Notes & Transcripts | Handout
Genesis 2:15 NASB95
Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.
Good? You can't be serious. Yes, indeed. After all, everything God created was good, was it not?
Work, then, is not a bad thing.
Genesis 3:19 NASB95
By the sweat of your face You will eat bread, Till you return to the ground, Because from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return.”
From this, we have many of our issues
Colossians 3:23 NASB95
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men,
You also do not go just to aggravate your boss
IF You go to Work for any reason other than to honor God, then you are there for the wrong purpose and God will not be in it!
And keep in mind, the new heavens and the new earth are not the absence of work! It's not the end of God's purpose but the redemption and fulfillment of it. We have no way to truly fathom what God's work assignments to us will look like. But we need to know they are there.
We can see that worship and praise will be part of it. Whatever else may be, it will not be frustrating to do it.
2 Corinthians 5:18 NASB95
Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,
How? Proclaim the love of God to others
Proclaim that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
Quit letting the lesser works of the day override this one.
Hebrews 9:15 NASB95
For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
Sometimes the hardest thing to remember is not to work--while there is a sermon in that about taking a Sabbath, the important part at this point is about the work we can NEVER do:
save ourselves from our sins.
Jesus did that.
