The Christian Public Servant – “these three godly actions”

April 5, 2018 – Thursday

Reading

Colossians 3:14-16 [ESV] And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Reflection

Wow! How do you experience the benefits of harmony in relationships? A deep sense of peace? An overwhelming emotion of gratitude? How can you experience the benefits of harmony in relationships – especially where you work?

The answer is simple. Apply these three godly actions: (1) Work godly love into your relationships. (2) Submit to God’s peace. (3) Feast on the Word with prayer and thanksgiving.

Scripture reminds us that Jesus has created life for us in order that we might live in His love, indulge in His peace, and be amazingly overwhelmed by the riches of His Word.

Today at work, don’t hold back! Engage in these three godly actions.

Commit to the work-life Jesus intends for you every day!

Prayer

Father, I seek to be amazingly overwhelmed by the riches of You today at work. Give me strength to apply these three godly actions throughout my day. In Your Son, I pray. Amen.
