Take This Job and.....Glorify God
We all have to go to work. Sometimes it's drudgery and hard. But do we see it as a calling from God, as our ministry to the world and as a “sacred" task? That's how Paul sees it and how he encourages those with the most menial jobs. In this message we look at the Biblical Doctrine of Work and Vocation as we continue in the Colossians series.
Vocation & Calling
1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.
1 Peter 1:4 to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,
1 Corinthians 7:20 Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called.
