Authentic Manhood

Winning at Work & Home

Session 12:

Two Visions

of Work

slide3

The Prevailing View of Work

Work is a concession to life.

slide4

The Prevailing View of Work

1. “It’s just a job.”

2. It’s a necessary means to the

things I really want.

3. The ultimate goal is not to

work but to retire.

slide5

The Higher View of Work

Work is a calling of God.

slide6

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1

And God saw all that He had made and behold, it was very good.

Genesis 1:31

The Higher View of Work

1. God is a worker.

slide7

The Higher View of Work

1. God is a worker.

And God rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.

Genesis 2:2

slide8

The Higher View of Work

1. God is a worker.

Great are the works of the Lord;

They are studied by all who delight in

them.

Splendid and majestic is His work.

Psalm 111:2-3

slide9

What is man that You take thought of him,

And the son of man that You care for him?

Yet You have made him a little lower than

God,

And you crown him with glory and majesty!

You make him to rule over the works of

Your hands.

Psalm 8:4-6

The Higher View of Work

2. God created man as His

co-worker.

slide10

The Higher View of Work

2. God created man as His

co-worker.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

Ephesians 2:10

slide11

The Higher View of Work

3. What about “the curse”?

• Work was God’s will for Adam, not

God’s curse on Adam.

• Man’s sin made God-created work

harder. God curses the ground, not

the work of cultivating the ground.

“Cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.”

Genesis 3:17

Key Scripture That Summarizes Higher View of Work

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.

Colossians 3:23-24, NASV

Work hard and cheerfully at all you do, just as though you were working for the Lord and not merely for your masters, remembering that it is the Lord Christ who is going to pay you, giving you your full portion of what He owns. He is the one you are really working for.

Colossians 3:23-24, The Living Bible
