"And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me: Fear not; I am the First and the Last; I am He that liveth and was dead; and behold I am alive forevermore. Amen."
- Revelation 1:17,18

Christian friends, our faith does not relieve us of responsibility for our daily tasks and duties. Instead, if strengthens us to know that God is working in us both to will and to do for His good pleasure Phil. 2:13.

Except to do Thy given task.
