Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, speaks to us about extra work, and extraordinary work. The extra work is going that extra mile, giving a little more than is required, etc. The extraordinary work is that part that we read about in the Bible: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,…” (Col. 3:23)
When I read this, I think about the fact that Jesus said, “Lo, I am with you always.” That puts a whole new spin on things. It’s so much more than serving cheerfully, or going the extra mile willingly and ungrudging. It’s about ownership. “My Father owns the Earth and the fullness thereof. That changes one’s outlook a little, doesn’t it? Yeah, I’m part owner of this whole thing. WOWWWWW! That’s an awesome thing!
No, it doesn’t mean you can run over everyone. It does mean you should be proud of your work, whatever and wherever that may be. It means you are at an advantage, intellectually, and spiritually-when you keep this attitude. It means you are working with the Lord as a partner. Yes, we have protocol to follow too. But, oh, the glorious rewards that come with this. It isn’t just a job…it’s a business, darling; a business. The King of kings and Lord of lords…and you!
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
