How should Christians view work and vocation? Occasionally it feels like work is just work and nothing about the daily grind has to do with the teachings of the Bible or who we are called to be. Many would admit that, of course, as Christians, they are called to work hard, and to work with honesty and integrity. But other than that, many see work as just a secular fact of life which we must accept. Others feel that work is worse than just neutral, but instead, is a result of the fall. However, Scripture seems to paint a different picture about our daily labor, which informs our vocations by placing them in a gospel-centered, biblical perspective. Check out the video below as Dr. Benjamin Quinn and Dr. Keith Whitfield discuss the biblical idea of vocation.

What is the gospel? How would you describe it if asked? What we believe and understand about the gospel is at the very core of who we are as Christians, and will affect the way we talk, the manner in which we conduct our lives, and most importantly the reason for which we live our lives. The gospel is where it all has to start as it is the basis for our evangelism and for our own salvation. Watch this video in which Dr. Keith Whitfield discusses with Dr. D.A. Carson the depth of what the gospel is, and how we should rightly understand it.
