Jeremiah 48:10 (KJV)
Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.
Gill says “they were not to spare them, as Saul did the Amalekites, and Ahab Benhadad. This is a general rule, which may be applied to all divine work and service; every man has work to do for God; some in a more public, others in a more private way; all should be done in uprightness and sincerity, with all faithfulness and integrity: it is done deceitfully when men play the hypocrite; and negligently when they are backward to it, lukewarm in it, and infrequent in the performance of it; which brings upon them the curse of God; and which is not a curse causeless, but a legal one”
We all have a different work to do for the Lord. Whatever our work is, we ought to do it heartily and until God says we are done.
Colossians 4:17 (KJV)
And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.
