Why Showing Love at Work Matters - Rick Warren Daily Devotional (December-14-2022). “The quality of each person’s work will be seen when the Day of Christ exposes it. For on that Day fire will reveal everyone’s work; the fire will test it and show its real quality.” 1 Corinthians 3:13 (GNT)

God wants to use your job to make you more like Jesus. But learning Christ-like qualities such as responsibility, character, and love is never easy. To learn those things, you have to respond to people the way Jesus would—and that can be particularly difficult at work. So why should you make such an effort to become like Jesus in your job?

First, because God is going to evaluate your work one day. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:13, “The quality of each person’s work will be seen when the Day of Christ exposes it. For on that Day fire will reveal everyone’s work; the fire will test it and show its real quality” (GNT).

Everything you’ve done in your career eventually will be seen—because Christ is going to inspect it on the day of judgment. On that day, everyone’s work will be tested by fire to show the character and quality of what each person has done. So much of your work may be done without anyone seeing or watching—but God knows. He is watching, and you will give him an account for your work, no matter how menial it seems. You don’t have to always get it right. And you certainly don’t have to be the best. But you do have to work as if you’re doing it for Christ—because you really are.

Second, you should try to become more like Jesus in your work because God is going to give eternal rewards for whatever is done in love. Hebrews 6:10 says, “God is fair. He won’t forget what you’ve done or the love you’ve shown for him” (GW). You need to remember that verse every Monday morning. God is not going to forget how hard you work, how you give your best, and how you show love in his name.

Your work matters to God. One of your purposes in life is to become like Christ. And your job could be one of the most important ways God teaches you to be responsible, to develop character, and to love others. And it could be one of the most significant ways he uses you to bring others to him.

Talk It Over

  • When you’ve done a good job at work, do you want other people to know that? Why or why not?
  • How does it make you feel to know that God is always watching how you work and love others and that everything will be brought into the light one day?
  • What other people at your job might be watching to see how you treat others, even when work gets difficult? What do you want them to see in you?

Making your work matter starts with a simple prayer.

If you want to make your work matter for eternity, then you can start by saying this to God today: "Lord, I want to learn to be more responsible by keeping my promises, by meeting deadlines, by keeping my word, and by doing all of the things that show responsibility. I want to grow in character and use even the problems in my life and in my job to help me to be more patient, trusting, joyful, and to show the fruit of the Spirit. “God, please use my job to teach me how to really love people. I want to be known as a loving person. And I ask you to love people through me, even the people that I find difficult to love.”

If you've never made a decision to follow Jesus Christ, you can say to him today, "Jesus, I confess that I have lived life for myself and not for you and your purposes. I have sinned and know that you are the only way I can come to God in faith, repent, and receive salvation. I know your death on the cross and your resurrection make it possible for me to know you and love you and live with you forever one day. Please come into my life as Lord and fill me with your love. I trust you with my life, and I want to follow you the rest of my life. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen."


Planning Helps You Live With Purpose - Rick Warren Daily Devotional (November-10-2022).  “Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path.” Proverbs 4:26 (NLT)

God has a plan for your life—but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make plans too. He doesn’t want you to drift along, letting circumstances determine the direction of your life. He wants you to be intentional about the path you choose. Although the Bible gives many reasons for planning, here are three reasons that are foundational.

God makes plans.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “‘I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (NIV). God wants you to be like him. So, if God makes plans, then you should make plans too. But there’s one thing God is not: “God is not a God of disorder” (1 Corinthians 14:33 NIV). Do you have any plans for the rest of the year? The next 10 years? If you haven’t made any plans for your life, then it’s likely your life is out of order—and that’s not how God created you to live.

God expects you to plan because it is beneficial to your life.

Throughout Scripture, particularly in the book of Proverbs, the Bible talks about the value of planning your lifeProverbs 4:26 says, “Mark out a straight path for your feet” (NLT). That’s just another way of saying, “Make a plan.” God tells you to plan because he doesn’t want you to live a life of confusion as you muddle through each day. The Bible says, Everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way” (1 Corinthians 14:40 NIV).

God doesn’t want you to waste your life.

Planning is a matter of stewardship. Your life is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God. Ephesians 5:15-17 says, “Live life, then, with a due sense of responsibility, not as [those] who do not know the meaning and purpose of life but as those who do. Make the best use of your time, despite all the difficulties of these days. Don’t be vague but firmly grasp what you know to be the will of God” (PHILLIPS). The old cliché is true: If you’re failing to plan, you’re planning to fail. Take steps today toward building a better future by writing down a simple plan. Then ask God for help every day to move forward in faith.

