…No Common Act

If may be difficult for the average Christian to get hold of the idea that his daily labors can be performed as acts of worship acceptable to God by Jesus Christ…We must offer all our acts to God and believe that He accepts them.  Then hold firmly to that position and keep insisting that every act of every hour of the day and night be included in the transaction…Let us practice the fine art of making every work a priestly ministration.  Let us believe that God is in all our simple deeds and learn to find Him there…Let every man abide in the calling wherein his is called and his work will be as sacred as the work of the ministry.  It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it.  The motive is everything. Let a man sanctify the Lord God in his heart and he can thereafter do no common act. (Tozer, Pursuit)
