Working for the Real Master

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23,24

This verse has been a great encouragement for me, whatever we do let us do whole heartedly as we are working for the Lord. Today, while meditating this chapter, I was reminded about the ants, especially the worker ants that always work to support the colony. Its so interesting to see that these worker ants look for food, look after the young ants, and defend the nest from unwanted visitors, they clean the nest by removing rubbish out of the nest.

The important thing is that they do all these things not for their sake but to support the colony. They continue to do the same till their lifetime. Likewise, whatever we do in this world, let us do for the Lord as we are in this world but we are not of this world. In our church, fellowship, workplace, home, college, school and wherever we go and whatever we do, always let us do it for the Lord.

Let the love of God compel us to do things for His glory. Let us not do anything just for the sake of doing, because we may not be able to stand firm till the end. But, when we fix our focus on the one who created us, who died for us and who saved us from the destruction then we will be able to live a joyful and victorious life. We will never regret for anything that we do, but we will always have a thankful and humble heart. Always keep yourselves in God’s love.
