Diligent for All of Our Days

God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, in order to make your hope sure. – (Hebrews 6:10-11)

 

God is fair and He notices what we do in love as His representatives, even when no one else does. He calls us to love others just as He has loved us, and when we do so, we are honoring Him. Every act of help, encouragement, and kindness, is seen by our Heavenly Father. Though we are not saved by what we do, our actions are expressions of the hope to which we hold. Let us not become weary in doing good… (Galatians 6:9)

 

Do not grow weary,Diligent for All of Our Days

in doing what’s right;

do as the Lord asks,

and fight the good fight.

For our God, He sees,

each act in love done;

He sees how we help,

our great Holy One.

Press on in the faith,

stay true to the Lord;

our hope is assured,

through Him we adore.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You see and know all that we do unto You. Thank You that it matters not who knows in the here and now, as the only reward that matters is eternal. Thank You that our hope is secured in You. Thank You for the privilege of being Your representatives to the world. Forgive us for when we fail to represent You well, and help us to honor You with our every word, thought and deed. Teach us to trust You more, so that we may be an extension of Your help and Your hope to all those who are around us. Help us to be diligent for all of our days, until at last we see Your face. Lead us to love well, just as You so perfectly love each of us. May many come into a saving relationship with You as we work, love and help unto You. Be glorified, O God, as we seek to serve diligently all of our days. Amen.
