My Work, God’s Plan

My Work, God’s Plan

Overview | Sermons | Bible Study | Books | Resources


On average people spend one third of their life-time sleeping and one third at work. Not voluntarily, many of us might add.

We often can’t wait for each working day to finish, for our holidays to arrive, and many of us have been dreaming of retirement since our twenties! For others, work is their happy place where they change the world and live their dreams.

But what is the point of spending so much time at work when life is so short? Why do we work? Should we work? What is the Bible’s view on work?


#1 Made To Work
Genesis 1:27-2:15
#2 Working For The Lord
Ephesians 6:5-9
#3 Doing The Lord’s Work
1 Corinthians 15:1-2; 50-58
