Does work really matter to God? Most people believe that God cares about how people relate to one another, how people relate to him, and whether they cheat, steal, lie or break the Ten Commandments, but are surprised to think God wants us to work a certain way. God cares a great deal about our work. In fact, work is a major topic in the Bible, beginning with the statement in Genesis 2:15 that God created people to work. Not as a punishment, but as a pleasure and a way of relating to God himself.

The Theology of Work Project is providing desperately needed resources to pastors and the entire church on what the Bible has to say about our work. I hope that every pastor will preach regularly on how the Gospel changes the way we work and sometimes the work that we do. And I hope that every Christian will see the ways their work connects to God’s work!
—Tim Keller, senior pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
