Carrying on your work

But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load. ~Gal. 6:4-5 (ESV)

“After we had wandered many years in the new path, of salvation by faith and works; about two years ago it pleased God to show us the old way, of salvation by faith only. And many soon tasted of this salvation, ‘being justified freely, having peace with God, rejoicing in hope of the glory of God,’ and ‘having his love shed abroad in their hosts.’ These now ran the way of his commandments: They performed all their duty to God and man. They walked in all the ordinances of the Lord: and through these means, which he had appointed for that end, received daily grace to help in time of need, and went on from faith to faith.” ~From “Journal, June 22, 1740” by John Wesley

Heavenly Father, Help me to be about Your work this day. Give me the grace to see the tasks that You have laid out for me. Help me to carry on the work began by Your saints. Amen.
