Dualism remains a problem for many Christ followers. They compartmentalize their lives and miss the presence and light of God in every moment, breath, and context of life. Here are some scriptural truths on the matter:
- Matthew 5:14: “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”
- Proverbs 4:18: “The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day” (NIV).
- John 8:12: “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’”

Every job, every assignment, our family, our leisure and whatever pathway that the Holy Spirit may lead us, is ministry.
