Behind all human rebellion and sin is a faulty picture of God. The quality of our relationship with God depends on the way we imagine God. We cannot get rid of God without creating God substitutes - idols. Idolatry is looking to something to give you the kind of hope, the kind of value, the kind of safety that only God himself can give you.

Grace Changes Our Work
Grace Changes Everything • May 14, 2017 • Paul Stewart
Human beings were given work to do in the garden, before the fall - before sin and before anything was wrong with the world. Work, therefore, is something we were designed to do. But work, like everything else, has been corrupted and the meaning and motivation behind our work has changed. Without God work becomes about self-provision or self-justification. With God our work can become the gracious expression of creative energy in the service of others.
