Bible Truth Restored

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

MAINTAIN OUR PLEDGE

As the saying goes: “there is no time like the present” to renew our personal commitment to God and our church service with complete dedication and fervour. We need to maintain our pledge and continue the progress - just as the brethren in the days of Nehemiah began to build the crumbling walls of Jerusalem, with a ready, active determination to complete the work set before them. “So we built the wall and the wall was joined up to half its height, for the people had a mind to work” (Neh. 4:6).

The work progressed because the people revealed a willing attitude, an enthusiastic keenness and set their minds to accomplish the task. It was not entered upon half-heartedly or apathetically, but, imitating Nehemiah’s dedication and courageous example, they vigorously persevered, overcoming all opposition and pressure.

As we continue through 2014, we should remember that God has given us a further season of grace in which to labour in His service and we need to “buy up the time,” and make the most of our opportunities. It has been well-stated that individual involvement in church work is an excellent indicator of one’s whole attitude to the Lord and of our preparedness to serve our brothers and sisters. What church responsibilities do we accept? Are we prepared to spend and be spent more for Christ? Hard work develops the character of people - some turn up their sleeves, others turn up their noses, and sadly a number don’t turn up at all! Let us determine to continue this year with a “mind to work” so that when our Lord returns, he will find us with an abundant reserve of oil in our lamps and a sincere welcome on our lips.
