I would like to focus this week on the work you do.mends this: “Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men” Colossians 3: 23).
I do not exclude people who are unemployed and looking for a job or a source of gain but the Bible is clear “Whatever you do”. Even if presently you have no work do not be idle throughout the days. Do house chores, gardening or volunteer to help a loved one or an organization.
Many Christians imagine that it is only Are you a lawyer, carpenter or a doctor ? Are you a Pastor, minister, economist, or a journalist ? Are you a secretary, business person, pupil, student, artist or a housewife ? …. Whatever you do, know that the Bible recomin the church that they do serve God. This Scripture exhorts you to work as if you were doing it for the Lord and not for your employer or for any salary nor profit.
You may be doing an activity (the best you have for now) to sustain yourself and you find yourself at a position lower than your academic qualifications. Know that the same principle applies: whether it is an activity of your choice, out of passion or constraint, God wants you to do it with a good heart, in an excellent way, as if you were doing it for Him.
If you work just for a salary or profit, you will only receive human reward. He is the one able to sort out between those who serve Him and those who do not serve Him. “… Knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance.”(Colossians 3 : 24), says the Bible.
Through your work, serve Christ, the Lord, as recommended by Colossians 3: 24. The more anointed you are in your field of activity, the more you will excel by divine wisdom and thus be able to influence your environment in a positive way. Take the opportunity that your activity gives you to influence people around you and push them to turn to your God.
Yes, beloved if you love your job and you do it to please God above all, He is the one who will give you beyond the salary of men. Men will give you for example health insurance, money, etc. However, God will provide beyond your expectations: He will keep you and your family away from diseases. He will give you divine health as well as peace, joy, assurance of tomorrow, etc. And you will experience His helping hand !
Even when the wages that men pay you are insufficient, if you work above all for the Lord, you will be surprised to see that by His grace, He will enable you to face your burdens beyond even your imagination. This is the divine reward !
May God bless you Beloved
“So watch yourselves, that you do not forget the covenant of the LORD your God which He made with you, and make for yourselves a graven image in the form of anything against which the LORD your God has commanded you“.
1 Timothy 4:1
