Work and Serve out of Love
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
We Work and Serve out of Love
1 John 4:16 – And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:8 – He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
We are made in God’s IMAGE.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:26-27
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created. Genesis 5:1-2
So, what is God’s image?
God is LOVE. HIS image and likeness is love. To understand God’s LOVE, we must to be born again into HIS LIKENESS of LOVE.
So, how do we serve?
We serve out of LOVE.
14 Beyond all these things put on and wrap yourselves in [unselfish] love, which is the perfect bond of unity [for everything is bound together in agreement when each one seeks the best for others]. Colossians 3:14 AMP
If we miss being LOVE, we miss the entire purpose of Jesus coming to earth.
23 Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve. Colossians 3:23-24 AMP
We are LOVE BEINGS made in the image and likeness of God. When we allow the LOVE of GOD to permeate our entire soul and mind, then our work and service is manifested out of the GOD’s LOVE. We are actually serving the Lord Jesus Christ when we love and serve others.
