February, 2013 (From http://orchardhillchurch.org/resources/listen) The intent of this series is to clearly communicate one truth. Whatever work you do…matters to God! It matters more than you will ever guess. It matters for all of eternity. It matters because God created us to do good work. The story of the scriptures starts with God working, “In the beginning God created…”

We want to inspire people to remember that all that they do honors and glorifies God, as they do all of life on purpose with excellence and passion, in tune with God. We honor and glorify God when we do our paid and our unpaid work, when we do work in the marketplace, or in our homes, or within our leisure. We honor God when we do our work with excellence and with passion.

I have really enjoyed this teaching series. It is so important to remember that no job or deed is more "sacred" than another.  Whether you are a preacher, doctor, custodian, stay at home mom, fast food worker, school teacher, administrator, banker, retired grandparent, you all are equally important in God's eyes.

Whatever you do...matters to God!

What an amazing thought to begin each day.  Every day is a mission because your true home is in heaven.  When you wake up in the morning, ask yourself, "What is my mission today?"

I saw a video a couple years ago intended for high school seniors. I don't remember who it was but the message has stuck with me. (I believe it applies to ALL of us as life always includes CHANGE.)  So many young people get hung up on these questions:

What am I meant to be?

Is this really what God wants me to do?

What if I make the wrong choice?

What if I choose the wrong path?

What was I made for?

The answer is clear.  What brings you great joy? That is what you are made to do...

...as long as you do it ALL for the GLORY of God!
