If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken. (Isaiah 1:19-20)
When we obey, we submit. When we submit, we come under authority. Is it the same authority as submitting to man rather than God? Mankind can supply the temporary benefits of this time but they are just “temporary”. It is by far a blessing to receive the full benefits as compensation when working a full time position. However, are we willing to put in a full days work as it relates to the things of God and His kingdom? The reward is nothing compared to that of the temporal compensation of this world. His benefits package is eternal and not everyone has access. When we enter into the contract of salvation, we become permanent staff members of the Kingdom. Our duty is to serve Him and solicit salvation for his glory. Part time work results in part time compensation. We cannot expect the full manifestation of his blessings on a part time “when I feel like” schedule. Today, I challenge you to terminate your part time position in the flesh and work full time in the spirit.
