Well, it is certainly “another thing I have to do.” It is something God commands, among others. But I don’t think I should ever look at his commands as burdensome. The mission, particularly, is at the center of God’s plan for the world, and it is a great privilege for us to be a part of it. What is needed is for each believer to do all things to the glory of God, to take the gifts and abilities God has given and to find out how these gifts can be used to bring godly change in his environment. When we seek to do our daily work to God’s glory, we will inevitably shape that part of culture in which God has placed us. And we will at the same time be drawing other people to see Christ in us and themselves to come into his kingdom.
