Employees that are In Demand
Colossians 3:22-25, “Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
This is a Biblical principle that if followed would leave no Christian of working age and in working health unemployed.
What employer would not want to hire someone who works heartily (done from the heart, with zeal, vigorously) and is punctual, consistent, polite, gentle, and humble with wisdom that is God – given?
One of the goals as a Christian employee should be to have our employer’s best interest in our mind and work so that he is successful.
I feel what has hurt Christians in employment opportunities is someone professing to be a Christian in the work place who really is only a Christian wanna be, or someone who feels using the name of Jesus will promote his agenda.
Christian employees, unless specifically hired to do so, should not use their work place as a platform to preach to the unconverted. This should be done; but on their time, not their employer’s time. The Christian employee should be an example of integrity and diligence not one who is slothful and untrustworthy when left alone to complete a task. The Christian should be thankful for employment and complaining would not be the way to show thankfulness.
Oh, if those who name the name of Jesus would labor for their employers as they would for the Lord, the employers would be calling for more Christians! Send more Christians! And while not all would be in agreement with the Christian’s theology, they would none the less be blessed by his work ethic – a properly lived out theology.
