Beginning in the year 1894, on the first Monday in September, our country has celebrated Labor Day. It honors the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country through meaningful labor.
In our worship for Labor Day, we thank God for our own means of employment, but we also recognize the greater work that God calls us to do. As Christ’s followers, we labor daily in the name of Jesus by making his love known in our words and actions. Though sometimes a burden, God has promised that our labor for Jesus will always produce a blessed result. As we encourage, teach, and forgive one another, we join our Savior in the greatest work possible – calling souls out of darkness into his wonderful light!
God bless your rest this weekend, and your work in Jesus’ name.
In His Service,
Pastor Brian Krueger
