When Christians ask about vocation--or "calling"--we usually mean, "Is God calling me to a particular job, profession or type of work?" This question matters because God is interested in our work. Because he is, it's sensible to ask what he wants us to do. We see in the Bible that God does indeed call some people to particular work, and this provides all of us with various kinds of guidance for our work. In this Bible study, we will explore biblical accounts of these "calls" in depth--keeping in mind that "calling" goes deeper than any one aspect of life, such as work. We will explore the calling to particular work in light of many of the biblical passages related to calling.
This Bible study is part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series. Each guide contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways. The lessons in each chapter are designed for thirty-minute lunch breaks, although they can be used in other formats as well.
