Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. - Hebrews 13:20-21
While our works are inadequate to earn our way to Heaven, once we know and love the Lord, we want to serve Him. We no longer strive to be good enough, but rest in His grace and work because it’s our heart’s desire. Then we plug into the promise of His provision. My city, Houston, sends out “expatriates” to work in the world’s oilfields. Their companies supply all they need to sustain quality of life and perform the tasks in those remote places. When you work for the Kingdom, God equips you with everything you need to get the job done.
