Gospel-Centered Work

August 25, 2019 Speaker: Kevin Deyette Series: Colossians

Passage: Colossians 3:22–4:1

Title: Gospel-Centered Work

Text: Colossians 3:22-4:1

Notes:

Apologetics [noun]: Reseasoned arguments in justification of a doctrine or truth.

Bondservants:

  • Often voluntary (Lev. 25:39).
  • Educated, given opportunities (Joseph, Daniel).
  • Couldn't oppress by charging interest (Lev. 25:35-37).
  • Holidays extended to bondservants (Deut. 16:14).
  • Opportunities for freedom (Ex. 21:2; Deut. 15:14).

The Bible's story with slavery is one of redemption and restoration.

Our Christian faith is defined by giving ourselves rather than taking for ourselves.

God's expectations of employees: obedience.

Work hard to please God, not man.

Your bottom line is not your profit margin- it's how you steward the people God's given you.

Your business is His business.
