Secular or Sacred?

We Christians often divide things in life based on whether they are worldly or whether they are spiritual, calling them secular and sacred respectively. Sometimes we refer to the work we do as either secular or sacred.

But sometimes there is no difference between the two. If you are born again, then everything you do is supposed to be sacred. Everything you do should be done for God (1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 3:17 & 22-25). God has you in a specific place and wants you to do specific things there. If you’re doing something for God because He said so, it’s sacred.

Accurately preaching and teaching the Word of God is sacred. Working your 9 to 5 and giving it your best is sacred. Working part time and having a good attitude about people who mistreat you is sacred. Witnessing to the people you come into contact with every day is sacred. Being single is sacred. Being married is sacred. Providing for and caring for your family is sacred. Being a parent is sacred. Being laid off is sacred.

God has something you’re supposed to be doing wherever you’re at. Do His sacred work.
