“For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.” (Hebrews 6:10 ESV)
When the good news of Jesus gets ahold of you it is meant to radically change how you live. Instead of selfish pursuits we actually turn outward to extend love to others as a reflection of the love we have received in Christ. Now, we don’t do this perfectly. We still war with our flesh that demands it go first, but the spark is there igniting the fire that will burn for others.
To encourage this care more and more we are told that God sees it all. While our works do not save us, God does not disregard them. They don’t earn us relationship but they certainly please the One who extended us the grace that is our basis for love and effort. It is a life of glorifying God and he notices.
Today we can be encouraged that God is paying attention to how the gospel fuels our love for others and the works we do for his name. It is worship to press into our faith in Christ that we might be equipped to love. Let’s worship today.
