On HIS Work

Hebrews 13:20-21 

May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen

When I read this verse today, I was instantly reminded that the work we’re doing is not ours, but God’s. Anything we’ve accomplished, all we’re working for is not for us. It’s not to enrich our lives or make our name known. We are here to advance the Kingdom of God. And to do so, we must follow the Lord’s call whatever the cost. His plan will be accomplished because HE IS GOD, not because He chose us as his servants. 
May God’s will be done.
