“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.” Colossians 3: 23-25
This is a hard one for me! I don’t know about you, but I can easily cop out when it comes to a job that I don’t want to do. Case in point, right now, I am a receptionist. With every day that goes by, I grow increasingly aware that this is not where I want to be forever. No part of my job even comes close to what I know the Lord has called me to.
Now is not forever.
I need to remember this…with every ounce of me, I need to remember this.
For me, in this season, working for the Lord looks like me showing up faithfully to a job that I am not passionate about and being salt and light to the lost around me. It looks like me walking out an authentic love for Jesus. It looks like me walking out loyalty and excellence.
The thing, I hold on to the most during this time is hope…hope that God has a purpose for me and hope that He will bring it to pass. He will equip me for my calling. He will lead me into His plans in His perfect timing.
What does working for the Lord in this season of your life look like?
