“Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you.”
II Corinthians 13:5 (NLT)
It is easy to go through a day and never exercise our faith. We get busy and before we know it, the day is over. When we look back we see that we never even thought about God. You may be thinking, “But what does God have to do with my job?” How about everything? You see, we live for God. No matter what our job is, we have a higher calling. That is what Paul was trying to say. He said to examine ourself to see if our faith is real. We live by faith; that means we work by faith. There is life and death going on everyday in every place of employment. People are in need of the love of God. Businesses need the direction of God. We make decisions every day and we need the wisdom of God. Paul wrote, “Surely you know Jesus Christ is among you.” He is saying the same to us. Aren’t we aware that Christ is among us? Jesus said it best. He said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” Life is more than our job. It is a calling, a mission, a life for Jesus Christ. He is the vine, we are the branches. Today let’s remain in Him and produce the fruit we were destined to produce.
Lord, help me keep my faith genuine. Help me today to be conscious of You in all that I do.
