Scripture texts: Genesis 1: 26-31; 2: 1-2, 8-17; John 17:1-5 Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland Date: 22 January 2017
This sermon examines the Biblical view of work, one of the three creation ordinances. The four main points considered include: the distinction between work and employment; the effect of work on the individual and on the community; the relationship between human work and God; and the harm caused by unemployment due to the human need to work. In conclusion, the entire theme of human work is seen in the light of Christ’s incomparable redemptive work.
