Scripture Reading from Hebrews 11:32–40  Meme Wang Schweig

And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets– who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, were made strong out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. Women received back their dead by resurrection. Some were tortured, refusing to accept release, so that they might rise again to a better life. Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were killed with the sword. They went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, afflicted, mistreated– of whom the world was not worthy–wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.

A friend once asked me in college, “Why do you want to go into the ministry?” I remember replying, “Because I want to see God at work every day.” Looking back, I recognize that I was saying something both correct and incorrect. I was correct because I have seen God work in people’s lives (including my own) every day—or at least those days that I am paying attention. But I was also incorrect to think that anyone needs to be in full-time ministry to see that. In John 5:17 Jesus says, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.” Psalm 121:4 teaches us that God never sleeps. When we can’t see God working, it’s not because He’s taking a break! He is always at work in our lives to bring about His good will and to mold us into the character of His Son. When we pay attention, we see the work of God in us and around us every single day, even in the seemingly mundane. Don’t miss it! Allow the Holy Spirit to keep your eyes open for God’s work, and then get ready to rejoice in what you abundantly receive.

 

For His glory,
