Ephesians 6:7-8

Good morning!

Ephesians 6:7-8: Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is a slave or free.

Imagine if everything we did was as if Jesus Himself was standing right there next to us. How awesome would our prayers be? How quickly would all the everyday things that become more important to us melt away? Gossip would never begin in the first place. Hate-filled words would be quickly silenced and replaced with uplifting and loving words. Meaningless quarrels between friends and families would cease and deep relationships would grow in their place.

I believe God wants us to use that word wholeheartedly a lot more often! If we are serving, praying, loving, believing, and trusting wholeheartedly, it means we are completely and sincerely devoted, determined and enthusiastic! If we pursue everything wholeheartedly, then we are completely committed, free from all reserve or hesitation. We need to stop worrying about what everyone around us thinks or says about us. For it is God we are living for and working for and serving for. He will reward those who do good in His name. He wants to see hearts that are open and willing to do His will!

Will you incorporate this word more as an adjective that describes you? I will if you will!
