Love my job!

Did you know that Jesus is thought to have repeated His teachings over and over not because of the different crowds but for His disciples who he was depending on to change the world. I thought I would use His repetition strategy as well and refresh the weekend message in our minds as we head into our work week.

Colossians 3:22-25 (MSG) 22 Servants, do what you're told by your earthly masters. And don't just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. 23 Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, 24 confident that you'll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you're serving is Christ. 25 The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being Christian doesn't cover up bad work.

1. Do exactly what your boss asks of you.
2. Do your best at your job at all times.
3. Recognize Jesus as your boss and offer your work as Worship.
4. Work not only for a raise in this life, but also for a “pay day” in eternity. R

emember that people are watching our effort and drawing conclusions about our character. We have an opportunity to let them “see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven”. Let’s take full advantage and “make the most of every opportunity” to set a good example of a Christ-centered work ethic. Let’s honor Christ at work today. Have a great day and invite someone to come to church with you this week!
