In churches we don’t talk about I normal work very much. Often we can give the impression about life that Sunday is our spiritual life (which is really important and the main event) and the rest of the day God doesn’t intrude on that. Well that’s not True!!
The other thing we tend to do is set a hierarchy of importance of job roles and their importance to God like this Starting at the most important and Holy:
Missionary, evangelist, apostle, church pastor, church youth worker, christian charity worker, doctor, nurse, teacher, manager, carer, Business man, banker, taxi driver.
That not true at all!!! God would take a faithful taxi driver any day over an unfaithful missionary.
God is very, very interested in our work places. Think of your work as your worship.
God is glorified when you are a good employee as it's Him you ultimately work for.
Christians should be the best employees!!!
If truth be said, this is the hardest place to live out our faith. Being a Christian in church is easy! Being a Christian in your work place is hard.
We spend often at least often 40 hours a week at work living all that time for God is a tough call!!
It is tough and that why we need the Holy Spirit to get us through.
Today pray for your workplace that God will fill you with His Holy Spirit so you Glorify Him more and more.
Pray for your co workers – even the ones you don’t like, even the managers that don’t know what they are doing and aren’t very good!! Don’t pray that God will change them! Pray that God will change you first!
Pray that through the Holy Spirit you are able to patiently endure in the work place.
Remember that things won’t always go the way you want it to at work. This is due to the fall and the thorns in the field talked about early in Genesis.
Pray for more of the fruits of the spirit in you, in your work place.
Pray for salvation's in your work place and among your work colleague’s
Remember you work is your worship!
Helpful Bible Verses
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’
“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”
