๐Ÿ‘‘ The Thing Which isย Good

โ€œLet him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needethโ€ย (Ephesiansย 4:28).

On this Labor Day, we talk about work,ย โ€œthe thing which is good.โ€

In this day and age of increasing โ€œgovernment assistance,โ€ people are becoming less and less aware ofย ourย hard work beingย the Lord Jesusโ€™ย preferred method of the source of our incomes. While the physically and mentally disabled are obvious exceptions, the God of the Bible expects all of us to contribute labor in order to provide for ourselves. For children and young adults, even being a student in school is work enough!

Observe the doctrine being communicated in todayโ€™s Scripture. The grace life does not merely teach us toย quit doing bad things, but it also instructs us toย start doing good thingsย (Titusย 2:11,12). Once a thief trusts the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished crosswork as sufficient payment for his sins, then God expects that thief to quit stealing and find a job so he can provide for his needs!

The God of creation calls workย โ€œthe thing which is goodโ€ย (todayโ€™s Scripture). Work isย not something to be avoided; it is something to be embraced for the Lordโ€™s glory!

When the Lord Jesus Christ put the first man, Adam, on earth, that man had a divine commission. Adam was not to simply loaf around and do nothing:ย โ€œAnd the LORD God took the man, and put him in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep itโ€ย (Genesisย 2:15). Adam was to protect that garden, to till its ground, to prepare it for Jesus Christ to come down and dwell in with he and Eve (because of sin, that earthly kingdom over which Jesus Christ will rule isย stillย awaiting fulfillment!).

Saints, may we work to provide for our families (1 Timothy 5:8), and may we work to help those whoย trulyย are needy (todayโ€™s Scripture).ย In the words of God the Holy Spirit,ย thatisย โ€œgood!โ€ source

Verse for 1/21/2018

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. — Galatians 6:7-8
