“Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…”
From a worldly perspective, we understand that if we want to have the
things we need or even a few luxuries, a certain amount of work has to be done. Scripture admonishes the man who doesn’t work. He doesn’t get to eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10). Our problem lies in the same old routine, and a job, that often, is more of a headache than a blessing. Our days become heavy, and we don’t find the fulfillment that we need. The issue lies in our perspective.
Colossians 3:23-24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord,
and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the
inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
We have compartmentalized our lives. We have a work self, a home self, a Church self, and a leisure-time self. Sometimes these people even act differently according to the situation. This should not be so. As for the believer, we are to serve the Lord in everything we do. At work, we live with integrity and try to be an example to our co-workers. At home, we teach our children godly living by the things we say and do. At Church, we find our place to serve and exalt the rest of the body by being who God has called us to be. In our leisure time, we
make sure that everyone sees these things are not more important than God or family.
No matter where you find yourself today. You serve the Almighty God who
loves you and gave His One and Only Son to save you. We have an opportunity to
serve Him every day. That is why Paul encourages us, don’t grow weary in well
doing, for in the due season we will reap, if we keep working (Galatians 6:9).
Whatever work you find before you, do it as you are serving the Lord. Your
life gives testimony to how He has changed you; others will take notice.
