Today’s Message: Love the Job You’re In

Headlines Today's Message: Love the Job You’re In



“Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.”

(Colossians 3:23, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Some people think that loving their work means they won’t have to work hard, or that they won’t have frustrations. No, those things are all a part of life.

But ultimately, God can help you enjoy what you’re doing. When you’re in God’s will, there will be a joy on the inside and in your spirit, you will feel a sense of accomplishment. When you’re serving in your purpose, you will be fulfilled and enjoy your life.

You’ll live the best life that God intended for you — and He’ll take you places that you’ve never even dreamed of! You’ll experience the abundant life He has in store.

Our deepest desire for you is that you discover and follow God’s perfect will — knowing your calling, so that one day you can look back and say, “This is why God put me here.”


God, I want to thank You today for giving me meaningful and fulfilling work to do. Help me to see Your ultimate purpose and experience Your joy in even the most ordinary aspects of my work. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen


  1. Christian-lite from these 2 as usual. Diluting christianity to placate the masses.
    They should rename their ministry’s ethos to “How to feel good using the Bible”.

    • I know the job of Edgar Lungu, and has been absent so far this year as Minister. I am sure he is NOT enjoying his current job as presidential-seeker.
      I don’t know HH’s job, all I know is that he enjoys it.

  2. I think today’s message is meant for HH and his team of delusional cadres, and his family members abroad that are extorting him out of his ill begotten riches. I pray, Lord give HH wisdom to realise he is merely wasting his resources and time and will ultimately lose the forthcoming elections as he is unpopular in Zambia as is clearly seen by us who are on the ground..dear Lord guide the followers of UPND to see the light and not cause chaos when the result everyone is expecting of Edgar C. Lungu emerging victorious at the Presidential elections is announced, dear Lord remove their bitterness, hatred and selfishness, the same hatred that made them wish death on our dearly departed Leader Michael Chiluya Sata who time and time again forgave their leader HH.

    In Jesus name, Amen.

  3. Imwe ba Lusakatimes you are still pushing this white man propaganda of Christianity sure? Umunandi jay jay and i have tried to make you see the truth but still, you would rather stick to the lies. Karl Max was right when he said religion is the opium of the people. i guess it makes you feel good and gives you that false hope that jesus will give you justice, that you have a paradise in heaven etc. wake up!While you long for a world that no one has ever seen, the white man and his machinery are busy taking your resources and making their heaven right here on earth!! And they know how religious we africans are, they use the bible, quaran, torah, talmud to run their control of us. he who controls the printed page, controls the thinking of the age. Who do you think wrote the bible, God??

    • LT got its seed money to start up from the Dutch government back in 1998…I do not think their white paymasters would be happy if they started printing articles about black consciousness and black unity or encourage the natives to read about self on the website on Sunday…their Dutch shareholders still have vested interest. Its more convenient to keep the native under this spell of religion as you have more control over him like the slave masters did; they denied everything to the slave from his culture to his gods and his language but encouraged him to practice Christianity.

  4. Dear Joe and Victoria,

    I very much appreciate your desire to serve the Lord through the word. However I have noted that your massages are always on motivation to feeling good as one lives here on earth. These types of messages are directed to believers who are already saved but to those who are not saved we preach the gospel so that they get save in Jesus Christ the Lord. It would be very good of you two to also preach the gospel some times as you know on this thread there so many people under the rule of the devil. Find a time to preach the gospel to them not always motivating them and yet are perishing. Hope you have taken this into consideration.

    May the Lord God Bless you.

    • This is one of the great social functions of science – to free people from the tight grip superstition, prophets, Bronze Age myths, gods, demons and other imaginary characters have on humanity.
      And the parasitic charlatans (including con-men pastors and false prophets with private jets) that make a good living out of these gullible people.

    • Who is the devil? This is what brainwashing does to you…where was this devil before 2000 years? Did he suddenly pop up with your scripture….think think and read more about self. That Joel is a business man too busy enjoying his millions right here on earth whilst you look forward to the after life no different to those Muslim fundamentalists who look forward to an after life surrounded by virgins.
      Wake up from your silliness!!

