APATHY HURTS YOUR WORSHIP

Romans 12:11 

 

Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

 
LESSON

 

It is natural for Christians to slack off in their “diligence” in “serving the Lord,” when they have been Christians for some time. Apollos was a model of someone who maintained “fervent” diligence in his service, as was Paul. They were “aglow with the Spirit.”

The Lord Jesus was constantly employed in filling up the great duties of his life, and the effect of his religion has been to promote industry wherever it has spread both among nations and individuals. An idle man and a Christian are names which do not harmonize. Every Christian has enough to do to occupy all his time; and he whose life is spent in ease and in doing nothing, should doubt altogether his religion. God has assigned us much to accomplish; and he will hold us answerable for the faithful performance of it. It is our boast and glory that we are the servants of the Lord Christ. We are His by right, by consent, and by open avowal. Even in our secular work, if we live up to the spirit of our profession, we are still serving Him.
