Who’s the Boss?

Your boss is not really your boss; your boss is Jesus.

There are two things I want you to see in our verses today.

First, it says, “Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” (Colossians 3:23 NLT) It’s easier to be enthusiastic about your job when you turn the focus of your work from “I’m doing this for my boss” or “I’m doing this for a paycheck” to “I’m doing this for the Lord,” With that in mind you can do anything – scrape paint, wash dishes, repair a car – and turn it into worship.

Second, when you turn your work into worship, you start storing up credits in heaven. Colossians 3:24 says, “Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and the Master you are serving is Christ.” (Colossians 3:24 NLT) As you work for God, you are making eternal deposits in heaven.

“So whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV) It doesn’t matter if you’re rearranging papers or signing bills, any job can become an act of worship if you do it enthusiastically for God.
