The Joy of Working Together
Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Colossians 3:17, nkjv
What task has God assigned you? Has He assigned you to
establish a home,
strengthen a marriage,
lead a family,
serve a church,
teach in a classroom,
or comfort in a sick room?
Check your attitude toward the assignment. Do you grumble and complain about it? Do you neglect and ignore it? Do you resent and reject it? Or do you enjoy fulfilling it as your service unto the Lord? God wants you and me to enjoy our service to Him, whatever it may be. And He also wants us to discuss each detail with Him as we do the work. One of His pleasures, as well as ours, is the joy of working together as we complete the task. Often, the more difficult the task, the greater the joy because it enables us to see the power of God and just what He can do in and through and for us.
