Many Christians live a spiritual life and a secular one.
Spiritually, they enjoy God’s fellowship, praying to Him, and learning from the Bible.
Secularly, they enjoy world’s affairs, like eating, sleeping, working, and exercising. Some prefer such activities over the spiritual ones. Others consider such activities a waste of time. Many are caught in the middle, finding no peace in either.
We live in a natural world with its limitations and a spiritual world with its unknowns. But we do not have to live separate lives.
On earth, Christ had no divided life. Its entirety was on pleasing His Father. John 8:29.
Paul did not do certain things for God, and others for himself. He did everything for God’s glory, including eating and drinking. 1 Cor. 10:31.
Our body is not innately offensive to God. He created them and was not ashamed of His work. On earth, Christ also took on a body.
All we do can be sacred if we live according to God’s will, as we understand it from the Bible. Our different acts become acts of worship, as sacred as prayer or the Lord’s Supper, totally accepted by God. Every act can glorify Him.
Whatever our profession or our calling is, they are not inferior to that of a pastor. Why we do certain thing is typically more important than what we do.
Having said that, certain things we do are more important. Some people are more useful to the society because talents given by God differ. But God accepts with pleasure all of us and our different types of activities.
Also, do not associate certain places (e.g. church building) or certain time (e.g. Good Friday) as more sacred. This is spiritual slavery. God is spirit. The key is to worship Him in the Spirit and in truth. John 4:24.
All these may be difficult to accept, and habit is difficult to change. Meditate and pray on them. Ask God to help us enjoy and even excel in our different activities. Be a witness for Him in them and honor Him. Be as enthusiastic and dependent on Him about the activities as if we were spreading the Gospel in an Amazon jungle.
To conclude, our entire life can be good and holy, and every simple task can be an act of worship.
Summarized from the last chapter “The Sacrament of Living” from “The Pursuit of God” by A.W. Tozer.
在世上, 基督沒有分裂的生活, 祂整个生命是为取悦父神（約翰福音8:29）。
如果我们跟据從聖經中了解，然后按照上帝的旨意生活，那么我們做的一切都可以是神聖的。我們每一個舉動都可成为敬拜, 如祈禱或聖餐一样神圣, 都是神所完全接受的。每一個舉動都可以榮耀祂。
无论我们从事什么职业, 无论我們的呼召是什么，絕不遜色於我們的牧师。一般来说重要的不是我们所做的事, 而是我們為什麼做那些事。
