Present & Pleased Devotional DAY THIRTYSEVEN

It’s day 37! I hope your excitement is growing for what God wants to do through you, His church and through Central with each passing day of this fast. Just the thought of our church family fasting together for now 37 days just fires me up and I hope it does the same for you!

Speaking of being fired up these verses from 1 Corinthians have me fired up!

1 Corinthians 15:55-58, “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.”

We KNOW death is DEFEATED! We KNOW we have ETERNAL LIFE through a resurrected Jesus Christ! So Central family in the coming weeks, months, years, let’s stand firm! Let’s be unshakable! Let’s work hard and serve hard knowing that everything we do counts forever! Did you catch that? Everything we do for Jesus MATTERS! It counts FOREVER!

It doesn’t matter if you get the praise or the encouragement; sometimes you will and sometimes you won’t. But resurrection means that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

The same commitment we have brought to fasting for 40 days is the same commitment God is calling us to daily! So don’t waver, be STRONG and IMMOVABLE. Don’t quit!

Hebrews 6:10, “For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers.”

Central Family, let’s move into this new season with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind! The Lord will remember our labor of love at the resurrection!
