Good morning my lovely family and friends in the Lord. Colossians 3:23-24 is the text for our reflection this morning;
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Many believers have the conviction that taking responsibilities and doing our best as preachers, Bible readers, leaders etc, is the only opportunity to attract a reward from God, that is a wrong mind set.
Make Great Impact
Believers are described by Jesus Christ as the salt and light of the world so whether it’s service at church or at the workplace or the community, one must make great impact by doing it heartily and perfectly ( with cheerful heart, joy and love)”as working for the Lord.”
Give out your best
Everyone must give out his or her best wherever the opportunity is given. You must labor on so that you may attract a reward from God. Many people do their best when the Pastor or the Director is watching but remember there is one who sees all our deeds and motives.
In Ephesians 6:6-7, Paul admonished that
Obey them not only to win their favor when their eyes is on you, but as slaves of Christ doing the will of God from their heart. Serve whole heartedly as if you are serving the Lord, not people.
As you begin the day, whether you are a nurse, doctor, teacher, Pastor,Banker, Policeman, Lawyer, businessman/ woman , an Artisan etc, Please give out your best and do it with the mentality that you are working for Lord Christ Jesus.
Serve God wherever you are with all your heart. May God bless and keep you from falling.
