All that we do is work, but we find joy in work by joining God in his work. Work is a vocation, a calling to serve God and others. Taking part in God’s work, loving Him and our neighbour, is worship. We enjoy God by loving and serving others, not ourselves. Without a sense of satisfaction through helping others, work cannot be enjoyable. It is the way God has wired us. Still, for most of us work is hard and draining. We should try seeing God in our work, seeking opportunities to enjoy God even when we don’t enjoy work. The good news of the gospel is that our work is not in vain, that God works through us and we are more than our work. Our identity doesn’t come from our work, but from Christ’s work on the cross in paying the penalty for our sin and being our salvation.
