LIVE FOR GOD

Ephesians 6:5-9 NKJV

  5 Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ;
  6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,
  7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,
  8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
  9 And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.

BONDSERVANTS
   As Bondservants (people under authorities) we must diligently obey authorities and perform our duties as they expect us to. We should carry out our duties as they expect us to, without complaints but with sincerity of heart. We should neither do it as men-pleasers nor as an eye service. We should rather discharge our duties with goodwill as if we are giving our services to God....verse 8 says it all.

MASTERS
   As Master or people with authorities and power, we should not victimise our subordinates we should not threaten them neither should we exploit them. Every master or every persons with power and authorities should also remember they have a master in heaven (that is Jesus Christ) who treats everyone (both bondservants and masters) with love without partiality.

   So, no matter who you are Bondservants or Masters, live your lives to please God and for God only. He rewards good work without partiality and whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or a master.

THANK YOU
HAVE A GREAT DAY
