WORK FOR GOD
Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a bondservant or is free. Ephesians 6:5-8
We don't always go to work with enthusiasm. Sometimes we can be very ill-motivated. Some days we are tired from other pursuits, issues, and distractions outside of our work environment. And on other days we don't like the way things are going on inside the work environment, so we become depleted of desire which causes the passion meter to fall drastically. We have all been on both sides of this issue.
But wouldn't this change if we worked for a new employer? What if we worked only to please God?
If we did our pursuit, purpose, and passion would all change. Pursuits would now align with godly morals, and we would watch the death of industry in pornography, gambling, drugs, and crime. Purposes would change as well. If I am in a serving industry like vehicle maintenance, home repair, cleaning, or hospitality I am now not serving people for my purposes, I'm serving for God for His purposes, because He alters the why behind my service and therefore how it gets done. Imagine if we each work like this today - would this not ultimately change our passion?
DO THIS TODAY: Work today for God, and regain passion.
PRAYER: God, I do confess I don't always work as if I am working for you and this does alter my pursuit, purpose, and passion. Help me regain my passion by focusing only and always on serving you. Help me to give it my all today.
