Who’s Your Real Boss?
Pastor John Watkin

The Apostle Paul planted and had oversight of churches with members from all levels of society. Some were slaves, some were free and others could be the owners and masters of the slaves they were worshiping with.
We are going to study what Paul wrote to that society about how a believer should function in the workplace. He addressed his remarks to slaves and masters but what he said clearly applies to employees and employers today. In Colossians 3:22-23 (NIV) he wrote…
“Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. 23Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
Our Labor Day Sunday message is entitled, “Who’s Your Real Boss?” – we look more deeply at this passage and the new standard it sets for the worker and the boss who is striving to follow Jesus.
