23 Whatever you do, do it from the heart, as something done for the Lord and not for people, 24 knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ. 25 For the wrongdoer will be paid back for whatever wrong he has done, and there is no favoritism.
Paul states that in all things, ALL THINGS, do it from the heart with good intentions and don’t do it for your benefit or to please people but do it for the Lord, and there will be a reward from the Lord that will fulfill every need. It’s also a reminder to only do good, for wrongdoers will be paid back for their wrongdoing.
While this passage can seem so intimidating, it’s also very refreshing. We get to serve the Lord. This servanthood isn’t like anything we know of, we are no longer in captivity but He has set us free and in that freedom we get to serve our God. Remind yourself this week, what is God calling me to be obedient in and am I resisting? His call on our life to be His servants is one we have to take seriously and obedient in every matter. Rejoice that while you have a Master in heaven you are free today and always will be.
Lord I am so grateful to be a servant in Your kingdom, remind me more and more each day to pour my heart out in obedience to what You’re calling me to. Help me to become a better servant because all I want in my life is to please You.
