In all the busyness and chaos of Easter preparations and follow-up, it can be easy to get lost and disheartened if things don’t go as planned or as well as you’re hoping.

Today, we just wanted to take the time to remind you that, no matter the outcome, the work you’re doing matters. When you’re in the business of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, no time taken or effort given is a waste.

“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58

God Calls Us to Be Faithful

At the end of the day, God calls us to be faithful in our work to spread the gospel, not just to make results. 

Easter won’t be a waste just because you didn’t double your number of visitors or collect hundreds of connection cards. If you’re truly spending your time to spread the joy of Jesus’ resurrection and love the people that come through your church doors, that is enough.

So, no matter how your Easter service turns out, keep your focus and your faith in God. Even if not a single person shows up, dust yourself off and begin His work again. We must be faithful, steadfast workers for the Kingdom of God.

Be Glad that God Has Called You

Remember that it is a joy and a privilege to be used for God’s work. Romans 8:17 says, “Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”

Through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, we are forgiven through our faith in him. We are made children of God and called to share in his suffering and to work for his Kingdom. We can rejoice in the work that he has called us to do knowing that we are saved and that Jesus has defeated death.

There is Work to Be Done

Just like Jesus said in Matthew 9:35, “…The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” Even when it’s hard, even when you’re tired, there is still good work to be done.

Jesus doesn’t say that the harvest is plentiful, but the workload will be light and instantly rewarding. It’s good work, but it’s hard—and you may not always see the fruit of your labor. However, this doesn’t mean that you’re not planting seeds and helping to further the Kingdom.

To Sum it Up

Even if you’re struggling, even if you’re disheartened, remember that the work you are doing matters. We serve a good and faithful God, and no work done for him is wasted.

We’ll leave you with this:

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” – Ephesians 3:20-21

The Work You're Doing Matters.
