How’s Work? — Resources on Vocation

2012 | by Trent Hunter | Category: Recommended Resources,Sermon Follow-Up

In the course of his Sunday sermon, “Life Is Short—Therefore…,” Ryan touched on the subject of vocation. In view of the shortness of life, in Psalm 90:17 the psalmist asks God to, “establish the work of our hands!” Concerning our every day work, Paul writes in Colossians 3:23, “work heartily, as for the Lord.”

With that in mind, below are some books and DSC sermons on the subject of vocation and the Christian life.
