Sanctified Time Pass – A Theology of Work

Welcome to Monday. Are you excited to worship God today at work?… Yes, you read that correctly. Worship God at the office. But I’m afraid that many days we despise going to work. We begin to think, “I’m doing the work for some secular boss, when I could be going out and doing real work for the Lord.” If these are your thoughts, then today’s post will do you a lot of good.

5 Heart-piercing, thought-provoking articles

How to find joy and meaning in your work
Let’s be honest. Many of us wish we loved our jobs more. Many of us want a higher calling in life rather than the 9-5 Mon-Fri job. This article will recalibrate our hearts to know that our higher calling is our 9-5 Mon-Fri job.

4 Reasons why God wills work
That’s right. Our jobs are not a “necessary evil” put here so that we can give more or to pass our time until we do more important stuff. Rather, it is in God’s perfect pleasure that we are to work and that is for our good!

Beauty of manual labor
This theology of work is not just for the guys in a cushy office chair, but it’s across all levels of work – even those who work under the hot sun as daily wage workers.

How God defines success
Before we start down the path that God is putting us in our jobs in order to make us materially wealthy and successful. While he may do that, this is not the theology of work. This author points us to Scripture to see how God defines success.

Gospel at Work
Technically this is not an article, but a series of videos. The book (under the same title) is eye-opening and heart-shaking. These videos mettle down the book and help you think through why and how it is that you can bring the gospel at work.

Faith-strengthening video

Have you viewed your work as worship to God? Or is worship only done on Sunday morning with a guitarist playing? It’s time we start thinking that it is not only the full-time Christian workers who get to worship all week long, but every believer can, and should, believe that his work is an act of worship to God.

Verse of the Week

Colossians 3:22-24 Bondservants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
