Vocation, vocation, vocation! We can’t emphasize it enough! Our callings and relationships are gifts from God, which you’ll discover in our topical spring issue of Higher Things Magazine. Vocation is precisely what Paul is talking about in Ephesians 2:10: “We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” As always, we start by foundationally understanding who we are as baptized children of God. From there we grapple with the Law and Gospel and where they come into play as we fulfill the various roles we walk in. And finally, we tackle a question that you have probably asked yourself at one time or another: “What do I do with my life?” From cover to cover, you’ll notice a recurring theme: Through faith in Christ, we have the freedom to live out our vocations for the good of our neighbor!
