The Sovereignty of God and the Washing of Dishes
If every day and every space within that day is subject to the lordship of Christ, there is no such thing as holy space and less holy space. In fact, what many of us really need to do is not drop changing diapers to go into the world and "make a difference," but submit our changing of diapers to the lordship of Christ. Every act, no matter how menial, should be an act of worship, and it can be if we are doing it in gratitude and prayer and committing it to the glory of God.
The work of the Christian, in a million subsequent echoes of the Incarnation, is to make sacraments of our moments, infusing the spiritual into the ordinary and treating the ordinary as spiritual. The idea, Sinclair Ferguson writes, is that we are "doing the Spiritual thing naturally and doing the natural thing Spiritually."
Abraham Kuyper famously preached:There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: 'Mine!'"
And therefore there is no square inch of our daily lives over which we should not cry, "His!," and act as if it were so.
