Doing the Will of God
Topic: Work Passage: Ephesians 6:5–6:7
What's true for carpenters is true for health care professionals, educators, stay at home moms and everyone else. At Christ Community we want to be a church that speaks to every area of life including your work life. The Bible has a lot to say about our work life and it's not just that we should do good work, but that you should do good work with good reasons and a good attitude. At the heart of it all is faith in Christ and the gospel.
5 Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, 6 not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a bondservant or is free. 9 Masters, do the same to them, and stop your threatening, knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with him.
