For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).
You spend 8 hours a day (or more!), 5 days a week (or more!) there. It’s what you talk about at parties. It’s how you introduce yourself. It might even be the reason you live where you live. Our jobs often dictate the circumstances and rhythms of our lives. So why does Monday morning feel so far from Sunday morning? For many Christians, there is a significant gap between work and faith. The two simply feel unrelated.
The root of the English word vocation is the Latin verb voca, which means “to call.” At some point in history, people thought of every type of work as a “calling.” Whether you are a minister or a mechanic, you do not work because it pays the bills, or because it’s personally fulfilling, or because it justifies the money you spent on college tuition. You work because it glorifies God.
Our Mondays have more meaning than we may give them credit. Whether you’re in the marketplace, in school, or in the home, God has a purpose for you. Through this series, we will discover what it looks like to go from simply working a job to fulfilling God’s unique mission for each of us.
