Today's Prayer

O Lord, may I keep your testimonies and forever seek you with my whole heart. I pray that I will do no iniquity and I will walk in your ways always. Help me and instruct me. I want to know and keep your precepts diligently. O that my ways were directed to keep your statutes! Then I will not be ashamed, when I have respect for all thy commandments. I will praise you with uprightness of heart. Thank you for teaching me and for promising to never forsake me, Lord. In your holy name I pray, amen. (adapted from Psalm 119:1-8)


Worship and Work
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 2, by Os Hillman
10-30-2014

"One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike" (Rom 14:5).

Avodah (Ah´-voe-dah) is a Hebrew noun used in the Bible that has two distinct yet intertwined meanings: worship and work. It is also derived from the Hebrew verb L'Avod which has two meanings; to work and also to worship. The dual meaning offers powerful wisdom for modern times for how we are to view our work lives.

Work, if done with integrity and unto God, is a form of worship in the biblical Hebrew context. There has never been a concept of segmenting our work from our faith life in the Bible. It is in the realm of the sacred to bring God into our everyday life. Hebrews did not set aside a "day of worship," such as Saturday or Sunday, but everyday is a place and time of worship. They did set aside a Sabbath day of rest.

It is a western idea to segment one's faith life from our work like. In the Middle East and Asia, their cultures would never separate their faith from their work life even though their faith foundations might clearly contradict Christian beliefs. When someone comes to faith in Christ from this area of the world, they have an easier time of assimilating their faith into their work because they have always done so.

God calls us to do our work as an act of worship to Him. Our work is not to be a place of sweat and toil, but an expression of our love, faith and adoration of Jesus Christ. Today, before you work, ask God to help you see your work in a new way--as worship to Him.
