WHAT WE DO

Pastor Steve Lummer

Part 2

How To Work With Those You Work With

duller the ax the harder the work;  Use your head: The more brains, the less muscle. Ecclesiastes 10:10 (message)

“Work hard and cheerfully at all you do, just as though you were working for the Lord, and not merely for your masters, remembering it is the Lord who’s going to pay you… He’s the one you are really working for.” Col. 3:23-24 (LB)

“Anything you’ve done for one of My brothers here, however humble, you’ve done for Me.” Mt. 25:40 (NEB)

We serve God by REFLECTING HIM IN OUR WORK PLACE.

WHY IT ALL  STARTS WITH YOU

1. It makes life MEANINGFUL.

“…long ago God planned that we should spend our lives in helping others.” Eph. 2:10 (LB)

“Have our people learn to give their time in doing good, to provide for real needs…not live useless

lives.” Titus 3:14 (GN)

2. It makes CHRIST TANGIBLE TO OTHERS .

“Look out for each other’s interests, not just for your own. The attitude you should have is the one that

Jesus Christ had.” Ph. 2:4-5 (GN)

(Jesus) “I didn’t come to be served, but to serve…”Mt. 20:28

3. I will be rewarded FOR ETERNITY.

“Well done, good and faithful servant! You’ve been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of

many things. Come share your Master’s happiness!”

HOW TO CHANGE THE CULTURE WHERE YOU WORK

1. ACCEPT PEOPLE others unconditionally

“Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” Rom. 15:7 (NIV)

2. ENCOURAGE  others continually

“Encourage one another and build each other up…”1 Th. 5:11 (NIV)

“… speak only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Eph. 4:29 (NIV)

3. FORGIVE  others freely

“Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” Col. 3:13 (NIV)

4. HELP others willingly

“Whenever you possibly can, do good to those who need it. Never tell your neighbor to wait until tomorrow if you can help him now. Pr. 3:27-28 (GN)

Closing challenge: Go back to work this week with a new JOB DESCRIPTION  and a new TITLE.
