CONCLUSION Our responsibility lies in working for the Lord, whether it is in “looking after orphans or widows in distress” (James 1: 27), giving to the hungry, the naked, visiting those in prison (Matthew 25: 3536), serving in our workplace (Colossians 3: 22), or doing whatever we do (Colossians 3: 23). Our motivation is that we have God’s own promise that our work “is not in vain” in the Lord “since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3: 24). “Always giving ourselves full to the work of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15: 58)
