Hebrews 6:10

Hebrews 6:10 – God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the Love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.

           We are told to Love God and Love people. That is our mission, and by doing so we will uphold everything that God has told us to do. If you Love God you do what you can to serve Him; if you Love people you will do what you can to help them. In saying this we must never tire of doing what is right, even when it seems as if no one notices. Maybe they do notice and just aren’t saying anything, or maybe they don’t notice at all. What does it matter anyway? Are you serving God or man? Who are you looking to for affirmation?
           Even when we are serving people we need to keep in mind who we are really serving, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not man (Colossians 3:23).” We need to devote all we do to God and serve others as we would serve Him, giving our best all the time.
           Now we come back to this verse in Hebrews. We are reminded that God will not forget your work and on top of that we see that when you are helping His people you are showing Love to Him. Continue helping. Work to meet the needs of those around you. In doing so you are Loving God and Loving people.
           Then in Colossians 3:24 God promises that He will reward you for what you do. Never tire of doing right and don’t look to people for affirmation or reward; look to God. He will give you what you need to make it through and give you the energy to keep up the good work.
