On Wednesday we will get together for Week 5 of 12 in our “Make Disciples.” series. Below you will find links to an overview of the full 12 weeks and for the fifth area on the map, Engaging God’s World: Day Job.
During the 12 weeks, we are addressing areas on a comprehensive discipleship map. After discussing each area, we will try to establish Milestones that would provide evidence of personal spiritual growth – markers that we work toward.
The ordinary becomes something extraordinary when God is involved. The work of the Holy Spirit does not have to look supernatural. He works through our work, using earthly materials and very human capabilities.
The ideas of vocation and calling have been vanquished from our thinking in recent years. We’re now far more comfortable with a job, occupation or career. Personally I attribute this shift to the fact that a calling requires a Caller (note the cap C) – and we no longer want anything to do with such a being. Nonetheless, if we accept the Caller’s existence, a calling gives meaning to our work, making it more of a vocation than anything else.
