How Do I Work for the Glory of God?
This year’s THINK conference was all about doing the work you’ve been given to the glory of God no matter what you do. The struggle to make work more than just a job is one that we can all relate to, but Dr. Dan Doriani encouraged us to see our work as more than a job but as an opportunity to glorify God.
The reason we host a conference called THINK every year is simply to encourage people to engage their minds and think about how truth from God’s Word impacts our lives. THINK offers an incredible opportunity to sit under robust theological teaching that’s also extremely practical. If, in the past few months, you feel like your faith has grown stagnant or you’ve become complacent in your workplace, can I encourage you to take two or three truths taught in the conference and apply them to your life?
This year we’ve created a THINK debrief discussion guide designed to help you move from just understanding content to actually applying it. This is a great resource to work through in either a group or personal setting.
Another way to keep engaging with the content is to share the conference with a coworker. This is a great way to share the gospel with someone you work with who may also feel weary about their work life.
How To Keep THINKing about Work for the Glory of God
