2014.06.13 Work

From Tim Keller's The Gospel in Life series, Session 6 "Cultivating the Garden"

The gospel changes
... the motivation for our work
... the ethics of our work
... our conception of our work

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28

Meaningful, restorative rest in Christ

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24

Serve Christ

++

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.

God designed us to work and cultivate, taking raw materials and creating something beautiful.
