Philippians 1:22
The Fruit of my Labor

22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.

The spread of the Gospel – the joy that it brings
The joy that I get when a congregation sings,
“O happy day, O happy day, when Jesus washed my sins away…”
Is what has made my life more than what I say
But is a series of holy and daily events
That comes through Him whom the Lord sent
The Holy Spirit to dwell within and then guide
As continually He remains and in me abides
To produce in my life what can bring glory to God
Allowing me the privilege to speak for my Lord
Words of life to those who in sin are dead
And then through them, the Gospel is spread
The believers are gathered to be built up in faith
And through them to their communities God shows His grace
As they in turn teach their own children and others
And live as God’s family – they are sisters and brothers
With a new life-style that changed them, that is obvious
And a darkened community now has light and a conscience
That reveals what is right to those in the darkness
And brings the light of life when they too hearken
So the process continues and it has spread world wide
And the fruit of my labor in prayer, is that this work will abide
With commitment to God and His unfailing truth
And rejoicing, some day we partake of this God-given fruit.

“I don’t know what Thou art able to use Father God, of the years of my labor. But if some precious souls are blessed with salvation and spiritual growth, then I am satisfied and blessed. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
