Colossians 3:23-24

Whatever you are doing, work at it with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not for people,  because you know that you will receive your inheritance from the Lord as the reward. Serve the Lord Christ.

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.

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,  knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

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.

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;  Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.


As Christians, we are to apply ourselves to whatever we work at as if we were working for the Lord. This goes to create a solid witness in our lives for Christ Jesus - and it is not of our own power that we come by the strength to accomplish it, but by the grace and strength of our Lord Jesus Christ. What we can do is strive to remember Jesus in every situation, and rather than hasten to a response, allow patience and the peace of Christ to enter in. As you serve others on this earth, whatever their position...serve as unto the Lord and pray that God would lead you in that service.
