1 Corinthians 3: 13-15
13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
I believe, nothing will be more disappointing, than laboring in Jesus name all your life and yon that great day, when you kneel before God
You then find out that he had no hand in the work you dedicated in him.
If your work is for God, it will last, it will be profitable to God, if not you'll be wasting your time.
We must decrease and he must increase. Be sure that your service is sincere, do it for him
Put God first.
Slapping a scripture on a picture doesn't means its of God,
He knows our intention, now think of it as this,
if you draw a picture or sing a song(christian), inwardly, only to show others how well you can do it well
but outwardly you try to make it seem as if you are doing it for God, your building on the firm foundation, wood, hay and stubble.
If you are serving God for recognition, you are building on the firm foundation wood, hay, and stubble.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
John 3:21 (NASB) "But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
Glad to hear it my friend
I'll remember you in prayer that you stay faithful and sincere to God
Keep on for the Lord!
I'll have to check you some of your work sometime
okay. In times when you get discouraged it's
always important to know scriptures like
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thingwhereto I sent it.
God's word won't return void
And 1Corinthians 3:6-7
"I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase."
Know that when your doing it for God it is accomplished even if you don't see the effect.
Your part may be the stage of sowing, another's could be to water and the other is the one to reap the harvest.
All in all, God is the one who will get what he desires
So do your part trusting and knowing your part is vital to God's overall design
This trips me up ALOT, especially when its an idea you thought was Gold, lol
but i see as i pull away from reading manga, even if this just for fun i see God begin to give me his ideas y'kno.
he said to come to him empty
2 timothy 2:21
When we stay in his word we begin to.....in a way think like God, meaning we would know how to keep the comedy clean and how to draw characters ect
I'll pray for you my sister
Keep on for the lord
God bless ya
if you need help with your manga i'm open to help with conflicting thoughts
But on a serious note, I agree with you about your work coming from God not from yourself.
talked about is straight and narrow
but it is beginning to be broadened by thin unstable foundations that will collapse into hell
We must stay sober, and set apart
That's more wood hat and stubble for the fire
1 Corinthians 1:17 - "For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect."
1 Corinthians 2:12-13 - "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual."
