The culmination of our Work As Worship series was a massive service project with well over 100 PBC volunteers serving in the name of Christ. We cleaned up parks, made meals for families in need, worked on widows' houses, and did it all as an act of worship. This brief message is from the short worship "service" before our worship "serving."
When should we work? When should we rest? When should we minister? When should we serve? Our lives are so hectic & busy. I once heard someone say that the worst thing invented was the light bulb. That seems curious, right? The explanation behind that statement might just be true. With the invention of the light bulb, more work could be done. Days could be lengthened. As Christians, we hear about the Sabbath and the day of rest, but do we really know what that is all about? Let's see how it fits into our Work as Worship study.
What is the mission of the church? The answer is easy. It's the follow-through that is a little more difficult. The mission of the church is clearly to make disciples. We are commissioned to that end in Matthew 28. But before Matthew even came on the scene, there was another commission, another mandate from the prophet, Micah. In this short series titled, "Work as Worship", we are going to unpack the purpose of the church in week one & in week two we are going to come to a clearer understanding of Sabbath, what it means to rest & how do we serve in light of those truths. It's a short series, but a powerful one.
