The Goodness of Work | Genesis 1:26-28 & 2:15
September 03 2023 · 37 min
by Bijan Mirtolooi
God placed humankind in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it (Genesis 2v15). All work, therefore, matters to God and is one of the ways we can reflect God as image bearers, engaging in creative work that stewards and multiplies resources for the flourishing and advancement of the human community.
The Fall of Work | Genesis 3:17-24 & 11:1-9
September 10 2023 · 36 min
by Bijan Mirtolooi
Genesis 3 shows us the impact of sin on work. As we saw last week, work was once a delight, but now it can feel like drudgery and duty. Gen 11 shows us that instead of looking to God, human beings seek an identity from what they build, what they do with their hands. This sermon will not only explore the impact of sin and the fall on work, but also explore how work can be healed by the gospel.
The Renewal of Work | 1 Peter 2: 9-10
September 17 2023 · 30 min
by Bijan Mirtolooi
In 1 Peter 2, Peter describes the whole church — not just clergy — as ‘priests’. This is just one of many places in the Bible which points to the doctrine of the ‘priesthood of all believers’. In all of our work we are called to worship God and serve others. If work can be worship that means the old divide between ‘secular’ and ‘spiritual’ vocations must come down. Practically, this sermon will explore how the gospel renews work, changing how we work, why we work, and who we work for.
Work & Rest | Hebrews 4:1-11
September 24 2023 · 28 min
by Bijan Mirtolooi
According to the bible, work and rest go hand in hand. God is serious about rest. During the exodus of the Israelites out from captivity by the Egyptians, God told His people that not only was he bringing them out of captivity but that also he would bring them into the promised land, the land of rest.
