Being part of society as a Christian means living out your faith in the church, the government, and the family. Lutherans call this The Three Estates. At the same time, every individual is called by God to do something in the world, known as your vocation. This can be a job, a volunteer program, or even being a parent. Both your vocation and living in The Three Estates are beautiful and rich parts of being a Lutheran. 

Rev. Dr. Alfonso Espinosa examines both of these theological concepts to help you see how to take up God's greatest call: showcasing God's light through you and into the world. Learn how to express Christ's light in each portion of your life as you go about your daily routine. Understand how God's light is upon you in a vertical calling and how it is through you in a horizontal calling. As you combine all of these callings, you will ultimately see how your life continuously points back to Christ and His plan for you. With a closing chapter on the theology of Sanctification, you'll find yourself shining Christ's light in every moment of your day.
