"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Revelation 14:12-13
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”

We all have jobs. We are teachers, shop owners, contractors, plumbers, nurses, firefighters, as well as a variety of other things. We have vocations and many of us were trained for the jobs we do. Some of us wish we still had more training for we feel a bit shaky on the job, tons of responsibility and little margin for error. Yet when it comes to our Christian Vocation, what are we to be doing, learning, getting done in the mean time between Christ's first and second coming? What training should we be giving to others and receiving ourselves? The good news is that we find a lot of these answers in the book of Revelation. This resistance document would not be much of a document if it didn't encourage us in what and how to resist the powers that are waging war against the Lamb. And we all have jobs to do. Join us as we look at The Vocation of the Saints.
