From your Pastor;

       Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing the from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.         
                                                          Colossians 3:23,24

     Let’s face it, work can be frustrating. We may not feel appreciated, paid enough, or that others work as hard as we do. You may feel your not making an impact on the world as if you could be doing more for the Lord.
     The church in Colossae had a mixed group of members. Some were workers, some slaves, and some business owners. Paul was addressing the slaves and workers in these verses today. He was reminding them they were really working for the Lord. 
     So we too, must remember no matter what you do to make a living, realize you are actually working or Christ. You don’t have to be a missionary or on staff at a church. Where you are right now, God wants to use you in His kingdom work. The reason a Christian can feel this way is because our reward is not a promotion or a pay raise. It is not becoming employee of the month or receive a bonus. Our reward is the inheritance of the saints. 
     “giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.”
                                                          Colossians 1:12
   This reward can never be taken away, it has much more value than anything you could ever purchase on this earth. So! When you feel like quitting, stop and remember these verses. Say a prayer and thank Jesus for making a way for you to have this inheritance. Take a deep breath and remember you’re not working for men, but for the greatest boss ever! Jesus!
