“In Christ Jesus, then, I have legitimate reason to glory (exult) in my work for God.” (Romans 15:17)
We work for God. Regardless of our occupation, we are in His employ. Because of this, when we experience success, it is legitimate to glory in it. In fact, we can glory in the very act of service as we work for God in the marketplace.
But what of humility? Surely the ultimate in humility is agreement with God. He says we can glory in our work, so let’s drop our false humility and enjoy it as He intended. There is nothing wrong with enjoying all His good gifts. He provides them for our enjoyment and provision and to make us effective in His kingdom.
What a privilege. If we really grasped this truth, it would revolutionise our work life.
Quick Prayer. “Thank you that I work for you.” Amen
