Topic: Working For Or Walking With God? [13/08/2016]
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. Genesis 5:24. Read: Gen 17:1-5
Working for God might probably not get you anywhere but end you on earth. How? For instance, when you're working for a company for few months without pay, what do you do next? You'll begin to look out for another job that would fetch you money because you're actually working for salary. Invariably, when you're working for God and what you're expecting are not forthcoming, you might be contemplating an alternative to get what you want. Just as working for a company without pay can be frustrating, also, working for God with expectations not forthcoming could be frustrating.
On the other hand, walking with God is enriching and rewarding. It doesn't only end you with God in heaven, it gives you all that pertains to life and godliness. It helps you to live a life of Perfection in this perverse world. It makes God establish His covenant with you and your seeds. Are you working for or walking with God? It's better to walk with God and end in heaven (like Enoch) than to work for God and end on earth.
* Don't render service unto God for bread and butter that perishes, but labour and walk with God because you love Him and His people
