God’s Business

“I must be where my Father’s work is.” (Lk.2)

Jesus described his work as “being about my Father’s business.” What was he referring to? He was focusing on the work he was sent to do.

Christ said, “With the bigger picture in front and before me, I knew time was short and life was closing in around me. I had to look beyond the trivial and make a decision and stick to it; regardless of which way the wind of the world was blowing.”

The Work:

When called to do the work there are two choices to consider:

Will you be about God’s business or will you be about the world’s business?

If you choose the latter, you will stumble along the way and waste precious time on nothing.

Christ encourages us to not squander our peace regardless of the circumstances.

Reflection: “Am I doing the will of the one who sent me in order to finish His work?” (Jn. 4)

 

The Nature of the Work

“He gave some to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers!” (Eph. 4)

Who do I call? I have called you by name and you are mine.
What is the “Nature of the Work?” This is about being called by God and stepping into the work.
I am bringing you into the work and you will soon find out what the nature of the work means and is, in your life.
The work is eternal because life is eternal; heaven is eternal. You get to walk it out.
Don’t fret about what is or what is not; just be and keep moving forward.
In this context, the nature of the work moves along whether you are aware of it or not.

“The nature of your work is now taking shape and form.” (PAZ)
