As we near the end of our discussion, we have learned that we have every reason to enjoy the season God has us in. Like Paul, it does not make us any less ministers and like Jesus, we are salt and light in a world that desperately needs truth. We even see that Jesus addressed many of his messages to those in the mainstream, work-a-day life-because it is where the need is. If you are still feeling bad with the fact that you like being in the work place…I hope our last reason will put you at ease.
Reason 4: ‘Whatever’ in the Greek means…Whatever!
Whatever in the Greek means…Whatever! Colossians 3:23 states “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters”. Throwing it back to the Greek, the word we read as whatever is hos, which translates as “who, which, what, that”. Seems like an all-encompassing definition if you ask me.
So you are literally under divine order to embrace what God has given you to do whole-heartedly. Not to mention that, seeing as God is more about the heart than the action (Ps. 40:5- 7), there is a difference between obeying and doing something with your whole heart.
As a last word of encouragement, whether you enjoy the challenge of a day job or you are challenged to enjoy it, know that this season is where you are meant to be. You are daily being equipped to run your race, not someone elses. And that, my friends, is a freeing thought indeed.
