Mission at Work book by Bryan Chapell
In this new book by Bryan Chapell, you'll be inspired and liberated to be all that God has called you to be and fulfill your particular calling.
Our sense of our life's purpose changes dramatically when we begin to recognize that all kinds of work possess qualities of divine mission – not just the jobs of preachers or missionaries, and not just those of CEOs and brain surgeons. God is calling the cop and the carpenter and the concrete layer to experience the dignity of their work as He uses their jobs to help others, improve lives, and spread the influence of His kingdom in the world. In the skills we express, in the products we make, in the way we work, in the impact of our labors on society and on the relationships affected by our work, we are instruments of God's redeeming work in a broken world.
We need to claim this truth, so that we don't belittle or disparage our own vocation with, "I'm just a tentmaker." What? You mean like Paul?
"Just a fisherman." What! You mean like Peter?
"Just a carpenter." What? You mean like Jesus?!
In every vocation, we have the ability to take the image of God into the work that we do and, in doing so, help people understand the goodness of who God is, the care that He has for us, and the diverse professions He has created for the care of His world and its people.
