Who makes it his assignment to preach the Gospel to fellow men, who uses every opportunity to canvass for the kingdom of God, who always only makes himself aware of the great suffering in the hereafter which souls face which did not find to God in earth life, and therefore want to help men as far as it is in his power, he does the greatest work of neighbourly love and in days to come will reap great award in eternity.

Today I read a message by Bertha Dudde and it emphasizes that the work in the vineyard of the Lord, as it is done for instance by those who write and read what this website contains, is the greatest work of neighbourly love.

Here now Bertha Dudde:

 

Workers in the vineyard of the Lord.

2. March 1941. B.D. NR. 1836.

Who makes it his assignment to preach the Gospel to fellow men, who uses every opportunity to canvass for the kingdom of God, who always only makes himself aware of the great suffering in the hereafter which souls face which did not find to God in earth life, and therefore want to help men as far as it is in his power, he does the greatest work of neighbourly love and in days to come will reap great award in eternity. The purpose of all creation is the redeeming of the spiritual, and when man contributes to the redemption, he fulfils the greatest and most important task of his earth life. When through the mouth of man the divine will is imparted to mankind, permanent instruction of men is possible, which remains in the framework of the natural, and innumerable souls can take part in this instruction, both giving as well as receiving. The one who gives exercises love through this, and the one who receives, prepares himself for love activity because the one who receives will, when he has recognized the worth of the gift, do the same he will want to give where he can because love again urges him to this. And so all spiritual participates in the work of redemption, and this is certainly the most beautiful work of love for which the souls of men can be active. This is that field which is to be cultivated all the time, the field from which first the weeds are to be removed and good seeds are to be sowed, so that ripe fruits can be harvested some day. And man is never to leave a field untilled; he is to never pass a man who is in spiritual need because his soul pleads for help, and it thanks him thousand fold when he grants this help to it. As long as man dwells on earth neither the misery of a wrestling soul nor the happiness of a redeemed soul is visible to him but when he has entered the spiritual kingdom he recognizes how much a man can contribute to lessen the spiritual need on earth and to help souls to happiness in the hereafter. And that is why the time on earth is to be used for soul work; constantly it is to be canvassed for the spiritual kingdom; it is to be fought for the name of Jesus and his teaching, and everything is to be done to rectify the state of darkness in mankind. By no means does it need to be servants of God sanctioned by the world which announce the Gospel. Every man can do this when he just has the will to serve God and to lead souls to him. Because this will will enable him to always teach what serves the soul to its salvation. God will give to man, who wants to be active to redeem, the right knowledge to put the right words into the mouth, lead souls to him, which need his help, and give him power to be active for him because when he offers himself for service, he will be accepted as worker in the vineyard of the Lord, and the work will always be assigned to him so as he can manage it. Because the Lord needs many harvesters when the harvest will be ripe, and he takes on everyone who offers himself for service. Amen. B.D. NR. 1836.
