Who's Your Employer?

When two of the most entertaining reality broadcast shows came on the same day at the same hour, “America’s Next Top Model” (ANTM) and “The Apprentice”, I have to say, as much as I appreciate beauty and fashion, ANTM was no competition to The Apprentice. I loved it! The intensity of applying one’s knowledge, skills and experience to creative projects, while working for one of the top employers in America seemed so engaging; And as much as the competitors dreaded to hear the iconic exiting phrase, we the viewers waited an hour just to hear it, “You’re Fired”! 

When I think about my personal reality show, I would dread to hear those words from an employer. It further caused me to question do I have that same anxiety when it comes to my Spiritual employer Jesus Christ? Have I made working for him a reality? Have I sought His approval regarding the way I treat the life He’s given me? Have I shared His love unbiased?  Have I read my Bible to gain instruction? Have I prayed enough to communicate with Him to fulfill His purpose in my life while I’m here on Earth for others to be drawn to Him?

Today and everyday I choose to be Jesus’ Apprentice, sharing the love of God. The “reality” is, this life won’t last forever, but through the love of Christ, we have the opportunity to eternal life. Who would keep this to themselves?  When it’s all said and done, instead of “you’re fired” I desire to hear “Well done, my good and faithful servant”. We can all work for the best Employer, whose is ranked #1 on Heaven’s list of “Top 100 companies to work for”. He is #1 in distributing love, benefits, compensation, forgiveness, faithfulness, healing, deliverance, joy and peace to all His employees. Beat that Google! Let’s get to work people. There’s a dying world out there, spiritually and physically. The change starts with us…knowing and being in relationship with Him. So, who do you work for?

"For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? (Matthew 16:26)

"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
