More work to do, as used here, is a reference to God is not finished with getting the glory out of your life. In II Thessalonians 3:13, Paul urges his readers not get weary. The text reads, “And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.”
In this devotional, let’s focus on how we should not quit doing good, because God has some more work for us to do for Him. God saved you to do a good work for Him. There are too many more heads that God wants to you to lift. There are too many more young people who need your wisdom.
There are too many more families who need your assistance. There are too many more battles to be fought and won. You cannot quit now.
There are too many more people who need to be saved. There are too many saved people who need to grow in their discipleship. There are too many discipled followers who need to be trained to be leaders.
Hebrews 10:24-25 is a great passage to keep in mind. It says, 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. 25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
And then Colossians 3:16 says, 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
In spite of your growing more and more fatigued as the years go by and growing more frustrated by those who can but will not, you cannot quit.
No matter what you have gone through, it doesn’t compare to what Jesus went through for us. Jesus could have quit, when Judas betrayed Him. Jesus could have quit, when His disciples left Him.
Jesus could have quit, when Thomas doubted Him. But Jesus stayed and finished His good work. In fact, He is still interceding for you and for me.
You and I have a too much more work to do. God is calling us to keep on trusting and obeying Him and His will.

Prayer Great and awesome God, the One who still has a great work for me to do, it is to you that I pray. Thank You for calling me to do a great work. You had so many other options.
I confess that sometimes I get weary. I feel like sitting down and doing nothing like so many others. Please forgive me. Help me to realize that I have a more work to do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
