I am sure this article will provoke deep reflections in some of my readers as I share my opinion on the “Work of God.” What is the Work of God? So many Christians think that the Work of God is the voluntary responsibilities one takes in a church. Permit me to show you that the Work of God is more than that.
The Work of God is anything you do to improve the lives of those made in the image of God i.e. fellow human beings. It is not limited to the service you render in a church. Remember that you cannot see God, but you can see human beings made in His image. You cannot be active in your church but not active in society or at least your neighborhood. [Yes, I agree that the church is a part of society, but your talents, ideas, and efforts are needed more in the larger society.]
The Work of God is what a driver does when he drives his/her passengers carefully without recklessly cutting their destines short in an accident. It is what an evaluation professional does when s/he helps to evaluate the impact of an intervention on the lives of the beneficiaries made in the image of God. It is the work of God that a teacher does by teaching pupils diligently thereby helping them shape their future. It is what a nurse does when s/he cares for sick patients till they recover their fitness. It the work of God that a pilot does when s/he takes a plane carrying human beings made in the image of God and grants them safe landing. It is the work of God when a banker helps his/her clients to make profitable investments to avoid poverty. These are examples of what it means to Work for God.
To make your life count, you must see your work/job as the Work of God. Render your services with godliness and sincerity of heart, and God in heaven will be smiling because you are doing His Work.
