Three Motivating Mandates
There are three motivating mandates in these Scripture excerpts from Colossians.
1. “Put on love…”
2. “Let the word of Christ dwell among you richly…”
3. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord…”
Last Sunday, I challenged our congregation and myself to consider how much better we will be as individuals, as servants of Christ, and as a local church by simply and sincerely following these three mandates.
The results are life-changing and sustaining:
1. Love binds us together.
2. The word of Christ dwelling in us richly helps us to faithfully serve one another.
3. Working as unto the Lord is our best motivation for excellence in everything we do.
