Oh give thanks unto the Lord for he is good, yes he is good. We have the privilege to spread the gospel for another day. The question becomes; will you do it?


Today’s Prayer 

    Father, You know our hearts and heartaches. You have showered us with blessings and carried us through the valley of pain and sadness. Thank You for the godly influence of special people in our lives. Thank you for those who pray for and encourage us. We even thank You for the hard times and trials we have been through, for they have strengthened our faith. We praise You for giving us a spirit of hope, love, and acceptance, rather than allowing us to become angry, bitter, and downcast. we praise You God, from whom all blessings flow. May we, in return, bless You. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Equipped for the Workplace

May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever, Amen. Hebrews 13:20 – Proverbs 13:12

    The following information may surprise you but for those who are not retired, over 70 percent of our time is spent in the workplace, yet our spiritual training and teaching focuses on areas where we spend much less time. The workplace is the greatest mission field of our day, yet we don’t train workplace believers how to effectively integrate their faith into their workplace. The wall between Sunday and Monday still exists. Most believers don’t understand that all of life is spiritual, not just life on Sunday.

    A recent study found that 50 percent of believers have never heard a sermon on work; 70 percent have never been taught a theology of work; and 70 percent have never heard a sermon on vocation. Why do we focus on the fringes rather than the center where most people spend most of their time – the workplace?

    The great thing is that God is removing the wall of separation by speaking to pastors and workplace believers all over the world. I was reading an article just recently where a pastor shared how his church ordains their workplace believers for their calling to the workplace. Another pastor described their church’s commitment to integrating training for their workplace believers on the theology of work. Another told how they began a workplace ministry within their church for their workplace believers, and even integrated Sunday school programs specifically geared to help workplace believers understand their calling in the workplace.

We are entering a new era in the Body of Christ when workplace believers are seen as a remnant of the Body of Christ who need to be mobilized and trained for the work of the ministry to their own mission field-the workplace. Are you one of the men and women God is raising up for this task? Pray that God will help pastors understand and affirm this calling, and that they will respond by training the people of their churches for their own ministry to the workplace. When we reclaim the 70 percent, the remainder will be reclaimed automatically.

Quote of the Day

During an earthquake it sometimes happens that fresh springs break out in dry places which water and quicken the land so that plants can grow. In the same way the shattering experiences of suffering can cause the living water to well up in a human heart. ~Sadhu Sundar Singh~
