Thank God it's Monday Devotional 7

by David Joynt on September 10, 2022

COLOSSIANS 3:24 | 24 since you know that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward; you serve the Lord Christ.

EPHESIANS 6:8 | knowing that whatever good we do, we will receive the same again from the Lord, whether we are enslaved or free.

Seeing yourself as a servant who works for God is inherently rewarding. It frees us to do our best without our identities being absorbed into our work. It makes our relationships with others deeper and more meaningful. It reins in our egos and gives us a way to measure success that is independent of the sometimes arbitrary ups and downs of our careers. It gives work new significance, placing it into the sweep of salvation history.

All this and also the promise of final rewards from the Lord of life!

What is most rewarding about your work?

Ask God to help you be a servant today.
