MATTHEW 20 – SPIRITUALLY IDLE
3 And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 and said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went. Matthew 20:3-4
The Bible teaches that humanity is “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). In doing so, God created us for His glory and His kingdom for His purpose. He has predetermined a unique work, very specific to each person (Ephesians 2:10).
Although this is the case, many Christians are, spiritually speaking, “idly, standing around in the marketplace” while pursuing finite goals towards superficial ends. While many of these carnal objectives have their place in this world, much of it is like burnt-up chaff in the wind, having very little value in God’s kingdom.
While God has called us Christians to be fruitful and work in his vineyard, in this case, God’s kingdom, many of His saints are sadly occupied idly in a world that has monopolized their time, talents, and treasures.
You have been created for God’s purpose. He has called you for His glory. And for every saint, God has predetermined a spiritual work, “before the foundation of the world, to walk in it.”
Do you know Him? If so, Christian, it’s time to start working in God’s vineyard during the day “for when night comes, no man works.”
