Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58).
Everyone you know is either saved or lost. People are either going to heaven or they are going to hell. Most people today do not know which way "up" is spiritually; they wander aimlessly looking for all the right answers in all the wrong places. This is why Jesus called His followers both "salt" and "light." In this turbulent world, we are under the command of our Lord to go into the world with the gospel of salvation. While many refuse the Lord's gracious invitation, many others will receive it, and their lives will be forever changed. Out task is to "go" and "proclaim" the gospel. The results are God's. "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord."
Father, today let me share your burden for this lost world by being both salt and light. Help me, by example, to lift up the love of Jesus to a world that has no concept of true love. May I not fear what men may say, but instead, seek only to faithfully carry out your work and witness. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
