Title: God Rested
Scripture: Genesis 2:1-4
Speaker: Bill Gorman, BillG@ChristCommunityKC.org
The decline of traditional faith in America has coincided with an explosion of new atheisms. Some people worship beauty, some worship political identities, and others worship their children. But everybody worships something. And workism is among the most potent of the new religions competing for congregants. —Derek Thompson, “Workism Is Making Americans Miserable”
It is the belief that work is not only necessary to economic production, but also the centerpiece of one’s identity and life’s purpose.
—Derek Thompson, “Workism Is Making Americans Miserable”
>> God will never overwork you because…
- God rested.


>> God has given you the gift of rest so take it.
>> God will never overwork you because…
- God rested.
- You are a creature, not a slave.


>> God has set you free so stop slaving.
“Your idols have logged thousands of hours in your heart. So the way back will also be through practice-based training. You need to develop a set of simple practices that drive the truths of the gospel and God’s Word down into your heart.” - Matt Rusten, “The White-Collar Gospel” The Gospel Coalition


>> God has set you free so stop slaving.
A day.
Be still know and God
Cease
Delight


>> God will never overwork you because…
- God rested.
- You are a creature, not a slave.
- Jesus said “It is finished.”
