Putting Emotions into what you do

If you really take your job seriously and find it the greatest calling that God has for you then you’ve got to put some emotions into your work. You can’t be business as usual. You don’t get promoted by just clocking in and out of work. People get noticed when they put some drama into their work.

Here are some pictures from our church in U-belt. The reason the church is growing by leaps and bounds – passion!!!! You can never pay passion.

The passion was contagious. You could see how this volunteers put a lot of effort in what they do. From the stage design, the cleanliness of the hall, the sound of the band.

You can’t wing emotions. That is why artists are dramatic. They need to feel it. They make a big deal about their work or could I say art. So it doesn’t matter if you are an artist or not – the question is do you put drama into what you do or are you an emotionless employee.

As emotions are displayed in our work, we become contagious. We spread the love for work that matters. People feel it so the atmosphere is filled with it. People start loving going to work, or in our case going to church. They might not fully understand the Scripture but they see something is different here. Why are these people passionate in serving Jesus?

Why do they dedicate their time and effort for worship and service? What do they get in return? Why block off an afternoon for worship practice? Why give up my Friday nights to the church when I could party with my friends? Sometimes we ask the wrong things. Passionate people don’t ask those things. They know their work matters. It gives them a sense of fulfillment. Christ followers count the cost and counting the cost means I deliberately and choose freely to do work that matters. At the end of the day, they know that the chief end of man is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever.

Whether they get paid or not, it doesn’t matter. They don’t look who gets the credit. They know what I sow, I will reap. Money can’t pay my passion. You can’t buy this anywhere.
