Romans 12:11- Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. (New Living Translation)
“En theos” is a Latin phrase to describe the word “enthusiasm.” A phrase which means “in God,” to which we place our hope and trust. Hence, “in God” leans to the side of heavenly riches rather than our own mundane wealth. “In God” is a reminder to work with jubilation, for our work is more than a remedial task, but an outline for a magnanimous plan.
Circumstances beset our souls. Anger displaces our rationality. Truth dissipates and all we are left with is confusion. How can a person work in such an environment? The answer, “en theos,” for we were placed in that situation for a reason, even though its contents remain esoteric to us. For there are no coincidences or luck in life. There is only an outcome that God has already seen. For at the right time the veil will be lifted from our eyes, so we might see the journey ahead of us. Thus, work like there is no tomorrow and you too will be blessed in God’s Kingdom.
