Vocational Vision

Who do you work for?

Your answer to that question will quickly identify your motivation for waking up each morning. What if you decided that you work for Jesus? What if you allowed Jesus to become your boss?

“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.” Eph 6:7-8 (NIV)

The reality is that Jesus is your boss if you have made Him Lord of your life. His Lordship in your life is a measurement of your followership. If you are following Jesus and serving Him wholeheartedly, then He is your boss. You are not working for an earthly boss. You are not trying to please or appease an earthly boss. Your passion is to please your ultimate boss, Jesus.

Jesus rewards your work. Jesus is keeping up with all you do and all you say. He knows when you have gone the extra mile and He knows when you have not given your best. Jesus sees what no one else sees. You may not receive the compensation from your earthly boss that you desire or deserve. However, Jesus is the One who gives you ultimate compensation for your work. Jesus rewards you!

When you are on your way to work, begin to visualize who you are working for. Now, begin to see that Jesus is the One you are seeking to please. Jesus is the One whom you are working for. Jesus is your boss!

Would you allow your vocational vision to be formed by your boss, Jesus?

Pursuing God,
