Ephesians 6:8 Meaning and Commentary

Ephesians 6:8

Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doth
According to the will of God, from right principles in his heart, and with a view to God's glory:

the same shall he receive of the Lord;
that is, he shall receive the fruit and advantage of it, in a way of grace,

whether [he be] bond or free;

Ephesians 6:8 In-Context

6 Don't [work only] while being watched, in order to please men, but as slaves of Christ, do God's will from your heart.
7 Render service with a good attitude, as to the Lord and not to men,
8 knowing that whatever good each one does, slave or free, he will receive this back from the Lord.
9 And masters, treat them the same way, without threatening them, because you know that both their and your Master is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with Him.
10 Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength.
