A Workman that is not Ashamed

img_5318

For some time now, I have been looking over this text.

I began Tom look st Daniel and how no reproach could be for us against him in any thing that he did. He was a workman for God that did not need to be ashamed in nothing that he did.

Then I looked at myself, and how I kept my home and how I sometimes did this in such a lack-luster, half-hearted way. Nothing suggested that I was a work an that didn’t need to be ashamed of what I was doing.

You see, the thing is, when we knowGod’s willfor us, no matter what we do, we will understand that we are doing it all for God’s glory.

I am trying to let this sink in.

When I am home and managing my home, it is all for God’s glory and how I keep the affairs of my home shouldn’t be something that I am ashamed of. The way I dress, the food I eat, the movies I watch, the conversations that I have, should be nothing that I am ashamed of.

For a while now, I have been fighting to get a routine going that allows me to effectively homeschool and manage everything else that I have to do. I found myself exhausted and wishing I had a few more hours in the day and a lot more energy to accomplish all that I needed to do.

Have you also felt this way?

Have you even wondered how you would be able to do it all?

These questions have been on my mind for such a long time and so has 2 Timothy 2:15.

…a workman that needeth not to be ashamed…..

“When I am doing God’s will for my life, nothing that I do will be a source of shame.”

“What I am doing in my everyday life, is as much for God, as is preaching and ministering publicly.”

No matter the work that we find ourselves doing, when we allow Godto lead us ans when we do everything for God and unto God then every affair of our life will fall into place. We wouldn’t need to be scrambling to get our houses cleaned up when we hear someone’s at the door, we won’t be bribing our children to behave when we are out in public. If we are doing everything to God, even if our house isn’t picture perfect, we won’t be ashamed. If our children’s behaviour is challenging and we are out and are met with disapproving stares and remarks, we won’t be ashamed if we know that we have done everything for God.

Let us study God’s word and know who God is and what He wants for our lives. Then, we will truly be workmen that do not need to be ashamed.

The Love of Christ

img_5020

Ephesians 3: 17-21
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Knowing the love of Christ passeth all the knowledge a person can ever attain to in this world. Have you thought about the great minds of the world- men and women with PHDs in physics and mathematics; people whose knowledge in science is so great that they are able to make tremendous medical advancements. I cannot hold a candle to them in terms of intelligence. 

But the Bible tells us, that though these people are extremely intelligent and have all knowledge, the humblest and simplest human beings have the ability to comprehend something that surpasses all the knowledge that these intelligent men and women have.

Knowing the love of Christ passeth all knowledge.

This causes me to stand in awe.

The highest knowledge is not to be found in the world, but it comes when we know what Christ has done for humanity.
