Well, this is definitely in direct contrast to one of my last post but this one means everything to me.
The amount of bad witness and testimony that I have seen come from this is far-reaching. This is about a lot more than good work ethic’s. This is about understanding who we were always called to be.
Somehow or another, and definitely not by biblical design, the Church has divided people up and given them different levels of service. We’ve even use the term “secular“ (I have been guilty of this in the past) but, it is not a term that you will find in the Bible. When you observe a Jewish person‘s life they worked six days out of the week and they worked with excellence. If you get an opportunity, do some research on how much Jewish people have contributed to the world, research inventions and so many other things.
We as believers should be the standard by which everyone else is measured! But I don’t think that’s always how it is. The sad fact is -how we do life, especially how we work is a direct reflection of how people view Christianity. It doesn’t matter if you have spent an hour in the Bible & praying and then walk into work with absolutely no regard as to who you are and how you are reflecting God-Then I wonder are you actually reading it as a checklist or are you allowing it to transform you from the inside out?
It should not even be possible that we live like hell during the week. We should stand out in integrity. We should be set apart by the words we speak. Our employers should want 100 of us or even thousands. Go read the book of Daniel and see how they are set apart from a nation that they lived in by force. They could have been lazy. They could have not cared about what they did but they didn’t. They stood out and not just once but a lot. They were willing to sacrifice their lives and not compromise God.
Would you do the same thing?
Are you willing to step in the fire?
Are you willing to not indulge?
I get very passionate about this topic. It is why one of my mission statements that’s on my website is “life is ministry“. I mean this with the deepest level of love-Stop separating your life!
