Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the LORD, not for human mastersÂ Â – Col 3:23
This verse has always reminded me to look at everything I do as if I were am employee of God, working for Him.
It didnâ€™t matter what I was doing, typing a report for my boss, washing the dishes, or even folding the laundry.Â My goal was to do my best for God.
Recently I found another story and verse that had me look at these daily chores slightly different.
In Matthew 3, Jesus is approaching John the Baptist and asking to be baptized. John says it should be the other around.Â Notice Jesusâ€™ response in verse 15. â€œIt should be done, for we must carry out all that God requires.â€
Did you see it?Â â€œfor weâ€, WE â€œmust carry out all that God requires.â€
We aren’t just working FOR God….we are working WITH God.
You are not alone (Matt 28:20) â€œI am with you alwaysâ€.
I love Isaiah 41:10 â€œI am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will hold you with with my righteous right hand.â€
We are not given an assignment and sent on our way.Â We are in this with Jesus, doing Godâ€™s will â€“ together.
