Colossians 3:23 (NKJV) And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,

To work wholeheartedly is to work with complete sincerity and commitment. Paul is saying, work from your soul. If you can’t serve the LORD with enthusiasm, regardless of what you are doing, then you should not be doing it. That is correct, my friend. If you feel like you are being forced, or you feel like it is an obligation, or if you are doing it for some hidden agenda, then you should not be serving the LORD. You should get right with God so that His joy will fill your heart again. Then wholeheartedly serve Him. Another application is this, whenever you need to know if something you want to do, or if a place you want to go, is right according to God’s Word, then use Colossians 3:23 as your measuring stick, so to speak. This is your standard, “Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord.” This verse applies to all that you do, as the Apostle Paul says.

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
