.
