We find many people “interested” in the work of God in various ways but not many are interested in the “will of God!” You can do God’s work yet not do God’s will! God’s work is important but more than that God’s will is supreme! God’s work is a result of God’s will. Unless we understand God’s will we will not be in a position to do God’s work appropriately. All over the world in Christendom we see majority doing God’s work against God’s will! What a tragedy? Whether you are a singer, a musician, a Sunday school teacher, a volunteer, an elder or a pastor, whatever your ministry position maybe – the question is always, are you doing God’s work according to God’s will or your will? Are you doing God’s work to please God or to please yourself? Think seriously, search your heart diligently and check your motives in doing your ministry. God’s work is sacred but when we do it with an ulterior motive then it becomes defiled. Many do ministry to promote themselves or to glorify themselves not God. Trying hard to build their “image” or “kingdom” instead of building the kingdom of God. If we continue to do what we do with a selfish desire then we build something which is of no value. On the day of judgment, all of this straw kind of ministry will be burnt to ashes in the great fire! There are few people who have realised the greatness of doing God’s will than God’s work! One such person is Miriam Booth, daughter of William Booth the founder of the Salvation Army, a beautiful, brilliant, cultured woman, who began her Christian work with great promise and had unusual success. But very soon she fell ill and the disease brought her down to the point of death. A friend visiting her one day told her that it seemed a pity that a woman so capable should be hindered by sickness from doing the Lord’s work. She replied with gentle grace, “It is great to do the Lord’s work, but it is greater to do the Lord’s will.” Yes, doing God’s will is the most honourable thing in the disciple’s life. We must be mature enough to keep the main thing as the main thing! Look at Jesus’ exemplary life which beautifully fulfilled the will of God from the cradle to the cross Hebrews 10:7! Let Him be our example in all that we do for the glory of God. Are you doing God’s work according to God’s will?
