Similar to a regular job, work will not get itself done. That means people have to do the work. Likewise, people sometimes have to complete tasks under difficult circumstances. For instance, a job might need a person to create a 30-minute presentation in one day. This task may sound impossible. A person might have a coworker who swears constantly. Here, work might feel more like a tribulation. But despite such hard times, employers expect employees to still complete their job. This expectation exists with Christian faith. That is to say, despite the circumstances, Christians are expected to be faithful. This faithfulness produces godly actions.
We can assume we do God’s work, but still do lawlessness. The lawlessness I mention here translates to anomia. This word means the total disregard of God’s written and living word. Here, it is important to note that God’s word is also Jesus. Thus, anyone who disregards Jesus Christ falls into this category of lawlessness. It might be difficult to accept we live in such lawlessness if we deceive ourselves to think we do what God wants. However, whatever we trick ourselves into thinking is God’s work will not last.
