Well, today is Labor day, and as I sit here pondering the word labor, I can't help but think that there is labor and there is labor. There is labor that is important, such as the labor of bringing souls to the Knowledge of Christ, and there is labor such as the labor of Thomas Jefferson's corruption and abomination of corrupting the Holy Word of God in his blasphemous Jefferson Bible.
There is labor that is so important that life cannot exist without it and there is labor that life would be better without. Today, we are going to look at Scripture that discusses labor that is second only to the labor of preaching the gospel of Christ's salvation.
The absolute most important labor done on earth is the labor of preaching the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to those who are Saved and those who are unsaved. But following closely at the heals of preaching salvation through the Lord Jesus's crucifixion is another labor.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127 3-5)
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; but (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety. (1 Timothy 2:5-15)
The absolute most important labor is the preaching of Christ Jesus, the second is being a mother and having babies. The most important labor a man can do is not being a doctor, lawyer, or even president, it is the labor of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The most important labor a woman can do is the labor of childbirth, not being a senator or doctor, teacher or secretary. The most important labor a woman can do is to stay home, have children, obey her husband, homeschool and make cookies for her kids.
So, on this labor day of the year of our Lord 2003 AD, let us take a moment to call our preachers and thank them for their labor of love and spend the rest of the day thanking our wives, the mother of our children for their labor of love of filling our quivers with the arrows of love, our children.
To discourage a young boy from being a preacher because there is no money in it is of satan. To discourage your wife or daughters from having as many children as God has given her eggs is likewise not of God, but of satan.
To all the moms and preachers of the Gospel of Salvation through the Blood of Christ, I say, "Happy Labor Day, and may the Lord our God, Christ Jesus, bless you and your labor." Amen.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