  5. i wonder what makes people offended from simple things. just say amen! And move on! go to church and hear more about christ the rendemer. even if yo sins are as red as scalet they shall be forgiven and become as white as snow? I wish Mutabaruka could hear this

    • It is everyone’s business to expose anyone who misleads the public.
      Anyone with a fully functional brain and who is not hypnotized can see through those gangster’s who parade themselves as “men of God”

    • Well, it not as easy as that…saying Amen and moving on is what our fathers and mothers have been doing not even caring to find out what that word “Amen” actually means or where it was derived from….you are blessed with abundant knowledge on the internet that our parents could only dream of …tap in that knowledge and study about self; brother Ray Higgins always preaches on YouTube about self…go on and enlightened yourself for the sake of your children.
      wake up !!

  6. This is one of the great social functions of science – to free people from the tight grip superstition, prophets, Bronze Age myths, gods, demons and other imaginary characters have on humanity.

    Many people find it comforting to believe that someone else is looking out for them, watching over them, and guiding them gently through the path of life. Indeed, life would be so much simpler if someone else were responsible for our destiny, for countering evil with good, ensuring that caring people enjoy a comfortable afterlife. Many well-intentioned but misguided people will tell you prayer is the answer to the problems of the world. They’d have you believe that if only you pray often enough and hard enough, you can realize your most precious goals.
    Unfortunately, this is not reality. The untold suffering throughout the world should be evidence enough that no benevolent creator is watching over us, . People start wars, people abuse children and…. and…and

  8. Even people who agree with me that prayer is useless question why I feel so compelled to petition against it. But prayer is not just a harmless waste of time for those who choose to practice it. Prayer is harmful when people use it instead of going to a doctor. Prayer is harmful when people use it instead of hard work, logic, and common sense to find a better job or otherwise improve their lives. Prayer, when combined with using grocery money to buy lottery tickets, is particularly damaging. In a nutshell, prayer offers false hope, and diverts people’s attention from what they really should be doing to succeed. If prayer actually worked, everyone would be a millionaire, nobody would ever get sick and die, and both football teams would always win. Saying prayer works is the same as saying…

  9. ……that wishful thinking alone can solve problems. It’s also unreasonable to argue that prayer consoles and comforts those who believe in it. If that were really true, why do the believers keep going back to church week after week, like an addict in need of a fix?

  10. Gaining knowledge about the world we live in is in the best interest of mankind. If we understand how disease thrives and spreads, we can develop effective cures. If we understand agriculture, we can reduce starvation. And if we understand psychology, we can strive to be a happier and more tolerant society. These are important and worthy goals which, unfortunately, defy the very definition of the term “faith.” Yet many otherwise intelligent people leave their logical powers at the curb when they enter their chosen house of worship.


    Only you can control your success and happiness. Work hard and be a good person for its own value, not from fear of an imaginary god.

  12. Great message. It instills good work ethic. Our citizens need good work ethic and self discipline for our Country to move forward. If it is to be, it is up to us. God bless you guys at LT.

    • Surely you don’t need your white man’s “bible” to tell you that this is common sense…I guess for some its not that common they need to shepherded like sheep on the field.

    • @JAY JAY, also known as ZAGAZE, MAXWELL, etc…..

      LOL..Let me get this straight, you are advocating for ‘separate development’ on spiritual matters for black Africans? The irony is that not long ago you declared that you are an atheist. So now you know enough about the spiritual realm of God to even suggest Spiritual Apartheid for Africans in 2015? What colour is God’s love? And why sound upset?.

      Seriously, what I don’t need is an Atheist like you to try and lecture me. You, my friend, are blind to God’s love and the freedom He gave to human beings, i.e. freedom of worship, association, intermarriages…etc. Therefore, expecting you to respect other peoples’ freedoms even if you do not agree with them, is like expecting you to do ‘Quantum Physics’ without prior knowledge.

  13. I can’t stand the guy’s cheesiness. He’s no different from a life coach except that he uses religion and the already-captive audience it affords him.

    A very easy way to get a following, rather than to prove yourself on merit and let your works speak for you.
