My proposition is simple: when we forget the importance of the workplace in God’s plans, the cause of Christ suffers. We believe that this is both biblically and historically true. However, all over the world men and women are beginning to understand how tactically significant the workplace is to God’s Kingdom plans. When the church calls its people to focus inward (on the church organization), it shrinks. On the other hand, when the church launches people into the world and honors their calling to the workplace, the church grows. We think that it’s time for men and women in the workplace to fulfill their destiny as the leaders that God called them to be.
That’s why Walt Larimore and I wrote Going Public with Your Faith. In this ground breaking book, we propose four radical ideas that could change the way people think about work and evangelism.
Big Idea One: The workplace is the most strategic place of Kingdom influence for most Christians.
Big Idea Two: Evangelism is a process, not an event.
Big Idea Three: Our job in evangelism is to discover where God is already at work in people’s lives and join him there.
Big Idea Four: Being a person of spiritual influence is every Christian’s calling, not just the responsibility of a gifted few.
In the next few blogs I’ll speak to each idea breifly.
These four Big Ideas are discussed in detail in Going Public with Your Faith. To order a copy click here.
