“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:58, NIV)

Work for Jesus

When the apostle Paul tells us to fully work unto the Lord, he does not mean we must be working as missionaries in “full-time Christian effort.” He understands that all of life is holy and sacred to God. If our motive is to serve God where we are, then our labor “in the Lord is not in vain.”

As you begin your work today, ask God if you are working with the primary motive of reflecting His life and character through your work on this day. Let nothing move you from this motive being central to your activity. The Lord will reflect His power and leading in and through your life when this becomes your primary motive.

Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ.”

  2. Yes, we are all missionaries, whether we acknowledge it or not. Thanks so much for your encouragement for all of us today!


  3. I have retired from paid work, but everyday has some work for Christ in it. Every little job is an opportunity. Be blessed.


    • Every time we step outside (and much of the time we are inside) we should be working to become more like Christ. Our opportunities to share His love never end. Thanks so much for your comment. God bless! 🙂 Dave
