Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
I don’t know how long the rower had been rowing when he came into my view, but it must have been a good feeling to see that shore and know that he was going to make it before the sun set behind the trees. The reward was in sight.
We work every day. Sometimes work seems like something that we are forced to do, with no reward in sight. Sunset is coming and it is hard to keep going. Paul wrote these words of encouragement to the church at Colossae which would have been filled with many slaves forced to do work for masters that may not have appreciated their work. He challenged them to do their work as if they were doing it for the Lord. Looking at work this way gave them a way to see a purpose and reward for their work. The shore was in sight for they were serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
When we face hardships in our work help us to remember to do our work for you. Give us strength to work hard and the joy that comes from knowing that the reward is in sight for we are working for our great and loving master, Jesus Chris.
