In this episode, Courtney interviews her co-host, Missie Branch, as Missie discusses the chapter she authored of Women & Work. Chapter 2 is entitled, “Image-Bearing and Your Good Works.” Missie shares:

  • Her own work at Southeastern and how she has recently seen the faithfulness of God as she works, serves, and finishes up her Master’s degree
  • What it means that we are image-bears of God and why that’s important to our work
  • How our identity gets a makeover when we become believers in Christ
  • The amazing benefits of knowing Christ and how that relationship with Him infuses our work with even more meaning
  • What it means that we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand for us to walk in (Ephesians 2:10)
  • And more!
