“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭2:15‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Most of my life I’ve heard preachers talk about what Christ came to release me FROM- sin, eternity in hell, separation from God, slavery to self and emotions. Rarely, until Church on Sunday, have I heard anyone talk about what He released me TO… God created me (and you) to work! He released us to create and to be productive. When you and I embrace this purpose as a gift, viewing work as a blessing rather than as a curse, we are freed up to find fulfillment in glorifying God through whatever work we do.

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬🚦
