Seeing Our Work as Sacred

Observation:

From today’s verses, what significant observations can you make about the calling and resources of God’s representatives to the world?

Deeper Reflection
FINDING MEANING, REST AND JOY IN OUR WORK HAS GOT a lot to do with Christians’ ministry in the marketplace and the task of discipling Singapore. It is only when we have recognised and dealt with the inner life issues pertaining to the paradigms regarding our work that we can have the right perspectives and postures to influence the marketplace and society that God has placed us in. For we reproduce after our own kind. We want to reproduce the right kind of disciples – a Christlike kind!However, we must not neglect the outer life to which God has also called us, that is, a life of ministry and service to others for the sake of Christ. In our God-given vocation, wherever God has placed us in His service, we are to use whatever God has given us in order to accomplish His will. Wherever we are. We remember that the great prophet Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt and across the Red Sea. But let us not forget that Moses’ commissioning took place amid the daily mundane course of his work.17 So lest we think that our daily vocations are insignificant, remember that wherever we are, God calls us for His purposes.Whatever we have. At times, we may feel that the skills in our workplace have little to do with extending God’s Kingdom. But look at how God used the simple staff of Moses to perform mighty miracles in His name.18 So never underestimate the training and experience that your work gives to you, for God is using even these to accomplish His will.
17 When God called Moses, he was tending sheep for his father-in-law, Jethro (and for the past 40 years too!): see Acts 7:20-34. 18 Exodus 4:17; 7-10; 14.
