Wednesday In The Word-Fellow Workers



Beth Moore tells a story about a neighbor that was diagnosed with a mass on her side which turned out to be cancer. The neighbor was a registered nurse and she and her husband had just had their first child. The couple was not saved but during the trials and tribulation of this dreaded disease both husband and wife came to know Jesus. 

With time at hand the mom decided to prepare her child for her death. She told him that she was too sick to stay on earth because she could not get well here but if she went to heaven to live with Jesus she could be well there and would see him and his daddy one day. 

She told her son all about God and the love of God. The morning of her homecoming the husband knocked on Beth's front door to tell her the news. Beth immediately went over the neighbors home and felt compelled to anoint her body and her surrounding with oil. 

In the meantime everyone was doing what they could to keep the little boy occupied so he would not see the Paramedics taking his mommy out of the room.

As a lady paramedic was walking in the little boy rounded the corner and pulled at her pants. He looked up at her and said, "Are you God? Beth said I will never forget the words of this women....

She leaned down and made eye contact with the little boy and said, "No, but I work for God".

Oh...that so needs to be us as Christians...That should be our mindset.....WE WORK FOR GOD!
  

For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building. 1 Corinthians 3:9

  1. This is beautiful, I need to remember each morning that I work for God, I am a bond servant whose life belongs to him. Gosh if I had that attitude each day I think some of my choices would be so much different
