4-2-17 “On the Job”

SOMETIMES WE MISS WHAT’S RIGHT OVER OUR HEADS.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE BOSS.

1- EMPLOYEE’S ANGLE 3:22-25

PRODUCTIVITY – DO IT! – 3:22-23

3:22 CALLS FOR WHOLEHEARTED OBEDIENCE.

BOSSES WANT ONE THING ABOVE ALL ELSE: WORK!

YOU HAVE TWO BOSSES.

PLEASE HEAVENLY; OBEY EARTHLY.

THE FIRST PHRASE STANDS OUT BECAUSE IT’S ALL-ENCOMPASSING. (I Cor. 10:31,

Col. 3:17 & 23)

THE SECOND PHRASE STANDS OUT BECAUSE IT LICENSES US TO GO ALL-
IN!!

PAYDAY – GET IT! – 3:24-25

3:24 PROMISES THAT GOD WILL REWARD.

3:25 PROMISES THAT GOD WILL REPAY.

2- EMPLOYER’S ANGLE 4:1

JUSTICE – GIVE IT!

WORKERS USUALLY WANT ONE THING ABOVE ALL ELSE: CREDIT!

JUDGMENT – KNOW IT!

FAITH MAKES A DIFFERENCE AT WORK.

WORK MAY BE YOUR #1 MISSION FIELD.
