In ‘Work is From God‘ we reflected on the following scripture:

Jesus said, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working”
~ John 5:17.

Our conclusion there was that “God is always at His work. Jesus is always at His work. And If you are not always at your work, you are not being like the Father; you are not being like God.”

A lot of people in church falsely think that being godly is just a matter of religious routines: bible reading, church attendance, and so on.  They need to understand that there’s a huge difference between being religious and being godly.

To be godly means that your life, thoughts, and actions are patterned according to the nature of God.

Now, if the Father is always at His work, and Jesus Christ, too, is working, it is ungodly for you not to be always at your work. So if you are not always at your work, you are being ungodly.

Some people have no work; others do but are rarely at it; both are ungodly.

God is always at His work. When Jesus came into this world, He was always at His work. Work is from God; and work is godly. If you have no work, or you have but are not always at it, then you are being ungodly.

If you are God’s child, then, just like your Father, and Jesus Christ, find your work and get on with it.

Very simple words, yet, very revealing! “there’s a huge difference between being religious and being godly.”
