Your Life is Not Insignificant

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23

There are many things that we do in life on a daily basis that we may find mundane. Some of us work at mundane jobs, some of us take mundane classes, some of us have the same mundane schedule and seem to be doing the same thing over and over again. We operate within the “daily grind.” Just in and out, same thing over and over again.

This passage in Colossians offers a whole lot of hope to some of us who may feel that way. Paul writes that whatever we do, we should do with all our hearts, not serving men, but serving the Lord.

What he’s saying is this: anything you do, when you do it for the glory of Jesus, suddenly becomes very significant and meaningful.

That thing you do on a daily basis, that job you work at, those chores you perform every day, those things may not mean much in it of themselves, but when you do those things for the glory of Jesus, mundane things become important.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s big or small, exciting or mundane, for many people or few one person, you can impart eternity on the things you do when you redeem anything you do.

So go ahead- drive your car for the glory of Jesus. Respond to that email for the glory of Jesus. Change that diaper for the glory of Jesus. Have conversations for the glory of Jesus.

And when you set this attitude as your pattern of life, you will find that you will really comforted by this truth: that contrary to the perhaps mundaneness of your daily activities, your life will not be insignificant!
