The Word Before Work

A Monday-Through-Friday Devotional to Help You Find Eternal Purpose in Your Daily Work

Jordan Raynor

About The Word Before Work

A weekday devotional to help Christians connect the gospel to their vocation and appreciate the eternal significance of their work—no matter what it is—from the entrepreneur, thought leader, and bestselling author of Redeeming Your Time.

We often treat the sixth day as the end of the creation account. But day six is just the beginning! It’s when God passed the baton to us and in essence said, “Go work and create like me.”
 
Too often Christians are led to believe that only pastors and full-time missionaries are doing work that is eternally significant. But Christians who work outside of vocational ministry roles—be they entrepreneurs, baristas, or stay-at-home parents—are looking for affirmation that their work is eternally impactful as well. Having researched more than 1,000 passages of scripture for its wisdom on vocation, Jordan Raynor provides 260 readings—one for each workday of the year—that offer Christians in any occupation biblical insights into what work means, why it matters, and how they should be working.
 
Guiding readers through selections in Old and New Testaments, The Word Before Work shows us that, no matter our calling, the work we do is central to God’s plans to restore fallen creation. Readers will not only gain daily inspiration to do work for the glory of God and the good of others, but will come away confident that our work has significance both for now and for eternity.
