God's Purpose to Our Work

No matter what our job is,
we view it not as our purpose in life
but rather as where God has sovereignly placed us
for the purpose of making Christ known and his name great.

If you are a teacher,
if you are a politician,
if you are a businessman,
if you are in agriculture,
if you are in construction,
if you are in technology,
if you are in the arts,

then you should not be saying,
‘I need to find my life’s purpose in this work,’
but rather,
‘I need to bring God’s purpose to this work.’

Matt Chandler The Explicit Gospel (Crossway, 2012), 149.
