Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Laziness is a word that only functions when we loose interest / passion, in my opinion. Interestingly enough, the KJV says do not be slothful in Business. I think the best translation for me, here and now is……… Don’t be lazy to get the job done! Church all over the world has become a place of laziness. People hide behind grace, gifting and Sabbath but actually they are just lazy. Phrases like “God did it for us”, should compel us to do even more for God. I hate it when people say: that is just not my gifting. Well, what is? We should have Zeal in something! Yes, God did take a day of rest, after HE WORKED SIX DAYS. In this year to come, we will need to get more doe for he Kingdom than ever.
Be constant in prayer! If we pray more, we will get more done!
