I have a question for you: Would your work attitudes change drastically if Jesus were your boss? If so, listen to Paul:
“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ” (Colossians 3:23-24, NLT)
We work not merely as if Jesus were the boss. We work knowing that in the final analysis – Jesus is the boss, as Paul’s last sentence makes clear. “Master (or Boss) you are serving is Christ” is the hallmark of the believer’s practice, and that extends to our works.
With Jesus as our Master, there is only one way we can do our works: with all our heart. Tackle our works with joy, passion and enthusiasm. If it is boring (I know some works are indeed boring), try to devise creative ways of building a challenge into it. Let no-one, especially the not-yet-believers at our workplace, be able to say, as they watch us at work, “Richard’s heart isn’t in it.” The Scripture urges us to work “as slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people” (Ephesians 6:7-6, NLT).
Work as if Jesus were the boss – Jesus is the Boss
Work with all our Heart – Work with Enthusiasm
Working with people – Working for the Lord
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
