Work as Idolatry and Work as Worship

2014 The Gospel At Work Conference


In this 25-minute session, Albert Mohler argues that, apart from Jesus, we are natural-born idolaters. How do we view our daily work in a way that prevents it from becoming the thing we trust to save us? We turn our work into worship.

It’s often taken for granted that to be a human being is to be a human at work. Just as we naturally work, we also are tempted naturally to turn our work into an idol. Albert points out that our work can either be an idol or worship. It’s paramount that, as believers, we make our work an offering of worship to the God who saved us.
