The Blues Brothers felt they were 'on a mission from God' in their work. So do a surprising number of other people.
The Blues Brothers, who created a lot of destruction and good music in their attempt to save a nunnery, aren’t the only ones who have seen their work as a “mission from God.” So do more than half of religious Americans, according to useful studies cited in the Scientific Study of Religion.
It’s a good question for all of us, whether explicitly religious or secular-but-spiritual. Do we think we are serving a larger purpose in our salaried work or profession?

From The Urantia Book:
155:6.11 Never forget there is only one adventure which is more satisfying and thrilling than the attempt to discover the will of the living God, and that is the supreme experience of honestly trying to do that divine will. And fail not to remember that the will of God can be done in any earthly occupation. Some callings are not holy and others secular. All things are sacred in the lives of those who are spirit led; that is, subordinated to truth, ennobled by love, dominated by mercy, and restrained by fairness— justice. The spirit which my Father and I shall send into the world is not only the Spirit of Truth but also the spirit of idealistic beauty. (Jesus)
140:4.5 While light dispels darkness, it can also be so "blinding" as to confuse and frustrate. We are admonished to let our light so shine that our fellows will be guided into new and godly paths of enhanced living. Our light should so shine as not to attract attention to self. Even one's vocation can be utilized as an effective "reflector" for the dissemination of this light of life.
