Your Boss Is Not Really Your Boss

“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.” (Colossians 3:23-24 NLT, second edition)

Your boss is not really your boss. Your boss is Jesus.

The Bible says, “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ” (Colossians 3:23-24 NLT, second edition).

There are two things I want you to see in today’s verse:

First, you will have a better attitude about work once you understand that, no matter where you work or who you work for, your real boss is Jesus.

It’s easier to be enthusiastic about your job when you stop thinking, “I’m doing this for my boss” or “I’m doing this for a paycheck” and instead start thinking, “I’m doing this for the Lord.” By understanding that truth, you can do anything — from running a company to washing dishes — and turn it into an act of worship.

Second, when you turn your work into worship, you start storing up credits in Heaven. As you work for God, you are making eternal deposits in Heaven.

It doesn’t matter if you’re vacuuming the rug, repairing a car, serving in the military, or managing an office, any job can become an act of worship if you do it enthusiastically for God: “So whatever you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV).
