PAST TENSE/PRESENT TENSE

“So you too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done’” (Luke 17:10).

“I’m done.”  “I’ve served my time.”  “I’m taking a break.”  “Let someone else do it.”  Examine these often heard statements in the life of the church in the light of today’s scripture.  Any kind of supposed commitment to Christ that can be explained only in terms of past tense; that has no impact on the present tense is, in fact, only a pretense.  Our calling and the work to be done is never complete.
