“…Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ (the Messiah)…” – Colossians 3: 23-24
Christians do not conform in this world.
They live differently because they know God has different plans for them.
They know that they will only pass on this earth, and this is not their permanent home, their final destination is with the Father. While on earth, they need to work and strive like any body else does.
There is a way of life lived by Christians, that is, in all they do, they keep themselves holy. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do. (1 Peter 1:15) So, when they work in any company, in any place, in any time, they work as for the Lord and not for men. They value their work because they know this is what God plans them to do momentarily. They know that everything in their lives is only a series of tests that they should passed.
Paul encourages us that anything we do, whatever may be the task, we work for it heartily with all our soul as something done for the Lord and not for people. If this is the attitude every time we work, there will be no boring job for us, there will be no unhappy job/ worker.
It’s like mind setting.
We set our minds that our work or job is God’s will, except of course for the illegal jobs out there, that God will grant Himself the reward for that service we rendered.
Other professing Christians work wisely and deliberately. They only work when someone is watching them. When their superiors are out and nobody can’t see them, they don’t do their work assignments, especially those who are not happy with their work.
A true Christian is always dedicated to his work, be it in any place or time, because he knows that God is always watching Him and God will reward his faithfulness in all things he does.
In any relationships, we try our best to be good. This same goes with our work relationships. We do not only what’s good but what’s the best.
If in this life we can’t be faithful enough, we can’t be worthy to be with the Father in heaven.
