“The Lord’s work”
When you hear those phrases what types of things come to mind? Take a moment to think about it.
Now, I’d be willing to bet your list most likely consisted of things like:
- professional ministry / preaching
- evangelizing / making converts
- planting church organizations
- mission work
- earning some sort of ministry degree
- attending (or leading) worship services
- running church programs
- hosting bible studies
- teaching bible classes
And don’t get me wrong, those aren’t bad things….but the question I had for myself, and the one I’d offer to you is: Are those things a full and accurate representation of God’s idea of kingdom work?
To begin that exploration I’ll ask you another question: Did that list stir in your heart feelings of exhilaration? Adventure? Passion? Creativity? Freedom? Joy? Pleasure? Wonder? Sensuality? (And no, that last one wasn’t a typo)
