    Colossians 3:23 tells us plainly who we are to please. It does not matter whether or not our job is considered to be important or not. If we do the job for God and not for any worldly praise, then that is all that matters.

    Edna: It is a Feeling. Those who're Saved have Great Joy in Their Heart:if They are Studying,telling Others The Way of Salvation,having Fellowship. That's why Paul and Others were Singing in Prison. Acts 16:25. The Lord keeps The Joy in Our Heart: Jude 24. Deep Down In Our Heart. One who is NOT Saved will NOT have that Joy. Pastors say if you feel lost,no joy don't worry,that's Satan./That's False
