Christians in the Workplace
January 3 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
Ephesians 6:5-8 says, “Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.”
The Bible says you are to serve your boss as if he or she were Jesus Christ. When you walk through the door, you are to enter with the same enthusiasm for your boss as you have for your church. You say, I can’t do it. Why he is not a Christian. She is not right with God. How can I serve her as if she were Jesus Christ?
If Christians would begin to live like that on Monday, people would start believing what preachers say on Sunday. When a man goes to the employment agency and he needs somebody to work for him, he ought to say, “By the way do you have any Christians? If so, send them over. Those are the kind of people I want.”
Well, that is not human nature to do that. Instead, human nature dictates that we are to get all we can, can all we can get, sit on the lid, and poison the rest. So, how are you going to serve your boss? “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).
