Good morning! I have been a tad inconsistent in posting over the last two or three weeks as we have been transitioning to another job, state and house! As I mentioned before, we have moved from Life Action Ministries to Ambassador Enterprises in Fort Wayne, IN. Ambassador is a partner with Life Action and a Christ-centered company, so the transition has been a bit easier.
One of my recent assignments was reviewing the book Work as Worship by Mark Russell. This is a good book that gives you a different perspective on work. For so long I, as do many others, viewed someone in full-time vocational ministry as “first-string” ministry and those in the secular workforce were not really in ministry. They at best would have the opportunity to support those “really” in ministry.
Work as Worship shows the fallacy of that viewpoint. The book is filled with the stories of people who are leaders of businesses and who see their work as ministry. They are impacting lives and changing society through their work.
The book covers twelve themes:
Think about it – your work, whatever it is, should be an act of worship of Jesus. So, are you doing you work “as unto Christ”? Or are you just trying to get by?
Today, this Monday, enter into your work with passion and energy as you worship Him and represent Him in your workplace.
Blessings on your week!
