What bearing does our work have in light of eternity? How does our theology of heaven shape the way we show up to the needs of the world in the here and now?

Tune in to hear an honest and eye opening conversation with Jordan Raynor, author, speaker, and Executive Chairman of Threshold 360. In this conversation we discuss 'The Great Commission', Heaven, and Jordan's most recent book The Sacredness of Secular Work: 4 Ways Your Work Matters for Eternity (Even When You're Not Sharing The Gospel).


On becoming fully alive:

"When you understand that God cares about a hundred percent of your time... you become fully alive."

On the Great Commission:

“The Great Commission is indeed great, but it's not the only one. And there are terrible dangers in treating it as the only commission..."

On the gospel reaching all of creation:

"The gospel is not just good news for the spiritual realm of souls... it is also good news for the cosmos."
