Turn Your Work Into Worship

In summary of Colossians 3:23-24 it says, “Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. The Lord will provide you with an inheritance as your reward, and the Master you are serving is Christ.”

Bottom Line:
Whatever you do, put your whole heart and soul into it, do it willingly and as though you were serving the Lord himself, and not just your boss.  It is the Lord Christ that you are really serving, and you know that he will reward you

What this means to me:
I need to constantly remember that any work I do is ultimately for the Lord regardless of who I report to here on earth. My boss is not my boss, my real boss is Jesus.  Because of this I work with a higher standard.  The Lord sees everything, even when no one else is looking.  I always want to do my best for him.  Also what I do is a reflection of my relationship with Him and the visible part that others can see and notice a difference in.  It is much easier for me to approach my day when the focus of my work is in doing it for the Lord.  It would make even the mundane tasks better, even a form of worship.  Today I really need to shift my focus with this reminder and perhaps knock out those long overdue tasks which have been lingering and procrastinating on for a while.
