Working for the Lord – Colossians 3:17

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” This admonition from the Apostle Paul is an assurance that you do not have to be involved in full-time ministry to be working for the Lord. Whether you are a teacher, truck driver, accountant, real estate agent, or whatever career you have, you should work hard at it and do a good job. What you are doing is for the glory of God, which gives it dignity, worth, and importance. According to this admonition every Christian is involved in full-time ministry because you should do your work in the name of Jesus—as if working for the Lord. This principle applies to both employers and employees.
