You Serve the Lord Christ

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Is work a high calling? Andy said,“Yeah, if you’re Bill Gates or Bono. If you have millions of dollars to fight disease or feed the hungry.” From Andy’s perspective, work was work. Period. Especially since company downsizing had lowered his position and pay.

So this verse broadsided him: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. Whoa! Andy had seen those words before—but when circumstances were much different.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. In Colossians 3, Paul lays it out: “It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.” For Andy, that reminder became a game-changer. Those simple words return us all to the high calling of our daily work.
