Sermon Outline

Family Matters, Part XI - Your Work Matters Too

In Ephesians 6:5-8, Paul gives two clear directives to slaves (employees). You are to be:

  • Subject to Your Earthly Masters

    • Doing So with Fear
    • Doing so in sincerity
    • Doing So without man-pleasing
  • Slaves to Your Heavenly Master

    • Representing the Father's will
    • Rendering service with goodwill
    • Realizing the return



For a work to be considered good it must not only conform outwardly to the law of God but it must be motivated inwardly by a sincere love for God. - R. C. Sproul

What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. - Martin Luther
