“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”
Romans 10:14 KJV

I’ve established from the scriptures many times that your career is not your purpose. I’ve also reiterated that no one gets saved by merely looking at your life at school, work or any other place.

These submissions doesn’t in any way suggest or mean that your career is of no importance to the gospel.

While your career isn’t your purpose or the gospel, your career can be a very effective vehicle for driving your purpose and a platform for the preaching of the gospel.

Our opening scripture points us to the necessity of man in the preaching and advancement of the gospel’s message. Let’s look at it again.

“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”
Romans 10:14

While God is the author and finisher of our faith, man must preach it for another man to be saved. This is where our career comes to play.

Our career provides us an entry into the lives of people we might not have otherwise had. It offers us an entry into places with people who haven’t received Christ.

This is one of the reasons why you can’t afford to be complacent at your secular job. You don’t want an opportunity for preaching Christ quenched because of your poor work ethic. Excellence becomes the standard for you.

Will excellence in and of itself save anyone? Emphatically No! But can that provide a platform for people to be willing to listen to what you have to say? Definitely!

“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”
1 Corinthians 2:2

Christ is and remains our message. Our career, however, can be a vehicle for its mighty prevalence.
