‘My life is worth nothing…unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord’ Acts 20:24 NLT

There’s an old saying: ‘If you love your job you’ll never work a day in your life.’ That’s not quite true. Most people work hard. But even when they love their job they still have to do things they don’t like to do. They give effort above and beyond what’s comfortable. It’s probably more accurate to say that if you’re doing something you believe in, the hard work you do will bring you deep satisfaction. The hard work is part of the journey which is often more important than the arriving at the destination. Some people suffer from ‘destination disease’. They think that arriving at a certain place in life will bring them happiness. What a shame. Because the reality is that many times when we arrive, we discover that it wasn’t what we expected. If you become fixated on a destination you can miss the great things that happen along the way. You miss the joy of today. If you’re convinced that ‘someday’ is going to be your best day, you won’t put enough into today-or get enough out of it. If you’re not doing something significant with your life, it doesn’t matter how long it is. It’s not enough just to survive; you need a reason to live. This is where Christ comes in: He will give you new life, and add purpose to your life-plus the power to fulfil that purpose. DL Moody once said, ‘Let God have your life; He can do more with it than you can.’
