    NOTHING IS USELESS


      June 12, 2017

    Read: 1 Corinthians 15:42–58 | Bible in a Year: Ezra 3–5; John 20
       
    Nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless. 1 Corinthians 15:58 nlt

    In my third year battling discouragement and depression caused by limited mobility and chronic pain, I confided to a friend, “My body’s falling apart. I feel like I have nothing of value to offer God or anyone else.”

    Her hand rested on mine. “Would you say it doesn’t make a difference when I greet you with a smile or listen to you? Would you tell me it’s worthless when I pray for you or offer a kind word?”

    Do what you can with what you have and leave the results to God.
    I settled into my recliner. “Of course not.”

    She frowned. “Then why are you telling yourself those lies? You do all those things for me and for others.”

    I thanked God for reminding me that nothing we do for Him is useless.

    In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul assures us that our bodies may be weak now but they will be “raised in power” (v. 43). Because God promises we’ll be resurrected through Christ, we can trust Him to use every offering, every small effort done for Him, to make a difference in His kingdom (v. 58).

    Even when we’re physically limited, a smile, a word of encouragement, a prayer, or a display of faith during our trial can be used to minister to the diverse and interdependent body of Christ. When we serve the Lord, no job or act of love is too menial to matter.

    Jesus, thank You for valuing us and using us to build up others.

    Do what you can with what you have and leave the results to God.

    INSIGHT:
    What small act of service can you perform today out of love for God?
