Work as Worship

Work, the God-given ability to use our strength and energy to sustain and enhance life for ourselves and others, is a gift of God. God Himself is a God who works. He worked to create the universe, He worked to create a people for Himself, and He is at work to establish His kingdom among us.

He is at work in you and me, gifting, equipping, empowering, and shaping us to work alongside Him in accomplishing the work He is doing. Let this perspective turn your work into worship, today and every day.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving   thanks to God the Father through him. -Colossians 3:17

Prayer: God, thank You for being at work in this world, and for inviting us to work alongside You in accomplishing Your work. May we represent Jesus well-at home, at work, in Your church, and in Your world-as we work and pray in His name, amen.
