Revelation 2:2 (NET) ‘I know your works as well as your labor and steadfast endurance, and that you cannot tolerate evil. You have even put to the tests those who refer to themselves as apostles (but are not), and have discovered that they are false.
Many of the missionaries that went to preach the gospel in Terna’s village were professionals in the city. They would plan their vacations together and use the time for mission work. Many of them were medical doctors, lawyers, accountants, some engineers, etc.
When their colleagues would plan vacation trips to some of the most luxurious international destinations, they would spend their vacation time, money, and skills for the furtherance of the gospel in some place where there is still spiritual darkness. They did this because their hearts were fixed on the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Many of them did not know the extent of the reward that was being stored up for them in heaven.
The word of the Lord for someone today is ‘I know your works, your labor, and your patience’. You may have forgotten some of your labor in the kingdom, but Jesus has not forgotten, and your reward has been stored up for you. Your reward is eternal. It will not only manifest in this life but will manifest for all eternity.
The wisest thing any Christian can do is to sow his resources for the advancement of the kingdom of God here on earth. This is how to store up eternal treasure (Mat 6:20).
Go into today remembering that God is not unjust to forget your labor of love (see Heb 6:10).
Prayer: Thank God for the privilege to labor in His kingdom.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
