Marketplace Evangelism

In Mark 16, Jesus gives His disciples the Great Commission: “And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel … to the whole creation.’” As followers of Christ, we are called to share the good news of the Gospel wherever we go. Does that include the marketplace? Today, host Rob West and Steve Moore talk about opportunities to share God’s Word.

 

·      Business people come in contact with many different people, and while doing that they can make a strong witness for Christ.

 

·      You can make a strong witness for Christ by always acting with absolute integrity and honesty, and by showing respect and concern for others.

 

·      We see work referred to as a gift in Genesis 2 and a gift from God in Ecclesiastes 5. We’re also commanded to work in 2 Thessalonians 3:10.

 

·      Business people have a unique platform for leveraging their Kingdom influence.

 

·      Of Jesus’ 134 appearances, 122 of them are in the marketplace. Of His 52 parables, 45 of them had a workplace context.

 

·      Of the 40 divine interventions recorder in the Book of Acts, 39 were in the marketplace.

 

·      In his book, God Owns My Business, Stanley Tamm writes, “Although I believe in the application of good principles in business, I place far more confidence in the conviction that I have a call from God. I am convinced that His purpose for me is in the business world. My business is my pulpit.

 

·      God strategically places His children everywhere. You have a unique position in the lives of your customers, employees, creditors, and even your competitors, to lead others to Christ. Take advantage of that position.

 

Here are a couple of questions we answered from our callers on today’s program:

 

·      What are some ways I can teach my son the value of saving and investing?

 

·      I have a pension that my union is allowing me to pull up to $25,000 out of with a reduced tax rate. Should I take that money out and put it toward paying off my credit card debt?
