Our Job Description

Praying for Our Army Work (Yesterday's Prayer Warriors: 11/100)

Lord, help us to do the kind of ministry that will bring You glory in the Army, the Nation, and the Nations. And give us the wisdom to look to Jesus as our ultimate example for how one ought to live and glorify God. We pray for the men and women at Fort Sill. (Staff: Chris and Kimberly Bean)

Our Job Description

“But, indeed, for this reason I have allowed you to remain, in order to show you My power and in order to proclaim My name through all the earth.” (Exodus 9:16)

Have you ever worked for a boss who never told you what he really wanted you to do? That can be frustrating. I think many Christians live their lives with the same frustration. Some folks really have no clue what God expects. When Moses was trying to convince Pharaoh to “let My people go,” Pharaoh just didn’t get it. Here’s what I think our job description is in a nutshell: Glorify God by becoming like Jesus. Glorifying God is what was expected of Pharaoh and what's expected of us (Isa. 43:7, 1 Cor. 10:31). The only way to do that today is by following Jesus, who was the only One who actually glorified God completely (Jn. 17:4, Jn. 14:6, 1 Jn. 2:6). It’s a lot easier to do a job right when you know what's expected.
