“Mr. Business went to church, that’s what he did on Sunday, Mr. Business went to hell for what he did on Monday ”
The most intimidating aspect for many Christians in the workplace is the feeling of isolation like Daniel in the lion’s den and Joseph in Egypt, always asking ” what can one person do ? ” The role of a prophet like Obadiah who worked ” within ” king Ahab’s court to preserve the lives of so many prophets from Queen Jezebel while Elijah worked ” outside ” the royal court, challenging the prophets of Baal .
We spend 50 to 70 % of our waking hours are spend on activities defined by. World of work. ” It’s the one place where Christians and friends from other faith have to meet. The one place where the playing field is even, where both are subject to the same corporate culture, the same pressures. The one place where the friends from other faith can actually see the difference that Jesus can make to a life – not for a couple of hours over dinner but for 20, 30, 40, 50 hours a week over a couple of years…. Often the people who know us well don’t live next door, they work at the next desk ‘
The great visionary Dr. Billy Graham says ” I believe that one of the next great moves of God is going to be through the believers in the workplace ”
We often encourage people to go out and fish in pools and puddles when they are often sitting on a lake full of fish ” like the disciple after a hard night’s fruitless fishing , we need the resurrected Lord Jesus at large in the work world to show us where to put our nets.
God bless you abundantly and make you a blessing to so many across the globe.
