Everyone Has a Job to Do By Brenda Drake

It seems this is a repeat poem.  It is still very true, and perhaps more needed that before.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

       There is a time when we just have to put down our baby toys and pick up the shovel and get to work.  This is true in real life and in the spiritual sense too.  It is sad to say but I have seen some baby Christians who put some so called mature Christians to shame. They have rolled up their sleeves and are pushing back the evil ones lines; one prayer, one testimony, and one good deed at a time.

Everyone Has a Job to Do

Everyone has a job to do, after accepting God’s Son.
There are many people to tell, and so much to be done.
You do not need to look off afar;
Listen to the Holy Spirit, who lives within,
And your ministry begins.
Perhaps your life is confined and you cannot get away,
But you have opportunity and the time to pray.
You can reach across the miles; there is no limit to prayer’s touch.
There is no reason to be dry and useless, you can accomplish so much.
Perhaps you feel you are not witty, or you are difficult to know.
However, if you allow the Word to drop like nuggets of gold;
Its wisdom draws seeking hearts unto me
Your life can shine more than you perceive
Perhaps you are not as comely as another close by.
But your beauty is evident… I see inside.
I see the lovely smile that draws people’s gaze.
At the value of your testimony you would stand amazed.
Perhaps you do not believe this word could apply to you
And you still think there isn’t anything you can do.
You have the ability,
To resist the lies the evil one whispers to thee.
Even now if you hear and you choose to believe it
You will cause to God’s Kingdom great benefit

Lord allow me to be used to draw another to the cross.  Holy Spirit, lead and guide my every step.  My Lord You are the Word that dwells within and the good news I share with others.
