Most of us view our jobs as a necessary evil. It’s the “grind”. We’re “living for the weekend”. In fact, surveys show that the majority of people are unhappy in their job and feel that they are underpaid for the work they do. But we keep showing up every Monday because we need the money right? What if God has a bigger purpose for you at your job then just collecting a paycheck? This week, Pastor Taylor talks about what you can do differently this week at work and how in the process, can find more joy and fulfillment in your work.



What if God wants more from your job than a paychecks, awards, and promotions.

Acts 18:1-8, Then Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. 2There he became acquainted with a Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, who had recently arrived from Italy with his wife, Priscilla. They had left Italy when Claudius Caesar deported all Jews from Rome. 3Paul lived and worked with them, for they were tentmakers just as he was. 4Each Sabbath found Paul at the synagogue, trying to convince the Jews and Greeks alike. 5And after Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia, Paul spent all his time preaching the word. He testified to the Jews that Jesus was the Messiah. 6But when they opposed and insulted him, Paul shook the dust from his clothes and said, “Your blood is upon your own heads—I am innocent. From now on I will go preach to the Gentiles.” 7Then he left and went to the home of Titius Justus, a Gentile who worshiped God and lived next door to the synagogue. 8Crispus, the leader of the synagogue, and everyone in his household believed in the Lord. Many others in Corinth also heard Paul, became believers, and were baptized.

Paul was a follower of Jesus that happened to make tents.

Paul didn’t see his occupation as a tentmaker as just his way to make
money but a way to worship God and serve others.
