One Step Closer

  • The Meaning of Work (1/21/2018)

    One Step Closer Every Day

    Spend a few minutes every day, reading, meditating and praying with God so that you can take one step closer to Jesus every day.


    Sunday – Ecclesiastes 2:17-26 – We live in a culture that rewards hard work. Why do you think Solomon found it so meaningless?

    Monday – Colossians 3:23-25 – Everything we do is an opportunity to bring glory to God. How can you turn your work into worship?

    Tuesday – Ecclesiastes 4:1-16 – For Solomon there is a connection between work and relationships. See if you can find the connection in this passage.

    Wednesday – Ephesians 6:5-20 – Think “employee/employer”. What does this passage have to say about our work ethic.

    Thursday – Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 – There is a difference between “busy” and “productive”. How can you be most productive for God?

    Friday – Proverbs 12:1-28 – In Proverbs, Solomon talks a lot about the virtue of hard work. Do you think he changed his mind in Ecclesiastes or is there something else he is saying?

    Saturday – Deuteronomy 8:1-20 – Remember, even your work is a gift from God that you cannot take credit for. Spend some time today thanking God for what you can do.


    Join us on Sundays at our Delhi Campus at 9:30am for our Traditional Service or at 11am for our Modern service or try our Price Hill Campus at 11am as we continue in our series UNSTUCK.

    This time of year it’s easy to feel stuck, in the doldrums, in the snow, in the rut, even in debt.  Join us this Winter as we break through the routine and engage the reality that you were created for more.  We will explore the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes as we learn to the secrets that Solomon learned to move beyond meaningless.
