What will we do in the New Earth?
When God created Adam and Eve in the garden, He didn't tell them to just sit around and do nothing. He told them to rule the Earth, to be fruitful and muliply. They were to manage the garden. They had jobs. In other words, God created work. It wasn't meant to be a four letter word like it is today. The Curse or fall of man made work menial, hard and frustrating. The good news is that on the new Earth, with the curse removed, work will once again be something we look forward to doing. In addition to our jobs ruling the new Earth (see last session), I believe we'll be given other jobs according to our individual talents and abilities. In other words, they'll be things that we enjoy doing, things that we were created to do. Our work will bring us joy and fulfillment and purpose and bring glory to God. Perhaps, you've always had a desire to paint, to write music, to dance, to cook, to write a book! But in this fallen world, you never had the chance to realize your dreams. The new Earth is a place where Dreams come True! It is the ulimate Disney World.
