Lent 2023: Working the Works of God
Series: Lent 2023
Speaker: Derek Vreeland
Work is good. Jesus himself said, "We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work." Work appears in the creation narrative before sin enters the story. God makes man and woman in his image and God gives them a job. Their primary job was to name the animals, care for the garden, and be fruitful and multiply, filling the earth. God has created each of us and now God is recreating us in Jesus for good works—four different kinds of good work. We have been created for the work of faith, the work of repentance, the work of justice, and the work of worship.
