A Christian Approach to Work (Colossians 3:22-4:1 // Genesis 2:15-17)

By | miscellaneous, Talks

With the word “Monday” used as a mild curse word and phrases like “TGIF” a celebration – it can be hard to know how we as Christians should approach our work. In this talk, Matt Heaton takes us through the Bible’s approach to work: how God called us to work before sin even entered the picture; how God created work to be paired with rest; and how work can bring us great joy as we use our skills for the betterment of society. A helpful talk for thinking through our modern pitfalls to how we approach work, and an encouragement that there’s one area in our life where we only ever need to rest, and that’s in Christ’s finished work on the cross on our behalf to bring us back into relationship with God.

Christmas is the time of year we celebrate a saviour who came into this world to seek and save the lost. But according to the angels’ first announcement of Jesus’ coming, in order to be found by God we need to get God’s favour so that we can have peace with God. And this is what Christmas is all about: God’s gift of peace to us in the form of a baby, Jesus.
