Occupation of a Christian

Your occupation is that thing which you OCCUPY yourself all the time, that with which you keep yourself busy, that which is always on your mind. If you follow Jesus Christ and you call yourself a Christian, then your OCCUPATION should be Jesus Christ alone and nothing else. Jesus said: “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you.”

People normally keep themselves busy with, trying to make a living, realizing their ambitions or seeking pleasure. But a follower of Jesus Christ always seeks to be PLEASING to Jesus Christ in everything that He does, in every aspect of His life. His mind is always on Jesus because He follows Jesus and Jesus determines His life. Jesus supplies in all his needs. Jesus guides him in whatever job he has to do. Jesus guides his footsteps and determines every aspect of his life, but the important thing is that we should be ASKING JESUS for guidance in every aspect of our life. If we do not ask guidance from Him, we will not receive guidance. Many people occupy themselves with religious exercises, occupy themselves with Bible study, attending church services, listening to other people. If you are a follower of Jesus, you LISTEN TO HIM, you PRAY, you ASK of Him, you WAIT on Him, you LISTEN UNTIL HE ANSWERS YOU, and He will answer you, He might not answer you straight away but He will answer you in His time. But because you are following HIM, you WAIT on HIM and he will answer in His time.

If you follow Jesus and you want eternal life you become part of the Kingdom of God, JESUS is your KING, He is your LORD, He is your MASTER but He does not rule over you, you SUBMIT yourself to Him and you SEEK HIS GUIDANCE. You offer yourself to Him as a servant and you WAIT ON HIM. You live your life to please Him. Your OCCUPATION IS JESUS CHRIST.

What is your occupation? What do you keep yourself busy with? If it is not Jesus then it will all perish. If you want life that endures forever then your OCCUPATION must be JESUS CHRIST and being pleasing to Him. May Jesus bless you.
