God’s Calling and My Work

Our work is worship. All work is God’s work. Our English word vocation is the Latin verb voca, which means “to call.” The wording suggests that at some point in history, people actually thought of every type of work/vocation, not must ministry related roles, as a “calling.” Every job as a calling from God affirms Christ’s supremacy throughout the whole world. As theologian Abraham Kuyper said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!’”

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 

What is your calling?
