Discerning The Question of Vocation

For most Christians who work, who are employed in some capacity, we are expected to diligently carry out certain job requirements that support the organization of our employment. Whether your vocation is an auto mechanic, school teacher, lawyer, engineer, truck-driver, military soldier, or even a pastor of a church, you work in an organization of some sort. Whether it’s the government, a private corporation, or in the non-profit sector, it’s an organization of some sort with its own express mission, values, and goals. So, theoretically, as Christians we must ask a very discerning question about vocation:

Can I carry out the responsibilities of my job, supporting the organization of my employment and remain faithful as a follower of Jesus?

Now I want to know the following…

  • Does your church do anything to equip the body of believers for discerning this question of vocation?
  • How should the church equip the body of believers for discerning this question of vocation?
  • If you are a parent, what are you doing to equip your children for discerning this question of vocation?
