It is clear, as we read Scripture, that most, if not all the principles taught in God’s Word would never fit into this world’s systems. Read these two references and ask yourself if they would fit into the policies of the company or busines where you work today.
“Bondservants [employees], obey your earthly masters [employers] with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart” (Ephesians 6:5–6).
“Bondservants [employees], obey in everything those who are your earthly masters [employers], not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord” (Colossians 3:22).
Many employers might love employees like this, but this type of attitude is definitely not the normal way of thinking in our day. As followers of Jesus, shouldn’t this be the natural fruit of following Jesus as His disciple? Notice in both Scriptures, Paul presses the point about having a “sincere heart” which is a direct result of the Spirit working in us.
In this, God will be glorified, because He is being represented.
