AN ETERNAL VOCATION
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
One's vacation often takes the most time and energy--it;s how we earn a living and it hopefully provides satisfaction. But there is another way of looking at vocation; the covenant of vocation, a phrase popularized by British theologian N. T. Wright. The covenant of vocation is the task given to every human being. Reflect the glory of God into the world and the praises of creation back to Him.
The primary difference between the two types of vocation is that one is temporal and the other is eternal. While our early vocation can be part of our covenant of vocation, as we work, heartily as to the Lord and not to men, it will inevitably come to a close.But our vocation as image bearers for God is an eternal one. As we transition to a new heaven and a new earth we will continue our eternal vocation of glorifying God.
God put eternity in our hearts for a reason, to remind us of our eternal purpose of honoring him. Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity
