1 Corinthians 10:31 (ESV)
31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

WHAT IF?

WHAT IF THE WORK IS THE REWARD?

WHAT IF THE PRIZE IS IN THE PROCESS?

WHAT IF YOU CAN BE GRATEFUL IN THE GRIND?

1 Corinthians 15:9-10 (ESV)
9 For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.
Colossians 3:22-24 (ESV)
22 Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters,[a] not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

THE THREE ENEMIES OF THE TRUE REWARD

  1. The pillow: the seduction of comfort.
  2. The shiny thing: the allure of constant distractions.
  3. The towel: the perpetual temptation to quit.
Acts 20:24 (ESV)
24 But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
1 Corinthians 9:26-27 (ESV)
26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control,[a] lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
