Who we are as disciples of Jesus influences every sphere of our lives. Our life in Christ is to color what we do and say with faith, hope and love. All Christians are called by God to live out their priesthood as believers in all spheres of life (1 Peter 2:5).
However, too often people fall into a prevalent misconception, a divide between the sacred and secular in their walk with Jesus, and think and act as though their work is somehow separate from their identity in Christ.
Yet, this doesn’t match with a biblical worldview or the gospel. Jesus, the Son of God, is the risen and ascended Lord of heaven and earth. As such, every sphere of our lives, of reality actually, is under Him, including our work.
So how should our faith influence our work? This is the first of a mini series on faith at work where we discuss this issue with the average saints.
