No soldier when in service gets entangled in the enterprises of [civilian] life; his aim is to satisfy and please the one who enlisted him. And if anyone enters competitive games, he is not crowned unless he competes lawfully (fairly, according to the rules laid down). [It is] the hard-working farmer [who labors to produce] who must be the first partaker of the fruits.” 2 Timothy 2:4-6 AMP

For us to successfully magnify our office we must learn to get rid of all things that will hinder us from pleasing God Almighty Who employed us into this great service. We only please Him by faith as we lay down our lives as a living sacrifice unto God Almighty. We can’t be caught up with worldly affairs and at the same time be caught up with the things of God. We must also learn to endure all the challenges involved for us to be partakers of the fruits as we labor together with our Lord Jesus Christ. Remember there is a reward for our labor. For God Almighty will reward all that are faithful and endure to the end in magnifying their office.

But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].” Hebrews 11:6 AMP

For us all received our reward and the well done compliment from our Lord Jesus Christ, we must learn to endure all challenges as we magnify our office in Christ Jesus. 

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Help me endure as an army employed in Your vineyard in magnifying my office in Christ Jesus, Amen.
