The Grace of Christ be with you!

As a society we are often taught to judge the value of our work by its results. Results, however, are not always immediately evident. A gardener, for example, must be willing to wait for the seeds that she has planted to take root before she will begin to see the results of her work. Even then, she must be patient and not give up when the plant is small and immature. How, then, does the church evaluate its work in spreading the gospel?

  • The number of sermons preached?

  • The number of people “saved?”

  • The amount of money given?

  • The size of the church building?

  • The approval of the congregation?

  • Faith in Christ & service in his name?

In truth, while churches like to think linearly, God often works in ways where cause and effect are not always evident to us. Ultimately, we may look to the harvest as a sign of God’s blessing but that harvest may come in ways we don’t see directly or at a time and place we did not anticipate.

Blessings, Will
