A friend shared this sermon from John Piper with me yesterday as we discussed waiting and working in the wait. I felt I needed to share it here, the truth of God breathed out in whatever waiting we may be in today. Honoring Christ in the labor, as He labors for us.
Hold firmly to the message of life. Then I can boast in the day of Christ that I didn’t run or labor for nothing.
Philippians 2:16 (HCSB)
I am not sure what your Labor Day holds, what this weekend brought or where this next season of life will lead. Take time to give this a listen or a read-through. Take time to see what you labor in, and whether it is for nothing or for Christ. Sometimes the labor we choose is a labor of wait.
