Be Faithful for God Remembers

Hebrews 6:7-12

7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God;

8 but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

9 But, beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation, though we speak in this manner.

10 For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end,

12 that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Here we are compared to the earth.

Are we taking in the Spirit, the Word of God and being productive?

Or are we still bearing the sin of an unchanged heart and life?

Like the writer, I am confident that most of us are being changed by the word of God.

By following our Savior Jesus down the narrow path.

But if we are not, if we are unproductive hearers only, be aware that our destination is the same lake of fire.

The same burning that all sinners will suffer.

We cannot fool God.

This is a warning to us.

Then we are encouraged and reminded that God sees and remembers our work for Him.

The things we do to promote our Lord.

Sacrifices we make in love of Jesus' name.

There is no other name that matters, only Jesus.

God does not forget and does reward us for our labor in His ministry.

Finally, the author tells us to not become spiritually lazy or dull.

Instead, we should be diligent in study of the Bible, always learning and putting into practice what we learn.

Being faithful and patient as we wait for Jesus' return, when we will receive the ultimate reward of being with God eternally.
