Christian Workers Unite!

I Timothy 6:1-2

“Workers of the world unite!” became the rallying cry of the communist movement under Karl Marx. Marx saw the only way forward as a revolution by the proletariat (common people) against the ruling class. The New Testament likewise calls Christian workers to a revolution, but a much different kind of revolution. The passage we are exploring today helps us understand that when we view our work differently and do our work differently, it unleashes a powerful revolution in the world.
