God seeks men with faith to labor for him

“Ye know that your labor is not vain in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 15:58

If our work for God is truly accomplished in his strength, it cannot but bring results. Yet supposing we have been commissioned by him and have labored for eight or ten years without seeing any results at all, can we continue to toil on faithfully, simply because God has commanded it? How many of us are prepared to serve solely because it is God’s command? Or how many work for the sake of seeing fruit?

Since God’s work is eternal in nature, he seeks men with faith to labor for him. It is difficult for us humans who live in time to perceive and understand the work of God, by reason of its eternal character. But it helps to remember that the work of the Lord Jesus was that of the cross—losing for the sake of greater gain. Exactly so is the work of the Christian to be. Today God needs followers who will travail with him to the end, whether or not they see results.
