Whatever You Do, Work at it With All Your Heart
“I believe that God has given each of us a mandate to solve a problem. And when we begin to solve problems, we begin to have influence. Because culture doesn’t care who solves their problem, they just want their problem solved. So I believe that influence is a result of a fruit of our call, not a goal.”- Os Hillman
Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Whether you work in the secular world, or whether you work for a ministry, everything you do with a motive to serve God is part of living out your faith. Work is ministry, regardless of your job.

“It’s not a reigning over people, it’s using the spiritual authority of the Holy Spirit to be able to pray things in to existence. To be able to be his witnesses in the Earth. To be able to share the gospel, to be able to solve problems. That’s what I mean by authority, not to dominate another person, but to represent Heaven on Earth.”- Os Hillman
