“Jesus said to them, ‘My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work’” (John 4:34).
From what brought nourishment to his life, we learn from Jesus what it is to live with a sense of vocation. While many pursue particular occupations, in the foolish belief that a job could offer a purposeful existence, only a vocation of faith can bring meaning and fulfillment to to any and every task. Occupations are one-dimensional; performed within an occupied workspace, for the purpose of gaining a paycheck from the organization that hired you to do a specific task. To have a sense of vocation, however, is to understand that the call of Christ leaves no facet of life untouched by his Lordship. Only by doing all things unto the Lord, and not as unto men, can even the most menial task become a meaningful platform for showcasing the fruit of the Spirit.
