My Work

via TJC


“I am a Kingdom Man. God is my provider. He has given me gifts and talents to exemplify Him with the work of my hands. I will work with diligence and excellence. My labor will be honest and its fruits purposeful.” TJC Creed, 5th Stanza


Mark Twain is famously attributed with the quote, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” He also said, “I do not like work even when someone else is doing it.” What is your view on work? Do you like or hate it? Is it something you do just to live or is it something you do that gives you pleasure?


In Colossians 3:23-24 Paul gives us some direction regarding our work. “23 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord and not for people, 24  knowing that it is from the Lord that you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.” The word “heartily” is important in this verse. Actually, the Greek says, “from the soul.” Hmmm, what has my soul got to do with work?


God created you in His image. He gave us our soul (our personality, animal instinct) when we were created. This “soul” is what makes you you. The great Creator created you to work. It’s inbred in us since we are in His image. Work as if you are the very hands and feet of God. As a kingdom man you are. And, if you are representing the perfect Creator, make sure your work is done with excellence!


Today, as you go to work, remember that you represent the great Creator. If you are retired or out of job, find some way to serve another brother. Mow his grass for him. Wash his car. Do something today in the name of Jesus. He will be well-pleased.


Daily Battle Order: 

Stanza five reinforces that God is our provider, and He alone is the source of our gifts and talents. As such, we need to honor God with the abilities He has given us. Each of us has a ministry, and our ministries extend beyond our churches and fellow circle of believers. Are you honoring God in your office? Do you go

to school and work hard as thanks to God? Are you giving your time and talent to those who are less fortunate?.
