• Paul’s Gospel Obligation Devotional

    Romans 1:13–15

    All believers have been called by God to a specific task and given certain gifts for ministry. The question for us is whether we feel driven to fulfill this vocation and use the gifts that the Lord has given us. Though our physical limitations and our sin may lead us into periods of apathy, one sign of the Spirit’s work in our hearts is that we feel compelled to serve God where He has called us and that we are eager to find ways to fulfill our vocations.

  • Glory Through Glorification Devotional

    Romans 8:28–30

    Think about how amazing it is that the Lord has purposed to bring about His own glory in and through our glorification. God could have left us in our sin, and He would have been glorified in our condemnation. Yet, He has chosen His people that He might be glorified not only as Judge but also as Savior (Rom. 9:1–29). Because God has sworn that He will be glorified through our glorification, He cannot fail to bring our salvation to completion in the day of Christ Jesus. View Resource

  • Our Divine Vocation Devotional

    Luke 2:22–35

    Since God is absolutely sovereign over all and works all things according to His purposes (Eph. 1:11), we understand that every instance of suffering results from His calling upon us. This is true even when we do not know why we are suffering. The important thing is that He knows why we are suffering, and He is working to conform us to the image of Christ in the midst of our pain. For that we can always be grateful. View Resource

  • Leading by Example Devotional

    Ephesians 6:9

    President Dwight D. Eisenhower once observed that “leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.” Good leaders do not lead by maintaining uncertain, ever-changing standards or by demeaning good workers. Instead, they serve those whom they supervise by encouraging them and setting a vision that all can seize and run with gladly. View Resource

  • Have Dominion Devotional

    Genesis 1:28-31

    Subduing creation for God’s glory is a multifaceted endeavor. It involves the raising of godly children and the conversion of the nations so that the world will be filled with sanctified image-bearers. Taking dominion also means we endeavor to use our talents in every discipline in order to bring glory to God. As you work in your vocation, seek to glorify God in all you do by laboring diligently and by submitting to those in authority over you. View Resource

    Proverbs 16:1, 9

    Do you have anxiety about the future and decisions you have to make? Could your anxiety stem from trying to make things work for yourself instead of trusting God?

    Proverbs 10:16

    Examine your work habits. This can include not only your vocation, but your duties at home and at church. In what ways do you cheat those who are in authority over you?
