Can Trusting God Make You Lazy???
Before you think me a heretic please hear me out! This is a question I have been pondering for the last few weeks. Let me explain. I know that without the Lord I can do nothing. (Jn.15) I know we are utterly dependent and totally at God’s mercy. With that said, He has called us to do our part!
As a pastor, I prepare messages to be delivered to the Church or some other group. It is possible be lazy in preparation and just ask God to move?
The same question can be asked of anyone that does anything for the Lord in His Kingdom. Is it possible for the Church to get lax in preparation and in service and say we are asking God to move?
Again, I have been asking myself this question as it relates to my work. So, I thought I would ask you. Is it possible to over-spiritualize something and allow yourself to be lazy?
I think it is. God has called us to give Him our best offering. We are to pour our lives out to Him as a drink offering. He said, “Whatever your hands find to do, do …”??? __________________ “Heartily as unto the Lord.”
God expects us to give Him our best. When it comes to the Church and serving the saints we should be at our maximum ability. Let’s not be lazy and blame it on God. I think the best plan is to work like it all depends on you and pray like it all depends on God. Lives, souls, families, eternity, and the Church hang in the balance.
Love to hear your thoughts.
Just a question.
P.S. I was on vacation last week and I appreciate too the love and help on getting the word out on TBN interview.
