It’s the same with you. When you’ve done everything expected of you, be matter-of-fact and say, “The work is done. What we were told to do, we did.”
–Luke 17:10 MSG
When you were younger you were expected to do what you were told to do by your parents or guardians. Life as an adult hasn’t changed too much according to God’s Word in Luke 17:10. God’s Word is our personal message from Him. It is truth about life on earth, guiding you to your eternal home in Heaven.
Reading the Bible is what we are supposed to do. Jesus tells us in John 16:32-33 (MSG) that we will have trouble: “I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties.
But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” God will accomplish His purposes despite our frailties, our little faith, and trying to do it on our own.
- “In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father” (Matthew 5:16 NLT).
- Always give God the glory in everything you do. He is the reason you are alive and well on planet Earth.
