Colossians 3:23-24

Colossians 3:23-24 – Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

How many of you absolutely Love your job? There are some working their dream and doing something they enjoy, but for a lot of us that is simply not the case. We are working because we know we need to and we need an income.
Now, we may not mind our job, but we would prefer something different. Whatever your case may be, though, we all reach a point when we are exhausted. For whatever reason we have grown tired of what we do and, at least to an extent, dread going to work. I know I’ve been there. It can feel like our job is pointless in the overall scheme of things. That’s when this verse becomes most helpful.
This verse should always be at the forefront of our minds; but when we are growing weary of our job is when we need it most. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”
Let me ask you this: If God asked you to do something, would you do? Yes, of course we would. If we heard God speak audibly to us to tell us to do something we would jump at the opportunity to do it. And we would do it to the best of our ability.
Well, just because God doesn't always speak to us audibly doesn't mean He’s not directing your path. He has brought you to the place you are at. It is time to renew our minds to that thought and remember who we are serving. God has placed you where you are. You are His and He is yours. No matter what you find yourself doing, know that you are doing for Him.
Even though you have an earthly boss, you are ultimately serving a heavenly one. As we begin to see it this way our jobs become easier and more fulfilling, because we know that it is God we are serving.
