Doing Something

In Matt 25:46, Jesus said "Blessed is that servant whom the master when He comes will find so doing."  Basically, what Jesus is saying that when the Master which of course is Himself comes He will finds His servants doing the will of God.  Our lives as Christians are not about the gathering of wealth, possession, fame or family.  It is about doing the will of God.  So the question today is, "What is the will of God?"  I will break it down to three things.  First, doing the great commandment.  You are to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and then you are to love your neighbor as yourself.  You are to have a strong vertical relationship with God that will translate into a strong love for your fellow man.  You will show love in practical ways.  People will see that you love Jesus by the way you love them.  You will love them with an unselfish, no strings type of love.  You will love because you love the Lord.  Secondly, you will do the great commission.  You will go into your world and preach the gospel to all you meet and know.  You will tell others.  You will live your life so well that people will want to know what you have.  The great commission is about telling others by what you do, more than what you say.  The last thing is to be like Jesus.  The old hymn says, "To be like Jesus, all I asked is to be like Him."  Jesus not only told us how to live, He showed us.  Love, accept and forgive others like Jesus and you will touch your world.  So, today be about the master’s business because when He comes and finds you doing what He wants you will be blessed.
