God and Work

June 11, 2017

Genesis 1:26-27; 2:1-3, 15 

What does the Bible say about work? Does it tell us that work is a necessary evil that we must do so that we can make money to support our lifestyles? Does it teach that our worth is tied to our position at work, or that there are more and less important jobs? No. The Bible shows us that as we work, we model God, we bring beauty to His creation, and we experience freedom and rest.

Sermon Outline: We must bear God’s image in our work.

  1. Work models God
