Minister’s Corner: Do what you do for Christ
By: DR. BRIAN DORE’

Sometimes the enemy will perch on our shoulder and whisper in our ear that others are doing better than we are. He will point out the fact that others are advancing while we seem to be moving backward. He will show us others who have more, get more and do more than we do. He will do everything he can to discourage you in your work for the king.
I want to encourage you to do what you do for the Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t do it for the applause of me. Don’t do it for the recognition of others. Don’t do it for the glory. If you do it for these things, you have all the reward you are ever going to get, according to Matthew 6:1-7. Just do what you do for Christ, and for Christ alone. He sees everything you do. One day, if you have lived to obey and serve Him, you will hear Him say, “Well done.” Payday is coming, and I believe it is coming soon.
