Message Monday 4/18/16 – God At Work Through Our Purposeful Work

Chuck Foreman – Teaching Pastor

Followers of Jesus do not have compartmentalized lives. God redeems and becomes Master of everything about us.

He gives His kingdom ethics and value to our work so that it blesses everyone and honors Him, no matter what our job is or what we do for a living.

God is in the business of reconciling all things back to Himself (Colossians 1:19-20).  When we live our lives and do our jobs in such a way that reflects the character and work of God in our world, we become active partners with our Creator to restore and reconcile everyone and everything in all creation back to Him. There is no higher calling than that. When we understand our work in this way, our vocations give expression to God’s work in our world. So…

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,
since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”

(Colossians 3:23-24)
