More Then What It Seems

1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJV)- Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

*Labor Day is a holiday that allows most people to enjoy a day off work. It also initiates the idea that summer is coming to an end, and that fall is on its way. It can be a day of lounging, taking off from the usual hussle and bussle of life, and/or enjoying friends and family. Life offers many opportunities for you to take a break and chill, which is fine. However, there are no days off when it comes to being a part of God's kingdom and carrying out His will. We are expected to represent Him to the fullest, seek opportunities that He provides to reach the lost, and pray without ceasing. We are also encouraged to be aware of evil, distractions, and think beyond ourselves in order to be open to His instructions. Therefore, enjoy your time to relax, but don't let your guard down. There is much to edify within ourselves, plenty to seek in order to receive all God has for you, and many to reach as we come to not just a close of a season, but a close in time when we no longer have to be bothered with the cares of this world. Don't just go through life as instructed or insinuated by a holiday; Live it to the fullest by impacting, reacting, and being on one accord with God's will and instructions to make the most out of life. We have more to look forward to then just a holiday, and I am so ready for it as I hope you are...
