Activity is something we often fear. We fear both the loss of activity, as well as fear the power of our activity. In any event, nature tells us that what we fail to use, we fail to keep. Just think of all those years of foreign language classes we took! Where did they go? Lost with a lack of use, and failure to exercise.
I am convinced that we must put our hands to the plow, and keep our faces forward. We must pace ourselves, know the work of the Vineyard, and not wait for the command of the Master to move the plow forward.
The farmer sees the end of the row and plows, the farmer sees the end of the harvest and plants. So do we need to keep the vision ahead, move forward, and keep our hands on that plow.
Let us be bold in our faith in this day and in this generation. If we do not, others will not either. Let us not wait to be invited, as we are not timid of faith, but bold in both word and deed, demonstrating the Gospel by both, not just the one.
