EXTRA SERMON: Another Sermon on How Jesus changes our Day Job

For the last 6 weeks, we asked, "Why Work?" Why work exists, why work is sacred, why work is broken, why work hurts, why work is redeemed, why work is redemptive?

We were guided by a book called, Every Good Endeavor by Timothy Keller. In the following talk, you'll here Timothy Keller explain 5 of the greatest implications for how the Gospel changes our work. It is really worth your 27 minutes, while you cook dinner or fold clothes.

 

1. “Faith gives you an inner ballast without which work could destroy you.”

2. “Faith gives you a concept of the dignity and worth of all work, even simple work, without which work could bore you.”

3. “Faith gives you a moral compass without which work could corrupt you.”

4. “Faith gives you a world and life view that shapes the character of your work, without which work could master and use you.”

5. “Hope.”
