Heart attitude
(The Philippine Star) - February 1, 2015 - 12:00am

Not with eyeservice, as men pleasers, but as bondservants, of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. — Ephesians 6:6                               

I love watching the skill and passion of great athletes as they give their all on the field. It shows the love for the game. Conversely when a long season is winding down and a team is already eliminated from an opportunity for championship or playoff games, sometimes it seems the players are merely “going through the motions.” Their lack of passion can be disappointing to fans who had paid to watch a good game.

Passion is a key aspect of our personal lives as well. Our heart attitude toward the Lord is revealed in how we served Him. The apostle Paul said  that our service include the way we go about our daily work. In Ephesians 6:6-7, we read that  we are to approach our work, “not with eye service, as men pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men.”

For me, the key in that verse is “from the heart.” I have a heavenly Father who loves me deeply and sacrificed  His Son for me. How can I do anything less than give my very best for Him? The passion to live for God that comes “from the heart” provides our best response to the One who has done so much for us.   — Bill Crowder

Father, every day offers opportunities for me to express my love for You. May the passion with which I live, work, serve, and relate to others be a fitting expression of my gratitude for Your love for me. In Jesus name, amen.
