The Gospel And Work

Where we’ve been in the last couple of weeks

  • Work was made to be good
  • Like everything, work in this world is corrupted.
  • Work: more than just making a living

The story of the world:

  • We all know that there are things wrong in the world
  • We all want to be part of making it better

The danger: all our stories are at risk of idolatry

God’s goal for us: a redeemed character

  • Work is an opportunity to display a Christlike character
    1 Cor 10:31-33
  • Work is oriented towards God, and intended to honour God
  • Work is an opportunity to ‘keep in step with the Spirit’ (Gal 5:25)

Putting the theory ‘to work’

  • In the vocational workplace
  1. Where do you find value in your work?
  2. What are the idols of your workplace?
  3. What is your ‘career trajectory’?
  4. How do you treat others?
  5. How do you show leadership (if you have opportunity)?
  • More broadly in our life’s work
  1. What are your goals for life?
  2. Where do you find value in what you do?
