Overview

Revelation by Theology of Work Project

Revelation surprisingly provides some of the keenest insights in Scripture concerning the theology of work. Here, John invites us to step back and look at the overarching picture of God's work in the world- and to see what we do as part of that picture. When we recognize that our work is more than just a way to earn income, we begin to care more about the way we work and the effect it has on those around us and even thought the world. This Bible study helps us see that work done faithfully for God's glory has eternal value. This Bible Study is Part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series. Each book contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible Says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways. The lessons in each chapter are designed for thirty-minute lunch breaks, although they can be used in other formats as well. The Theology of Work Project is a resource to help you apply the Scriptures and Christian faith to your work. It includes wisdom from over 140 contributors from sixteen countries who attest that although we often find ourselves frustrated, exploited, or underappreciated as we work, God didn't intend it to be toilsome. So what was God's original plan for work? How do we claim our divine calling to work? Why does your work matter to God? By exploring the topic from Genesis to Revelation, we see a theology of work that shows us how to support ourselves, serve others, and find value in our vocations. Learn more at theologyofwork.org.
