Ephesians 4:1

18 January, 2024




As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.


Do you consider yourself called? It may not be into the life of the church, but maybe your employment? Does your job give you joy? Is it something you wake up each morning ready to go to? Are you doing it to the best of your ability? 

Our text today is really a vocation statement from Paul. As a prisoner of Jesus - meaning we are linked to him via our baptism – we are encouraged to do everything in life, to the best of our ability. 

So, whether it is your employment, or serving on a Sunday, or connecting with your neighbours, or visiting a member shut-in, or being respectful to your family – do it well. 

Much of what we do in life is noticed. We may not notice, but often others do, and we’ll never know about it. Our actions as a follower of Jesus, often speak louder than words. 

PRAYER : Heavenly Father, in our work and play and serving, help us to continue to live and behave as one of your loved children. When we get it wrong, please forgive us. Amen
