Ep 736 | How to Love Your Job & Find Your Calling | Guest: Jordan Raynor Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey

    • News Commentary

Today we're joined by Jordan Raynor, author, entrepreneur, and host of the "Mere Christians" podcast, to discuss the biblical perspective on work. We start by discussing what God thinks about work and how work was not a result of the fall, but rather a gift from God before the fall. But how does that truth change the way we work on a day-to-day basis? How can seemingly mundane work such as changing diapers or making a latte bring pleasure to God? We discuss what brings God joy in our work and what work will look like in heaven (yes, we will work in heaven!). Then, we talk about the importance of disciple-making and how it's more important than ever to think of this within the framework of the workplace. We discuss what "calling" means and whether God cares about what work we choose to do. Then, we look at the importance of doing difficult jobs with joy and why we as Christians need to be running into dark places.

Jordan's books:

The Word Before Work: A Monday-Through-Friday Devotional to Help You Find Eternal Purpose in Your Daily Work
Called to Create: A Biblical Invitation to Create, Innovate, and Risk
Master of One: Find and Focus on the Work You Were Created to Do
The Creator in You
