We just can’t give this lip service, we need to work it into the day-to-day of everyday.
How we do that is the next part.
How do we work wholeheartedly?
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2 (The Message)
Hezekiah sought his God and worked wholeheartedly.
Whatever work you’re doing, work as unto the Lord. If you’re a stay-at-home mom or retired grandparent, or you run your own business, or you serve tables, if your a professional a student or in the trades…whatever you do, it’s worship unto God.
There is no separation between the secular and the holy. You Are The Temple of the Living God! You bring God with you.
What you do matters…
…and you’ll know it matters more when you do it as unto the Lord.
So no matter what your task is, work hard. Always do your best as the Lord’s servant, not as man’s, because you know your reward is the Lord’s inheritance. You serve the Lord, the Anointed One Colossians 3:23-24 (VOICE)
Do you want to live the life you were created for? Seek God and work wholeheartedly.
