Correct thinking about Work.


Correct thinking about Work.

There is a tendency to look at work as evil or as not having purpose. There are those who view work as hard.
God created work in the beginning of creation with Adam and Eve. God told them to tend to the garden. He said they could eat freely of the trees in the garden except for the one in the center.
Work can be toil or work can be redemptive at the hand of God. When Adam sinned in the garden, commerce began and man had to work to eat. Work was no longer free. We had to work by the sweat of our brow. God told Adam, “cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.” In the sweat of God’s face we shall eat bread – our business before sin was a constant pleasure to God, but now our labor shall be weariness.
Work is redemptive and has redemptive qualities. Because Jesus Christ redeemed you, work is a redemptive process. We can look at work as cursed or look at work as the redemptive finished work of Christ blood shed on the cross to set you free. Christ set you free from sin, death and the curse of the law. You are no longer a slave to sin but a slave to Christ. You are no longer a slave to work but a slave to Christ. 23 You were bought with a price [a precious price paid by Christ]; do not become slaves to men [but to Christ]. 1 Corinthians 7:23
Work is your ministry. We are all called to the ministry of reconciliation. This ministry is the reconciling of man to God.
“If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10
Work as a redeemed child of God taking dominion and authority over God’s creation to bring Honor and Glory to HIM. Work is blessed for the follower of Christ. Your work is worship. Your work brings pleasure to God.
