Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Master [Lord], knowing that in the Master [Lord] your labor is not in vain. 
1 Corinthians 15:58
Jesus, the Messiah, has some work for us to do that is not futile. His work is always good. We have a YES in him that allows us to say no to the things that can crowd the agenda some days.
- When we have His yes, we won’t let anything move us off of the path.
- This is good news for sure.
- This plan is far superior to the old way of doing things.
Jesus challenges us to stand firm when we know what He wants us to do. There is the temptation to give in to other priorities. Our mission to do no less than what God has called us to do. We cannot waiver.
May we give ourselves fully to God’s goal and plan.
Most of us spend more than half of our waking hours at work. Some days more. It can be a real beat down some days. We come home drained and frustrated.
- Are we working for “the man”?
- Are we working for our Master Jesus, the Messiah?
It makes a difference to our work and to our co-workers. As we work, try a simple affirmation. “This is for you Jesus.” What a difference that will make. We can come home energize with what God has through us that day at work.
God’s goal: Jesus is clear our mission is to love our co-workers. That is our focus that makes real our faith at work. That means I am patient and kind, all day long.
