    Real Life with Pastor Steve

    September 3, 2021

    Let me ask you a question… do you view you job, your hobbies, your activities as sacred… or non-sacred? 

      Sacred … not a word we use often… but it’s another word for holy… something that reflects the holiness of God. 

       So now… the answer may seem easy.  Most of us automatically put jobs like “pastor” or “missionary,” or activities like “going to church” or “prayer” or “serving the poor” as sacred.

      Therefore, we then put a job like “teaching” or “business owner,” or activities like “fishing” or “baseball” or even “sex” in the non-sacred category.  It just seems to make the most sense to us.

      However, can I tell you that through God’s eyes… He created us to live every part of our life as sacred, to view it all as sacred, to reflect the glory of God… not just the parts that seem “religious.”  There is not supposed to be a line, or a barrier between the sacred and non-sacred… we’ve put it there. 

      Folks, Monday matters as much to God as Sunday… it’s just as holy.  So on this Labor Day Weekend, remember – that your work, your job matters to God, all your activities matter to God.  Why? Because you matter, because you were created to glorify God in all you do… and Jesus has come to actually make that possible again.  Happy Labor Day! And that’s… real life.  ~ Pastor Steve Rowe – Eaglebrook Church
