undone

was reading through the prayer that Jesus prayed for His disciples this morning in john 17...verse 4 captured my attention, thought i'd share a nugget w/you...

"i brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do" (jn 17:4)...

i've read this countless times and just haven't seen what i saw this morning...

we all have an assignment...a ministry...a purpose...a "work" given to us...

and the deal is...it's not about the "work"...

it's about the assignment...it's about "that thing" God has called you to do, equipped you to do, enabled you to do...it's really about...obedience...

it's also about completion...finishing the "thing"...the "work" God has called us to...and doing so in way that brings glory to God...not leaving it undone

Thanks for sharing this nugget of truth that is so loaded. Sometimes I think the mistakes we make can interfere with obeying our calling, but "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Rom 8:28
(NIV)
