Daily Devotional Day 36

Day 36.  Take Time to Be Holy

May 14, 2020

“Therefore, my beloved, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, because you know that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

I Corinthians 15:58

Read: I Corinthians 15:35-58

Down the road and around the corner a building was being built. It was fun to watch from the time the first dirt was being moved around, the foundation laid, walls built, and the welcome sign displayed. The progress was obvious and the result was a building where there was none before. Witnessing faith is laying a foundation that cannot be seen, and building a relationship which cannot be touched. Faith, “the assurance of things hoped for, and the conviction of things unseen,” is so incredibly important that the “work” of witnessing faith is never in vain. People need to know that Jesus is with them, especially now, this very moment.  God has given you an amazing gift, the gift of your life and the opportunity to live your life in a deep and abiding relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Faith grows when we offer others the same gift that we have been given by God. Think about those who God has placed in and along your path and how they so greatly impacted you with their witness of faith; think about their witness and the zeal they had for the Lord. If their names escape you, their faces will never be forgotten. Because of your witness, your name is etched upon another’s soul; your kind words and outstretched arm has made a profound difference in the life of another; you have strengthened another’s faith just by being there for someone else. You may not be able to remember who you have served, but they remember you with love and thanksgiving. So next time you think nobody is listening, nobody is paying attention, nobody cares; they do because your faith has helped build theirs. The Lord’s work is nothing less than sharing your faith with someone else. You make a difference and the life you lead in the Lord is never in vain.

How are you taking time to be holy today?


Prayer:  Jesus, thank you for the gift of faith. Thank you for the privilege of serving others no matter how hard it may seem to be. Help me to be a faithful witness to somebody today, so they may come to know you even more.  Amen
