Hero Question:

“I’m currently working for an absolute jerk at work. He’s made a job I once loved into one I now hate. It’s affecting my attitude toward my wife and kids and I know it’s showing in my work. HELP!”

Ephesians 6:5–8 (ESV)

5 Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, 6 not by the way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to man, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether he is a bondservant or is free.  

Here’s some time transcending truths for a Christian serving others in the home, workplace or church:

1. Obey those that are in leadership over you as you would Jesus. < Notice the period. (vs. 5)

2. Don’t just do a good job when people are watching or just to please people. Do your work from the heart!

3. Do everything as if you were doing it for God himself. (vs. 7)

4. God will reward our faithful service to others. (vs. 8)

One Warning About Success

We shouldn’t fear success, but we should fear our reaction to it. It is well known that we readily put our complete dependance on God in the valley. It’s on the mountain top, in the warmth of the sun that the temptation to become strong in our own eyes and pull away from God is very real. We can quickly forget who brought us to the dance and leave with another….ourselves.

To overcome this we must cling to the Lord every day in his word and in prayer. True, this thought is unoriginal, but we only need to look at the boneyard of those that have shipwrecked their faith to know He is our only hope.

Show Notes:

1. Angry Words

2. Angry Actions

3. Angry Thoughts

Remember:

“The only way to deal positively with anger in the future is ask God to help us to become forgiving men today.”

1. OVERLOOK OFFENSE

Proverbs 19:11 A person’s wisdom yields patience;
it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.

Ecc. 7:21-22 Don’t pay attention to everything people say, or you may hear your servant cursing you, 22 for you know that many times you yourself have cursed others.

2. TRUST GOD TO AVENGE

Romans 12:19 19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [God’s] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord.

God is the only one who can repay fairly without becoming like the person who did the wrong in the first place.
