What’s more important – doing great things for God, or doing small things for Him?
Many Christians have good intentions and a great passion for God, but it is a mistake to have our minds set only on pursuing lofty future adventures for Him – while neglecting the daily and constant battles of the Christian life. What good is it to do great things for the Lord a few times in our lives, and have no passion for the daily spiritual battle which He tells us to fight?
The word admonishes us to pray without ceasing (Philippians 4:6, 1 Thessalonians 5:17), to overcome sin (Rom 12:21, Col 3:5), to daily take up our cross, and to die to ourselves (Luke 9:23, 1 Corinthians 15:31). Let your passion to do “big things” for God never overshadow your passion to daily live a life that is pleasing to Him.
