Verse of the Day
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men” [Colossians 3:23 – NIV]
We are inundated nowadays with the view that our “exercise of religion” is limited to worship services on Sunday and that our religious beliefs and convictions have no relevance or place in our lives on the other days of the week. Don’t allow yourselves to be brainwashed into believing that your faith has no place at home, at work, or anywhere else that you may find yourself during the week.
The secular world is waging war on religion, especially Christianity. Of course, despite what you may hear on cable news or read in the newspapers, this is not exactly breaking news. It’s been going on for years; sometimes it’s subtle and sometimes not. It’s important, in fact critical, for Believers to resist this message.
As today’s passage reminds us, we work for God. He’s our Boss. So don’t leave your Bible at home when you go to work, but take His Word with you. Every aspect of your life, the decisions you make, your relationships, how you behave—all of it is based on your relationship with God. We don’t have two sets of rules in life. God’s Word is the only thing that matters in our lives. His rules are the ones that we should live by every day of the week!
