What's Your Job Description?

Ephesians 2:10, God has work for each of us, We are all "Called" in Christ
I’ve been a student, a missionary, a seminar speaker, a waitress, a store clerk, a freelance writer, and a stay-at-home mom. 

And God was not impressed with one position any more than another.

What impresses God is our faithfulness to our primary “calling” to serve Christ wherever we are and whatever we do.

Sometimes we make a huge mistake. We think that pastors and missionaries are the only “called” ones. But God has kingdom work for each of us. In every sphere of life--where we work and where we "play," God has important things for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).

So let's approach today and every day with:  
  • An awareness of God's presence
  • An ear listening for His gentle voice
  • A heart that embraces divine interruptions
  • A readiness to share Christ as opportunities arise
Each Christian is called to important Kingdom service. So let’s look forward to God's active management of our time, resources and opportunities.

  2. I saw you on the better mom. Thanks for sharing this. We all have an important title whether its mom, teacher, or whatever. We're all called to
    do something for Christ.

    Blessings,

  3. Thank you! I agree, though it's taken me a while to stop saying that I'm "just" a SAHM and to say it happily. Because I am happy to be doing this. :)

  4. Gail,

    I had a great epiphany during my days as a SAHM -- as I carried a casserole down the street to a sick neighbor, God reminded me of the opportunities he had given me to minster to each of my neighbors in different ways over the years because I was home, aware of what was going on in their lives, and sensitive. He helped me realize that I might be in a unique position to touch them in his name. It made me view being "sidelined" as I sometimes felt, in a whole different light. Thanks for posting on this topic :)

  10. It is so easy to overlook this when we are doing the laundry or cooking meals. However, we can be doing the work of God when we have the right attitude and priorities. Thanks for sharing at Mom's Library.
