Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"The Labor of Love"
"So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her."
Love is on the menu for Breakfast this morning.
Oh how sweet and joyful Labor is when it is seasoned with Love! "Seven years is like a few days."
As it was with Jacob for Rachel - so it is for the Warrior who is in love with their Commander Jesus!
Whatever labor we employ is bathed in our love for our King and Commander Jesus. In fact we are not reluctant, but Eager to labor for Him "Because we are in love with Him. Whatever we do in Word or Deed, we do as if we are doing it personally For Jesus, and To Jesus. (Col.3:17 and 23).
We Love Him BECAUSE He First Loved us! (1John 4:19).
Our Love for our King is fueled by His Labor of Love for us: Leaving His Throne in Heaven to rescue us from sin's curse, becoming like us yet without sin, suffering and bearing our sin on the cross - and all this "Labor" was done Because of Love (John 3:16). His Love for you and I was far greater than the pain and suffering He endured for us. He said, "it's all worth it," as His Love is recorded in Heb.12:2 ".... for the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross." It was but a few days in this world when compared to the eternal redemption of His Prized Creation - you and I!
Our Commander's Labor for us continues today through His "work" of transformation in us, changing us from glory to glory more into His image and likeness through the Power of Holy Spirit in us (2Corin.3:18). And His work is bathed in Perfect Love; it's a Labor of Love!
"Oh God, make Your Labor of Love within us, become our Labor of Love To You and For You to all people we walk among; as Your Warriors of Light!" Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side
