Spiritual Warfare: 'Work as if You Are Serving the Lord Christ'

God's Power for Our Battles — Sunday, December 22, 2024

In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for people. Remember that you will receive your reward from the Lord, which he promised to his people. You are serving the Lord Christ.
— Colossians 3:23-24 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, over and over, Your word tells me to do my best, give it all I’ve got, and remember that I’m an ambassador of Your kingdom. Forgive me for being lazy and for justifying my lack of focus on others. Remind me that every project and every job is an opportunity to bring the aroma of Christ into the lives of the people around me. Help me to make You proud, to honor Your name, and to point others to You and to the cross. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
