New Job; New Mission Field

Matthew 28:16-20
English Standard Version (ESV)

The Great Commission

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

I am beginning a new job on Wednesday. My prayer is that I can be a missionary on the job. I’ll be working one week on and one week off. Every believer in, and follower of Christ is called to be
about their fathers business. We are all called to be on a mission. I once was told by a college professor that if you’re not a missionary, then you’re a mission field, and that is so true.

So, as I leave this post, I would like to pray…

Jesus, thank you for the cross and for what you did in dying my death, so I could live your life. I pray that you would give myself and all who claim you the strength and desire to live a gospel centered life in our places of work. Also that you would not allow us to be someone in the workplace that differs from who we claim to be at home. Lord God, thank you for loving me, the unloveable and for putting up with my childishness. Make me more like you.
