Most honorable vocations exist to meet the needs of people; God has ordained His world so that people with various abilities meet various needs. We should think of our vocation, therefore, not as a necessary evil to pay the bills, nor even as an opportunity to become rich, but as the primary path of our Christian walk wherein God has planned good deeds for us to do.What an encouragement! Because God Himself says:
(Jerry Bridges in The Fruitful Life)
By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;These thoughts have been a blessing to me this week, so I'm sharing them today – "Just for the JOY of It!"
Not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
