Cultural Capital: Christianity for the Common Good.

Six ways the Gospel engages us in the normal aspects of our lives to build culture.

The Gospel engages the normal work of our lives to contribute cultural capital.

Christianity is for the common good (Matthew 5:14-16).

God’s Purpose for work is his glory and our good (Genesis 1 and 2).

What is “Work”?– any task we engage in to organize, cultivate, or build the small portion of the created order we are entrusted with by God

Jesus intends us to engage the portion of creation we are entrusted with for the glory of God and the good of others (Matthew 22:34-40)

How we contribute cultural capital with our work:

1) Our cultural capital benefits when we work ultimately for the Lord (Colossians 3:22-25)

2) Our cultural capital benefits when we work diligently (Proverbs 10:4; 12:27; 13:4; 21:5).

3) Our cultural capital benefits when we pray for and about our work (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18).
