“Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.” Romans 12:11.
God calls for those who are at ease in Zion to be up and doing. Will they not listen to the Master’s voice? He wants prayerful, faithful workers who will sow beside all waters. Those who labour thus will be surprised to find how trials, resolutely borne in the name and strength of Jesus, will give firmness to the faith and renew the courage. In the path of humble obedience is safety and power, comfort and hope; but the reward will finally be lost by those who do nothing for Jesus. Weak hands will be unable adversity. Bible readers and Christian workers will receive the glorious prize, and hear the “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: … enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” Matthew 25:21. –Testimony Treasures, vol. 1, p. 464.

What kind of workers does God need for this corrupted generation of the last days?
Why will some lose their reward?
What will be our reward if we are faithful servants?
