A Long Obedience – “How Work Works Best”

Refuge Church Atlanta https://www.refugechurchatl.com

Psalm 127

If we’re not careful, we become idle or make work an idol. God gave us both work and rest as gifts. But, it’s just like our sinful flesh and the devil to take a good thing and twist it to evil purposes. Rest, that deep assurance that God is in control and not us–twisted to laziness; and meaningful work, what every one of us must do to feel fully alive–twisted to an idol.

What God shows us this morning is that when we receive God’s best, we can work from our rest. When work is a gift from God, and He is at the center of our lives, ordering all the pieces, then our souls are at rest. And we won’t make an idol of work. But we won’t remain idle either.
