Calling and Vocation

"But in the Bible, the concept of calling goes deeper than any one aspect of life, such as work. God calls people to become united with himself in every aspect of life. This can only occur as a response to Christ’s call to follow him. The calling to follow Christ lies at the root of every other calling. It is important, however, not to confuse a calling to follow Christ with a calling to become a professional church worker. People in every walk of life are called to follow Christ with equal depth and commitment."

    Wow, that article is good, but long. I think it is really important to figure out your theology of work. Having worked 10+ years as an engineer in the Arabian Gulf, it is so critical to not view your work as "the necessary evil" in order to share good news with people. God is so glorified in your work because it provides natural relationships to share Christ.
