Powerful spoken word poem about working for God's glory.

It's so easy to neglect God's kingdom and purpose, instead prioritising living for the here and now. Written and performed by Ben Holmes who draws on his own experience of this, talking about how we need to work hard from a place of salvation and love, not for it, but for God's glory.

"Let beads of holy sweat, free you from complacency, compromise and conformity. Let's not be standard Christians but ones who plough to the end of their field and beyond affecting eternity."
