The Christian at Work

From Series: Alive In Christ, Volume 3

Colossians 3:22-4:1  (ID: 1088)

Paul in the book of Colossians writes regarding the Christian and his or her daily work. A Christian's faith should not be kept hidden, but be the framework of our life. Regardless if a Christian likes or dislikes their work we are to be motivated by Christ to be obedient rather than out of fear of one's boss. All work makes a difference when we remember who we are doing it for.

Topics:

22Bondservants,6 obey in everything those who are your earthly masters,7 not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. 23Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. 25For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has done, and there is no partiality.

1Masters, treat your bondservants justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.
