Be Faithful in Service to one another (Mark 10:43-45) Keyword: Honor - is a type of worth...by which one is shown great respect and admiration Biblical ways to show honor: 2 types (God and Others) Honoring God 1. Honor him with worship (Rev. 5:11-12) 2. Honor him with obedience (Eze. 33:31) 3. Honor him with one's own body (Rom. 12:1) 4. Honor him with one's possessions (2Cor. 4:10-11) 5. Honor him by caring for others (James 1:27) Consequences of not honoring God (Mal. 2:2 - curses, Nu. 20:12 - blessings cut off - , Dan. 5:22-31 - destruction) Honoring others as a duty to God 1. Honor with respect for one another (Rom. 12:10) 2. Honor with loving regard (husbands to wives) (1Pet. 3:7) 3. Honoring parents with obedience (Eph. 6:2) and financial support if needed (Matt. 7:10) 4. Honor faithful widows/elders with financial provisions (1Tim. 5) 5. Honor the state with taxes and obedience in the Lord (Rom. 13:7) 6. Honor masters with willing service (1Tim. 6:1-2) Q&A As a Christian, how do you view your purpose in the workplace? A Christian’s whole life is should be considered spiritual and sacred. That is, God centered. Possible answers: - A place where I go to make money to provide for my needs. - A place where I go to make money to provide for my family's needs. - A place where I go to contribute my talent in order to be served. Biblical responses: - A place where I go to worship God through service. - A place where I go to serve others. - A place where I go lift up God's name. - A place where I go to demonstrate the power of the Gospel. - A place of evangelism. - A sacred place. How does poor service affect the Gospel? God's name - The giver of the gospel Our doctrine - The teachings of God's gospel. We teach that not only does the gospel deliver from the penalty and power of sin, but also the practice of sin. How do you deal with a mean boss? Ans. 1 Pet. 2:11 – have everyone turn to that passage. What are some advantages or disadvantages to working with someone with the same faith as yours? Pastor Scott listed some perfumes that stink in a work environment. (Gossip, Ridicule, Obnoxiousness, Criticism) What are some perfumes that smell good and are pleasent in a work environment? 1. Diligence (Ecc. 9:10; Prov. 10:4) 10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; 4 He becomes poor who works with a slack and idle hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich. 2. Faithfulness (1 Cor. 4:2) 2 Moreover, it is [essentially] required of stewards that a man should be found faithful [proving himself worthy of trust]. 3. Honesty (Tit. 2:9-10) 9 [Tell] bond servants to be submissive to their masters, to be pleasing and give satisfaction in every way. [Warn them] not to talk back or contradict, 10 Nor to steal by taking things of small value, but to prove themselves truly loyal and entirely reliable and faithful throughout, so that in everything they may be an ornament and do credit to the teaching [which is] from and about God our Savior. 4. Obedience (Eph. 6:5) 5 Servants (slaves), be obedient to those who are your physical masters, having respect for them and eager concern to please them, in singleness of motive and with all your heart, as [service] to Christ [Himself]-- 5. Perseverance (2Thess. 3:12-13) 12 Now we charge and exhort such persons [as ministers in Him exhorting those] in the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) that they work in quietness and earn their own food and other necessities. 13 And as for you, brethren, do not become weary or lose heart in doing right [but continue in well-doing without weakening]. 6. Respect (1Tim. 6:1-2; 1Peter 2:18) 18 [You who are] household servants, be submissive to your masters with all [proper] respect, not only to those who are kind and considerate and reasonable, but also to those who are surly (overbearing, unjust, and crooked). 7. Willingness (Eph. 6:6-7) 6 Not in the way of eye-service [as if they were watching you] and only to please men, but as servants (slaves) of Christ, doing the will of God heartily and with your whole soul; 7 Rendering service readily with goodwill, as to the Lord and not to men, These are the qualities that can turn a work environment from a place of work to a place of worship. Examples of these qualites : Gen. 30-27-30; 39: 2-4 Does God give performance evaluations? Col. 3:22-24 - 22 Servants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not only when their eyes are on you as pleasers of men, but in simplicity of purpose [with all your heart] because of your reverence for the Lord and as a sincere expression of your devotion to Him. 23 Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, 24 Knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [and not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [real] reward. [The One Whom] you are actually serving [is] the Lord Christ (the Messiah). Closing - if you were to stand before the throne of God tonight, what would your performance evaluation be?
