March 5th – What’s your Wage?

For audio, click on the title and an audio bar will appear below.

Brimming over – the wage of he who serves the Kingdom will cover the wage of the world, as the ocean covers a single grain of sand. Your work is among the great harvest; your light, among the great darkness. The harvest is white beyond its ideal gathering, but the time has been extended that many more would be gathered. Your workplace brims with those. Focus both on the needs of the tasks, but also on the needs of the people I bring to you. Treat them as I have treated you. Show patience. Bring blessing to their lives. Bring truth. The light that shines from the way you work will draw them close, that the Holy Spirit may move and the sickle of the harvest will bring them bound in My love into the Kingdom. It is a difficult thing to see the great wage of the harvester, but he who works for this wage will not have room to contain it. Even in eternity, its measure cannot be held.

John 4:35-36 (ESV) – Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.  Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.

Bottom Line:  Remember that we, as Christians in the workplace, even younger Christians in the classrooms, have higher work, work that pays a much, much higher than we expect – for a far, far longer time. Make sure blessing others is an intentional part of your work day, and His Word, for the great harvest, will work through you.
