NOT A WASTE OF TIME
Have you ever heard the saying, “Hope for the best and be prepared for the worst”? With almost every decision we make in life there is uncertainty about how things will work out. Yet there is one area in our lives in which no matter what happens, we know that in the end it will not have been a waste of time.
Paul spent a year with the Christians living in Corinth, a city known for its dishonesty and greed. After he left, he told them in a follow-up letter not to be discouraged or feel that standing out for Jesus was a waste of time. He promised them that a day is coming when Jesus will return and even death will be swallowed up in victory.
Standing for Jesus may be difficult, discouraging and even dangerous, but it is never pointless or wasted. As we walk with Jesus and share His love, our lives and decisions will be used by Him for His plans! We can be sure of that.
LIVING FOR JESUS CHRIST IS NEVER A WASTE.
