Dear Young Christian:
“Go work today in My vineyard” (Matthew 21:28).
As you prepare for school or work, or for whatever sphere of duty may be ahead of you during the day, do you, above all the hustle and bustle, hear the Lord Jesus say, “Go work today in My vineyard?” It’s true we have our duties and obligations, and many necessary things to accomplish before night, but let’s remember amidst it all there is some work to do for Him in His service. He is the “Lord of the harvest” (Luke 10:2), and the work is His. Because it is His work and His vineyard, He calls, He sends, and He directs. In the end He gives each of His own the joy and privilege of being “labourers together” (1 Corinthians 3:9). It may be witnessing in some way; it may be helping and encouraging a fellow Christian; or simply living for His glory in the corner of the vineyard where He has been pleased to place us. There is a wonderful satisfaction at the end of the day, when we can look back knowing that we have worked in His vineyard. He appreciates it, and we receive the blessing.
Your Christian Friend,
We would love to hear from you.
