Don’t be a do-nothing Christian for it may turn out that it will prove you are not a Christian at all. When one truly trusts in Christ and realizes what Christ has done for them, the immediate feeling is one of gratitude and a desire to do something for the One who has done so much for them. Without that the question arises whether you have understood the gospel at all. You may be asking, “What’ll I do?” Today’s devotional will help. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
For they themselves report concerning us the kind of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.
“‘How am I to serve God?’ said one to me, the other day. I answered, ‘My dear brother, get at it. “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might.” Don’t come and ask me, for where there is so much to be done, the man is idle who asks, “What am I to do?” Do the first thing that comes to hand’ If a soldier in battle saw that the enemy was winning the day, he would not be hesitating, and asking, ‘Captain, what can I do?’ He would kill the first fellow that came near, and so must you, in a spiritual sense. Do something for Christ.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle PulpitXLIV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1898), p. 394]
