1 Chronicles 28:20
20 David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the LORD is finished.
Well the answer is that the work will not be finished until the Lord Christ Jesus returns to raise the dead and the living. Until then, we have much work to do. Over the last several thousand years, mankind, the children of God have done a great deal of work for the Lord. The Holy Bible is the most read, most printed and most purchased book in the history of the world. Sadly, today we see liberal progressives in Christianity trying to undo the scripture, rewrite it, omit some of it, relabel it and make it fit the social narratives of the day.
The reality is the scriptures were not written to be molded to fit anyone’s narrative. The scriptures were written to stand the test of time. This is not the time for Christian’s to sit back and relax, nor is it a time for us to become accepting of these shifts in liberal Christianity. No, this is the time for us to take a stand, to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to always be well versed in the Old Testament. Liberal progressives in churches and denominations around the world want us to forget that Jesus Christ said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” (Matthew 5:17)
If I had a dollar for every time a liberal progressive said that the Gospel of Jesus Christ changed everything, I would be rich. The Gospel did change somethings, but it didn’t change everything, and Jesus made a point of telling us this much. So, there is much work to be done, and Christian’s cannot rest on their laurels waiting for someone else to do the heavy lifting. It was also Jesus who said “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.” (Matthew 7:13-14). We were never promised the path of righteousness would be easy, but we were promised “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:15)
Much left to do
Let’s get busy for the Lord, the work is not done.
