Last week the focus was working for God at our jobs, now let’s consider how we do God’s work. Are you working towards His purpose?
What is God’s work? It doesn’t have to be a mysterious theological discussion. Follow Bible teaching, especially the words of Jesus. Spend quiet time in prayer and Bible study. Start with the basics and see how God guides you along the way.
Find a purpose that excites you. Operate in kindness, volunteer, be an example of a peaceful spirit. When an opportunity arrives, be generous, caring, available and willing to help. Simple attentiveness to another person can have a big impact. Representing God’s care happens within our family, our neighborhood, our communities, and at our jobs.
Ephesians 2:7-10, Living Bible: “And now God can always point to us as examples of how very, very rich his kindness is, as shown in all he has done for us through Jesus Christ. Because of his kindness, you have been saved through trusting Christ. And even trusting is not of yourselves; it too is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good we have done, so none of us can take any credit for it. It is God himself who has made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others.”
