Church At Home

The Big Idea of this study is that while we are made for Monday, we do not always find Mondays easy. 

Work was interwoven into the story of creation and right from the very first chapter of Genesis we see God working. Right from the beginning we see God separating the waters from the heavens from the waters from the earth. Right from the beginning God created and invited us to come alongside of him and create together. God asks humans to come along and do a part, we were to name the animals. Naming the animals was not above God’s skill set, but God asks us to partner with him in the creation process.

God wants us to partner with Him in all the areas of our lives and continue this process of creation.

Today we talked how God continues to ask us to create in our work spaces, by naming the gifts that God has already placed in many of the lives of those we work with. There is an idea of common grace. Common grace says that God gives amazing gifts to people who don’t know him. What would it look like for us to take a close look at what those gifts are in other’s lives? What would it look like to encourage our coworkers with the great gifts that Jesus has already placed in their lives?

Questions for Discussion:

  1. What is the best job you ever had? Why did you like it so much?
  2. Have you ever had someone “pretend” to love you? Have you ever worked in a place where you felt genuinely loved? What things do you think that you can do to show people you work with that you love them?
  3. What do you think the best way is to show your co-workers that they are more than just an employee? More than a co-worker?
  4. What do you see in some of your co-workers that you admire? What would it look like to tell them this week what you appreciate about them?
  5. What is one idea that you are going to take away from this series and try and implement into your work world?
