Why Work Matters - Tim Keller

All Christians are engaged in God's work, not merely Christians working in ministry. When a baker bakes bread or a musician writes beautiful music, they are the means through which God provides food and art to the world. Therefore, Christianity believes that all work has dignity and should be celebrated. Yet, Christians must be careful not to divorce their faith from their work. We cannot bifurcate what we confess on Sunday from how we actually live the other six days of the week. Every profession will possess unique challenges that Christians must learn how to navigate in order to glorify God in their specific field. This lecture was given as part of the Gospel & Culture Lecture series featuring Dr. Timothy Keller. Tim is the Founding and Senior Pastor Redeemer Presbyterian Church. Redeemer has become especially effective in reaching Manhattan professionals from many diverse occupations and cultural backgrounds.
