Our Work Is A Place of Worship Toward God!
Serving God Through Our Work
Jesus is the Creator God who spoke all things in to existence. The Apostle Paul who daily walked with Jesus spiritually said, " 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence." (Col 1:15-18).
This means that Jesus can be all things to all men. The reason all things were created through Jesus was for Him to enjoy all things. He is the intiator of all good things, including the different fields of science, commerce, technology.. and theology. In Jesus we will be able to find the reason of how all things can relate to each other and still become one. Jesus is heading a spiritual body now on earth named as the Church, in which all those who approach Him will find meaning and significance to their small life one earth. Our life have been bought back from sin and the world by Jesus and is ready to be used for higher purpose of fullfilling God's purpose on planet earth in which Jesus stands as the forerunner by having fullfilled the perfect will of God on behalf of us. Jesus will now work the will of God in us through our lives on earth for the glory of God.
Jesus is a multi-faceted personality who has something for every one who comes to him. He relates to the capacity of each person intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. I found this following writing interesting and also exemplary. No matter whether we are in full time ministry or in extra time ministry of serving professionally in the work place and also serving the Lord as a work place minister, Jesus wants to use our mouth, ears, eyes, hands and feet to touch those people who are hungry for God. Just read and enjoy what Jesus can be to each different professionals, inanimate things and to the ultimate Christian.

You can make a difference in this world, if you choose to relate to Jesus in different capacities and express it to the world which always expects something supernatural and real to make their life meaningful. God has people in the buisness arenas to be touched through the market place ministers of our generation. You don't have to be a full time minister to serve the Lord in full capacity, you can serve Him from your workplace itself in full capacity. All believers are Kingly-priests who are supposed to do the work of the ministry and fullfill their calling as a part of the Universal Church Body (Rev 1:6; 1 Peter 4:10-11). So what are you waiting for, start working by giving your body as a living sacrifice to Jesus so that He will start to use your body parts to touch someone who is in need of His love, grace and truth (Rom 12:1; John 1:17). OUR WORK IN THE SECULAR WORLD AS WELL AS WITH IN THE CHURCH IS A PART OF OUR WORSHIP TOWARD GOD THROUGH WHICH GOD UNFOLDS HIS CUSTOM DESIGNED PURPOSE FOR US IN OUR LIVES. So why not do it whole heartedly for JESUS who has given us all things to acheive great thing in our lives, which also follows us for eternity ahead. Praise the Lord!
