Business Community

In our focus on the least, the last, and the lost, remember that we have a responsibility to every person that God brings into our lives. This includes the business community, sales clerks, shop owners, night managers, business people, even CEO's.

The opportunities are endless...just like God's love. In each scenario we have a challenge to sort out the best approach and to seize the moment to the glory of God. Here's what I suggest:

1. be yourself - holy, transparent
2. depend on the Holy Spirit - He goes before you and travels with you.
3. convey the good news - in relevant, Biblical truth
4. ask for a response - trust and obey

Hallelujah!

Colossians 4:4-6 (MSG)4 Pray that every time I open my mouth I'll be able to make Christ plain as day to them. 5 Use your heads as you live and work among outsiders. Don't miss a trick. Make the most of every opportunity. 6 Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.
