Jesus Co. - Paid In Full
Daily Devotionals

 Monday, June 5

Matthew 9:37-38
37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Think back to the last time you applied for a job…The awkwardness of sitting across a desk from your potential employer and answering their questions about your qualifications for the position you were seeking. Now imagine that the interviewer was Jesus. What skills would you tell Him you possessed that qualify you to work for Him? Could you give Him references that would validate those skills as well as your character? This is the mindset that many people have as they seek to find their role in His Kingdom. They live life with the idea that Jesus is looking for them to develop a certain skillset before He considers them qualified to serve. The truth is that He created you with every skill and talent that you’ll ever need to be beneficial to Him. In His company you already have a specific position that only you can fill. You’re hired! Go and be who He has made you to be today.

Galatians 4:1-7
4 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, 2 but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by his father. 3 In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. 4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. 6 And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.

The amazing and beautiful thing about working for Jesus is that you don’t actually work for Him at all. Through His sacrifice, he bought and paid for your position at the table. You aren’t just an employee, you are a partner. Jesus never planned for you to work for Him, He wants you to work with Him. He wants to partner with you to see Jesus Co. grow and thrive. This partnership is so much more than a simple 50% - 50% cooperation, it is a 100% - 100% partnership. Jesus gave His everything, 100% of His life and effort for your partnership so in return your requirement in this arrangement is 100% of your life and effort. Today, commit to giving Him more than just a place in your heart…give Him your life, energy, time, assets, and abilities. Are you willing to fully invest in your partnership at Jesus Co? It’s time to live up to your position at His table.

Luke 15:31
And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.

The first question or inquiry any person asks before going to work in a new place or position is what the pay will be. Whether someone wants to admit it or not, wage is a very important factor when considering a job. When you renew your mind to the truth that Jesus has made you a partner, not just an employee you will understand that the entire company is yours. You have access to every benefit, asset, and revenue that belong to this company because you are an equal partner. As long as you are advancing the Kingdom and growing in your position you can expect the company to work for you as much as you work for it. It’s time to stop trying to simply think on a higher level and start thinking on a Heavenly level. You were paid completely and in full the moment you accepted His work of grace and received salvation. So, partner, what can Jesus Co. do for you?

Ephesians 2:4-6
4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.

One of the most difficult, yet wonderful things to wrap your mind around as a believer is the position and power you have in Christ. Sadly, many believers allow their lack of understanding in this area to hinder them from moving forward into the new and deeper things God has for them. If people would come to the realization that they would understand the power of their position by simply beginning to walk in it they would experience a divine revelation take place in their life. Remember when you first sat behind the steering wheel of a car? Even though you may have ridden in a car countless times, you didn’t know what the power under the hood was fully capable of until you took it out of park. What areas of your life are in park today? Shift them into drive and move forward in all the power God has given you.

1 Peter 2:24
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

3 John 2
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.

One of the privileges many employers offer is insurance and a health and wellness incentives. Well at Jesus Co. health insurance isn’t offered but health assurance is available to all partners. The benefit to assurance over insurance is that while insurance will help your through the inconvenience of a sickness or injury, assurance is the benefit of walking in freedom from those things in the first place. So not only do you get to avoid the financial stresses of doctors visits and medicine but discomfort of sickness and injury altogether. At Jesus Co., He knows how valuable you are to the team and He doesn’t want you to have to miss any time that you could be using to advance His Kingdom. So sign up for ‘Health Assurance today’. The plan and policy is in today’s scripture text. Read them and receive them.

Psalm 103: 2-5
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

By becoming a partner at Jesus Co., you get to experience each and every benefit that the company, or Kingdom has to offer. Unfortunately, many partners forget to stay up to speed on those benefits. They don’t enjoy healing, forgiveness, redemption or satisfaction to it’s fullest because they forget to access them. Your employee handbook, the Bible, has them listed from beginning to end. If you’ll familiarize yourself with it on a regular, daily basis you’ll stay caught up on every benefit that Jesus Co. has for it’s partners. You’ll not be able to find another company that offers it’s partners a more complete or empowering benfits package than Jesus Co. Tap into your benefits today.
