Day 5: Walking the Path Ahead
Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.Romans 12:11 (KJV)
Reflection: God doesn’t just call us to be holy; He wants us to be active in our holiness. This involves fervency in spirit and diligent service. Being “not slothful in business” means we should strive to serve the Lord wholeheartedly, putting our best effort into every task set before us.
Illustration: If you were preparing a meal for someone important, you’d probably pull out all the stops—you’d use the best ingredients, follow the recipe carefully, and present it beautifully. Similarly, our service to the Lord should be our best effort, presented beautifully to Him.
Prayer: Lord, fill me with fervency in spirit. Let my service to You be diligent and wholehearted, reflecting my gratefulness for Your grace. Amen.
