Hope Carrier Initiative Rewind: Garden City


  1. Read Genesis 1:28 AMPC and Colossians 3:17. God has placed you in multiple gardens (areas of life). How are you cultivating those through your words and actions? Where are you releasing God's kingdom, or where may you be releasing worldliness?
    1. For those of you who are hearing this message for a second time, what has changed in your work since then?

  2. Read Genesis 1:26. In what ways, does “work” (job, school, family, social media) rule over you? What would it look like for you to take authority over it and live God’s created purpose for your life?

  3. Read Genesis 3:5. Eve tried to get from the world what she already had in God. Where are you looking for purpose (meaning, status, freedom of time, etc.) in the world instead of walking out God’s created purpose for your life?

  4. Read Romans 5:17 and Revelation 21:1-3 and 22:5. We have so much more in Jesus than we lost in Adam. Our work is worship, will be rewarded, participates in the Garden City, and is practice for eternity. How does this help shape your perspective of the work God has entrusted to you?


Thank You, Jesus, for blessing us with a purpose. May we let You shape our view of work, and the truth that we were created to work with You.
