Work Matters to God
FALL 2013: Goal: To develop a theology of work!
WHY DO WE NEED A THEOLOGY OF WORK?
As Christians, we should have a spiritual perspective on all significant matters.
“When work is soulless, life stifles and dies.”
Where do we begin to construct a Theology of Work?
EVERYTHING STARTS WITH GOD!
Constructing a Theology of Work - God is the original worker.
Text: Genesis 1:1-5; 1:26 – 2:3; 2:15
The concept of work actually begins with God Himself.
God is not perennially at rest, nor is He disconnected from His creation.
God is portrayed throughout the Bible as a God who works!
Work has dignity, meaning, purpose and significance because God has sanctified it with His blessing.
