Christ and Your Career



How does a relationship with Christ impact your career?

As we continue through 1 Thessalonians, Ben Stuart hones in on some of Paul’s practical implications for our faith and how they play out in everyday life. If we are meant to love the Lord and love our neighbors, what does it look like within the context of our jobs?

Key Takeaway

Pick a career, pursue it for the glory of Christ, and represent Christ well through hard working and serving others.

  1. As we are adopted into sonship, we embrace a new family of brothers and sisters in Christ.
  2. Do not be a disruptive force to the community and create needless drama. A lot of people have an aversion to Christ because they're adverse to His people.
  3. Pick a career and pursue it for the glory of Christ. Find your passion and pursue a higher purpose within it. Our work should represent Christ well.
  4. Motivated by love, do something productive for the common good. We should pursue our passion with love instead of chasing comfort or prestige.
  5. Work hard with your hands, and be productive to win the respect of outsiders, and you will win the right to be heard.


"Find how God wired you, see what you're passionate about, and pursue your passion for a higher purpose."
