Do you believe without expectations of reward?
Lifting the poor out of the dust, and him who is in need out of the lowest place, to give them their place among rulers, and for their heritage the seat of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's and he has made them the base of the world. He will keep the feet of his holy ones, but the evil-doers will come to their end in the dark night, for by strength no man will overcome. (1 Judges 2:8-9 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
To believe without expectation is what Paul talks about regarding telling others of Christ. We, too, should not expect a reward for faith. We should do what we are called to do. No constraints, no expectations, just pure faith in all the goodness it is. As Judges tells us, God will keep us in the light.
Sweet loving Jesus Christ, I understand sharing my belief and faith in you, and God is part of my role and my life's plan. I offer this to you without expectation and hope of reward. Please give me the words to share with each person. You know their heart and need, help me touch them with your comments. I willingly offer you my voice to reach those who yearn for you. Amen.
