1 Corinthians 3:15 (NET) If someone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss. He himself will be saved, but only as through fire.
When Tosin had a dream revealing that she had been building with hay in her ministry work, she was deeply troubled. Recently reading about the Lord judging our works, with those proven by fire and getting burned receiving no reward, she feared her efforts might be in vain. While assured of her salvation, she didn’t want her contributions to the kingdom to be fruitless. Seeking the Lord’s guidance, she quickly recognized that her ministry wasn’t aligned with His pleasure. Her focus had shifted towards healing and gaining personal acclaim, rather than saving souls and making true converts. Her members knew and feared her more than they knew and feared the Lord, and she realized the desire for financial gain had become her primary motivation in ministry.
Choosing to take a retreat, Tosin sought the Lord’s guidance to rectify the misdirection in her ministry.
Like Tosin, many receive warnings from the Lord about their misguided efforts, but some dismiss these warnings and disregard the messengers. The Lord, in His goodness, provides warnings and corrections to steer His servants back on the right path.
As you navigate today, bear in mind that one of the most significant hindrances to acceptable service in God’s kingdom is the infiltration of the love of money.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
