Mark 12:15-17 (NLT) Should we pay them, or shouldn’t we?” Jesus saw through their hypocrisy and said, “Why are you trying to trap me? Show me a Roman coin, and I’ll tell you.” 16 When they handed it to him, he asked, “Whose picture and title are stamped on it?” “Caesar’s,” they replied.17 “Well, then,” Jesus said, “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.” His reply completely amazed them.
Jesus said ‘give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar’. Caesar’s image was on the coin in question.
We know that we have been created in the image of God. This means we she should give ourselves to God because we belong to Him. God’s image and seal is on us (see Eph 1:13).
The most important thing in life is to serve the Lord. The way life is, if you’re not serving God with your life, you are serving mammon. Those who serve mammon will end up under the control of Satan, but those who serve God are ruled by God and are known by Him.
It is very important for Christians to know their calling and know what their assignment in the kingdom of God is. Your assignment doesn’t have to be something pertaining to preaching from a pulpit (and it could be), it could be to build a business and influence your clients and workers with the righteousness of God. It could be to raise your children to know and serve the Lord. In whatever you do, make sure you are spending your life for the purpose of Christ and the advancement of His kingdom. Do all things in the name of the Lord, because you are His representative here on earth (see Col 3:17).
Go into today remembering that your greatest joy and fulfillment will be realized when you are found in the center of God’s will. Ask the Lord to help you serve Him and please Him with your life.