Talk It Over

  • How can you be more like God today in the way you make plans for the week ahead?
  • What are some common barriers that might keep someone from being a planner?
  • Do you think it’s possible to over-plan? When would making too many plans cause just as many problems as making too few plans?

Correcting Misplaced Priorities - Rick Warren | June-15-2022. Do you feel like you’ve taken on too much, but don’t know what to do? One of the most common causes of discouragement is misplaced priorities. We get tired because our ultimate goals get crowded by urgent needs. This week, Pastor Rick shares how to clarify what matters most in life and reorder our priorities accordingly so that we can truly make a difference in the world today.

Where Do You Learn About Your Life Mission? - Rick Warren Daily Devotional (March-04-2023). “The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me—to tell people the Good News about God’s grace.” Acts 20:24 (NCV)

God has a significant purpose for your life. It’s called your life mission, and fulfilling it should be your primary goal in life. You weren’t put on Earth to just be a consumer, waste your time, and live an uninspired life. God has something unique for you to do. He doesn’t want you to be a consumer; he wants you to make a contribution. He wants you to make a difference. What is your life mission? The Bible says, “The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me—to tell people the Good News about God’s grace” (Acts 20:24 NCV). God’s mission for you is “to tell people the Good News about God’s grace.” And the best place to learn how to do that is in your church family. You likely won’t learn how to fulfill your life mission at a business, in a school, or around your neighborhood. But it’s the job of your pastor and church family to help you do what God put you on Earth to do. When you get to heaven, God isn’t going to ask about your church denomination. He’s more likely to ask, “What did you do with what I gave you? Did you use it to serve others? Did you ‘go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone’ (Mark 16:15 NCV)?” God has a ministry in the church and a mission in the world for you to fulfill. He wants to use your church family to prepare you to join his global mission. When you belong to a church family, they help you fulfill God’s purpose for your life.

Popular sermons online

As the concept suggests, a preacher is one who practices the art of preaching. The word "preaching" is originally associated with the religious sphere of activity. Language researchers note that of all religious texts, this word - like the type of activity itself - is most closely associated with Christianity. Preachers teach Bible truths when speaking to believers or unbelievers. 

Most of the Bible's sermons are in the New Testament. The sermon, as we find it in the Book of Acts and the Epistles, is expressive, but at the same time brief. It is built on the fundamental truths of Christianity: the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The preaching of the Church, in whatever form it is delivered - be it an ardent call to repentance for sins and salvation or the gospel story of a relationship with God and people - is by nature Christocentric.

Christian online preaching isn’t just a statement of spiritual truths, but as a sacred act, during which the preacher, in cooperation with the Lord the Holy Spirit, accomplishes the work of salvation for unbelieving listeners and the process of spiritual growth for the saved. Words spoken by a person cannot strengthen faith, but the biblical sermon in the mouths of preachers has a special power that can transform a person's soul. It is on this supernatural power of preaching that the preacher's authority is established.

Despite the fact that the evangelical Church teaches about the priesthood of every born-again Christian, in the work of biblical preaching, special attention is paid to the character and moral character of the preacher. The moral right to proclaim eternal biblical truths, to preach the Gospel from the pulpit or in another setting on behalf of the Church, can not only be those who know these truths, but who have Christian virtues, a character that reflects Christ. We are talking about a person who sincerely loves God and the people to whom he addresses, deeply interested in the eternal and earthly well-being of his listeners. A person with the good name of a Christian, who has a "good testimony" confirmed by time and the Church. Since we are talking about eternal, enduring truths, the writing of which was inspired by the holy God, proclaim them on behalf of the Author, i.e. of God Himself, it is permissible for the one who knows Him personally, has constant communion with Him and obeys Him implicitly. From the point of view of the essence and basis of the message that he proclaims, the preacher is not the author of his message and therefore doesn’t have the right to change the truths being proclaimed. He represents the interests and fulfills the will of the One who authorized him for this with the authority of His glorious name, and, therefore, the preacher is obliged to accurately convey to his audience what was entrusted to him by God. Freely interpreting Scripture and presenting to the audience their own interpretation of eternal biblical truths, posing as God's revelation on behalf of God, is not only a distortion of the truth, but also an ethical violation that entails consequences. However, in the sermon, it is not forbidden to mention personal experience, as well as the experience of other people, examples from various areas of public life to the extent that these examples correspond to the truth and contribute to a more accurate and understandable message of it.  

Of course, in the modern world, taking into account the development of communications, a preacher is expected to possess the skills of oratory. This is not a strict requirement, but it is always encouraged, as it is an undeniable advantage and serves the greater benefit and success of the preaching work.

There are many preachers in modern Christianity who have achieved recognized success in the preaching work.
