Work

John 6:26-27 “Jesus answered them and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves, and were filled. Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man shall give to you, for on Him the Father, even God, has set His seal.”

Matthew 21:28-31 He said to them, “But what do you think? A man had two children, and coming to the first he said, 'Child, go today; work in my vineyard.' And answering, he said, 'I will not.' But afterward, having regretted, he went. And having come to the second, he said the same. And answering, he said, 'I go, sir'; but he did not do it. Which of the two did the will of the father?” They said to Him, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you, The tax collectors and the harlots go before you into the kingdom of God.”

Matthew 9:38; Luke 10:2 Then He is saying to His disciples, “The harvest, indeed, is vast, yet the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, so that He should be casting out/ejecting/extracting workers into His harvest.”

John 9:4 Jesus said, “I must be working the works of Him Who sends Me while it is day. Coming is the night, when no one can work.”

Acts 14:26 “…they sail away to Antioch, whence they were given over to the grace of God for the work which they fulfill.”

Acts 15:38 Yet Paul counted the man who withdraws from them from Pamphylia and comes not with them to the work -- this man not worthy to take along.

I Corinthians 3:11-15 For other foundation can no one lay beside that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone is building on this foundation gold and silver, precious stones, wood, grass, straw, each one's work will become apparent, for the day will make it evident, for it is being revealed by fire. And the fire, it will be testing each one's work -- what kind it is. If anyone's work will be remaining which he builds on it, he will get wages. If anyone's work shall be burned up, he will forfeit it…

Philippians 2:13 For it is God Who is operating in you to will as well as to work for the sake of His delight.

Matthew 6:24-33 “Now no one can be working under two bosses, for either he will be hating the one and loving the other, or will be upholding one and despising the other. You cannot be working for God and mammon. Therefore I am saying to you, Do not worry about you soul, what you may be eating, or what you may be drinking, nor yet about your body, what you should be putting on. Is not the soul more than nourishment, and the body than apparel? Look at the flying creatures of heaven, that they are not sowing, neither are they reaping, nor are they gathering into barns, and your heavenly Father is nourishing them. Are not you of more consequence than they? Now who of you by worrying is able to add on to his stature one cubit? And why are you worrying about apparel? Study the anemones/flowers of the field, how they are growing. Not toiling are they, nor yet are they spinning. Yet I am saying to you that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed as one of these. Now if the grass of the field, which is today, and tomorrow is cast into the stove, God thus is garbing; not much rather you, scant of faith? You, then, should not be worrying, saying, 'What may we be eating?' or 'What may we be drinking?' or 'With what may we be clothed?' For for all these the nations are seeking. For aware is your heavenly Father that you need all of these. Yet seek first the kingdom and its righteousness, and these all shall be added to you.

Colossians 3:23-24 “All, whatsoever you may be doing, work from the soul, as to the Lord and not to men, Being aware that from the Lord you will be getting the compensation of the enjoyment of an allotment: for the Lord Christ are you serving.”

II Thessalonians 3:7-10 For you yourselves are aware how you must be imitating us, for we are not disorderly among you, neither did we eat bread gratuitously/undeservedly/vainly from anyone, but, with toil and labor, we are working night and day, so as not to be burdensome to any of you. Not that we have not the right, but that we may be giving you ourselves as a model for you to be imitating us. For even when we were with you, we gave this charge to you: that “If anyone is not willing to work, neither let him eat.”

II John 1:8 Be looking to yourselves, that you should not be destroying that for which you work, but you may be getting full wages.

III John 1:5-6 Beloved, you are doing a faithful thing whatsoever you should work for the brethren, and this for strangers, who testify to your love in the sight of the ecclesia…

Hebrews 13:20-21 “Now may the God of peace, Who is leading up our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, from among the dead by the blood of the eonian covenant, be adapting you to every good work to do His will, doing in us what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to Whom be glory from age to age. Amen!”
