Cultivate – A Biblical Theology of Work
This week we began a new series called Cultivate: Vocation, Work, and The Gospel. In this first week, we looked at how work fits into the grand narrative of redemptive history. Is work a necessary evil, or something instituted by God for human flourishing? What part does the fall play in our work? How does Jesus interface with this?
 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”  And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. (ESV)
