When I read what Jesus said, it opened my mind. He was challenging the Jews who were giving him a hard time. John 6:26. He said working for him is better than working for food. It made me realise, it is so true! Working for Jesus, is the best job in the world, better than diamonds, money, or anything in the world. It seems like anyone who works for Jesus is put in a higher position by God above any other position in the world. And the position is free to anyone who wants it and nothing can take it away. He is the Boss of all. He eventually promotes you to eternity. Isn’t that wonderful? Millions are doing just that.
And he says, to be promoted, first you have to believe in him, and do what he says. For, he has been given authority by God to judge. He is the King of all, God put him in a high position which is above all angels and humanity. The Holy Bible says, ‘ every knee will bow before him’. Philippians 2:10.
So, it is with anyone who loves God, and goes on to share the good news about Jesus to someone, Mathew 28:17-20. When you work for him, he is your Boss, for without him it is impossible to please God. Working for Jesus is the same as working for Jehovah God the Father, the creator of heaven and earth. For what Jesus says, is exactly what God says!
In our secular working environments, we are slaves to who we work for. Workers normally want to please the boss, by making sure they do a job properly, so that they can keep their place in the company, or get a promotion and a pay rise. No one desires to be sacked, especially when they know the job is their lively-hood.
So the same with Jesus, he has the power to sack you if you don’t listen to him, also to approve who is fit to enter into God’s kingdom and who isn’t, because God gave him that authority. John 15:2
When it comes to salvation, first of all, he said, ‘you must be born again’ John 3, which means a total transformation… before you didn’t know, now you know, before you didn’t understand (spiritual blindness) now you understand, before you didn’t have the Holy Spirit now you have it. Before you didn’t listen to God now you listen. Before you didn’t walk in his guidance now you walk. Before you didn’t care about being saved now you do. And then he mentions, water baptism as a symbol of commitment, (it is like signing a contract of salvation). Acts 2:38, and chap.3:23
