Worship is any genuine expression which begins in the heart and gives honor to God!
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. (Colossians 3:23-24)
When I’m at work, I sometimes hear co-workers tell me they can’t wait till they leave because they are looking forward to a vacation the next day or week. I remind them that this is the day that the LORD has made so rejoice and be glad in it. I then ask them if they would have a different attitude if they knew Jesus was with them watching all that they did.
Knowing that your work is worship will change …
1) Who or what you are working for – Your first “work of worship” is believing in Jesus.
2) What kind of work you do
3) The quality of your work
4) The quantity of your work
5) Your primary job title (ambassador for Christ)
Are you willing to make these 3 commitments to be a marketplace minister?
1) I will pray for my co-workers and boss.
2) I will do my work with excellence to worship God.
3) I will openly and publically bring Jesus to work with me.
Father, bless those who read this message to excel in their work and give glory to God wherever they are. Thank You for your promise that those who do will stand before kings (Proverbs 22:29). Bless each reader to have a ministry of paths – to be Jesus to whoever You put in their path. Thank You Jesus. Amen.
