Mark Roberts writes in his first months as executive director of Fuller’s De Pree Center for Leadership, he conferred with over 50 marketplace leaders, asking each of them, “How can we serve you?” The response he heard was almost always something like, “You can help me integrate my faith and my work.” Thesis: It’s not just trendy to seek to do everything in the Lord’s name, including those things that fill most of our waking hours. Doing our ordinary work in the Lord’s name is an essential, though often overlooked, element of our calling. So, whatever you do—whether managing staff, selling products, leading organizations, changing diapers, teaching children, building start-ups, preaching sermons, making films, writing books, molding clay, or cleaning houses—do everything, yes, everything, in the name of the Lord Jesus.
