Set Apart at Work

May 19, 2016

Learn more about being set apart at work. Watch the interview with Jentezen Franklin and Doug Spada.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart… (Jeremiah 1:5 – NIV)

Sundays are not more spiritual than Monday! Mondays are not “just work” with Sundays being the really spiritual days. Jesus did not devote his ministry exclusively to Sunday (or Saturday); more often, Jesus spent most of his time and told most of his stories on Monday or a work day. Imagine if, every Sunday, millions of Christians would exit the church knowing their mission field is just outside those church doors–and they refused to Switch OFF their faith on Monday! Every day belongs to God. Your work is valuable to God no matter the day of the week.

Abraham Kuyper said it well: “In the total expanse of human life there is not a single square inch of which the Christ, who alone is sovereign, does not declare, ‘That is mine!'”

The work you do on Monday is important to your Heavenly Father. He created you and he knows you better than anyone. He has uniquely designed you and strategically placed you to represent Him in the workplace. He set you apart, for what He needs done right now, right here. Your work is ministry! God says in the Bible: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart… Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)
