God's Purpose for Work

Have you ever stopped to think about the purpose of work? What’s it for? Why do we need work to live fulfilled lives? Discover God’s purpose for work through a series of sermons that will ask and begin to answer three questions about the purpose of work from a Christian perspective:

Why do you want to work?

Why is it so hard to work?

How can we overcome the difficulties and find satisfaction in our work through the gospel?

Work takes many forms and is present throughout the seasons of life whether we’re a student, in the midst of a career, working as a stay at home parent, engaged in the meaningful activity of our retirement years, or any other work we find in front of us.

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
— Genesis 2:2-3

Throughout the series we will be drawing on themes from Tim Keller’s book: Every Good Endeavor—Connecting Your Work to God’s Work.
