Working for God

God blesses pure hearts and work

Exo 38-39, 1Cor 3:13 The people gave willingly, and anointed workers gathered and prepared all materials needed for worship. Moses led, the people (finally) followed, and God was pleased. Imagine being there at the unveiling to see the finished “project,” a.k.a. Tabernacle. Each person could stand and think; I was a part of this. The women could look and see the different threads in the garments and the coverings and say I wove the blue or I wove the scarlet threads; not to take glory to themselves but to realize that without their contribution, it would not have happened.

When we do a work, it honors God. We can stand back and be assured that God has noted it. God descended with a cloud to bless the people and their work. He filled the Tabernacle with His glory. In the letter to the Ephesians, Paul noted we are God’s workmanship, “equipped for the work of service, fo the building up the body of Christ.” [Eph 2:10]

Where have you done a work for God and felt, seen, thought, that was my part? Be assured that God has seen and is pleased when He sees a pure heart. In eternity, “each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work.” [1Cor 3:13]

What will your work reveal when you stand before God?
