#43 Working at the Wrong Work
Continuously updated, this collection of Martha‘s writings is for all in search of true intimacy with Christ.
Yesterday I wrote this to you:
ESV Therefore let us strive to enter the rest.
Isn’t that a contradiction? Do the work to enter the rest?
There is a work to do as God’s child. We think the work is doing and giving and building and going and saying and knowing…
Jesus said to the crowd following Him:
Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you.
One of the first discoveries when you truly follow Jesus is that you are working very hard at all the wrong things. He shocks us with the adjustment to His basic idea about work. This spiritual work is entirely foreign to our busy humanity as well as to our basic laziness.
