Throughout the Bible we can find how God speaks to us about social tasks and how to be a good citizen. All this is part of how we can be truly christians. Being followers of Christ will have a cost, and that cost also involves being helpful with others, because, the Bible tells us that if we do not love the people we can see, how can we love God whom we have not seen? And it is precisely because of this that we must do good deeds to the people, but, keeping in mind that everything we do is for the glory of God and not for self-recognition.
The apostle Paul wrote to the Colossians:
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Before the apostle said these words to the Colossians, he spoke to them of certain social tasks, such as living a good marriage, also reminding the parents that they should not irritate their children and the servants by telling them how they should submit to their masters. And in the verses we just quoted, he says: “work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” This is telling us that everything we do in our day-to-day life must be done wholeheartedly, not with hypocrisy or double-faced, but as if we were doing it for the Lord.
Sometimes it is difficult for us to behave properly in certain situations that arise, but we must know that our testimony will speak for the testimony of Christianity, and if we do not do so then we are demonstrating that we are not true believers.
Beloved brethren, let us do as we should, remembering that a reward of the inheritance awaits us which is in Christ Jesus whom we serve, to Him the glory, the empire and the honor for ever and ever, Amen.
