“Bright Future”

“T

oday or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. (James 4:13) Next year has been concluded in the agenda of God. In case you are wondering what the year has in store for you. You should never define your tomorrow, or the year ahead based on the pain you went through yesterday, because if you do, you will be short-changing yourself. If you are planning for new businesses, jobs or ideas, the Lord wants you to submit it to Him. Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Today, we are going to continue our journey of understanding: We must recognize that although God has a great plan for 2014, it is essential for our minds to grasp this truth in order for it to become our experiential reality. The pain, hurt and disappointments of 2013 will not follow us into the coming year and in addition, we are

not coming out of 2013 emptyhanded. So look forward with anticipation. God’s word says ‘The expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off’ (Proverbs 23:18). Isaiah 43:18-19 “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. God has filled the year with His goodness. We must confess the word of God in order for this to be our reality. 2014 is a good year for you. It is an exceptional year for you, irrespective of what you experienced in 2013. tThe Message translation of Matthew 9:29 we are told ‘He touched their eyes and said, “Become what you believe”. We are what we believe; be careful therefore about what you allow to go on in your mind. 2014 is a glorious, abundant, victorious and joy-filled year. You will be what you believe. Your reality is the product of your thinking. You will no longer be chasing after blessings, they will be chasing after you. He is making a way in the wilderness

Marketplace Ministries

or about 39 years now I’ve been in pastoral ministry. I’ve loved it and honestly couldn’t see myself doing anything else. That is, until recently. I’ll get to that in a minute. Over the years I’ve had people ask me, “Why do you like being a Pastor?” or “Why did you choose to become a Pastor?” I can remember my own sons asking me similar questions. I use to take great pleasure in saying something like, “I love knowing that what I’m doing is making an eternal difference in people’s lives. I kind of feel sorry for people who have to go to work and do things that have no eternal significance.”

amount of influence in people’s lives as we are given the privilege to teach, counsel, and guide people in matters of spiritual significance. But honestly, people who are out in the market place on a daily basis have an equally enormous opportunity to represent Jesus and influence by living according to Christian principles that some in full time Christian ministry may never have. Actually when it comes to representing Jesus, who is more effective, a paid salesman, pastors, or satisfied customers, business men and women in the marketplace?

Over the years, however, I’ve changed my perspective. Here’s what I mean. One doesn’t have to be a pastor, missionary, or in some kind of “full time Christian service” in order to make a difference for eternity. You can be a plumber, sales person, business owner, or whatever and make a difference in people’s lives in ways that have eternal implications.

Now back to my opening statement about loving ministry and not seeing myself doing anything else. Just recently, about 2 years ago, I had the opportunity of becoming certified as an Independent Coach, Trainer, and Speaker with the John Maxwell Team. Since then, it has opened up a whole new world for me as I’ve had the opportunity of working with business men and women in practically every field from sales to service . . . from entrepreneurs to long-time employees teaching and training others in leadership.

Don’t get me wrong, being a Pastor is great and certainly positions one to have an enormous

Some are a part of the church I pastor but many aren’t. So now, by God’s grace, He has

Maybe subconsciously I was giving that answer, in part, so they, too, would have a desire to “go into the ministry” like dear old dad.

expanded my influence in ways it wouldn’t have been felt if only focused on a local ministry. So what’s the point? Simply this: you can make a difference for God’s Kingdom and for His purposes whoever you are and whatever you do. Is God calling you to full time Christian ministry? Then by all means answer the call. Is God calling you to be salt and light at your place of business? Then by all means, represent Him well. Is God calling you to excel at your business so you can help fund His purposes on this earth? Then by all means make as much as you can and give as much as you can. I don’t see a distinction in God’s Word between spiritual and non-spiritual work. In fact, I believe God calls us to make a difference wherever He has planted us and through whatever He has gifted us to do. This world is only temporary and the short amount of time we have here needs to be used for His purposes. I love Paul’s words in Colossians 3:23 (New Living Translation) “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” So, to make this real practical, here are some questions to ask yourself as a businessman or woman in the marketplace to help assess your effectiveness for the Kingdom: • How well do your attitudes and actions represent Jesus? • What are the people you work with learning about your Heavenly Father through your actions? • What do your work habits communicate about your values as a follower of Jesus? • What steps could you take so Christ’s character becomes more evident in your life? Now, just for the record, I don’t see myself leaving full-time pastoral ministry anytime soon. But . . . if I did, I know my influence for Him could be just as great because the reality is, it is not what you do, but who you are that matters. So be an attractive marketplace minister for Jesus wherever He has placed you and through whatever He has called you to do!

In pursuit of Kingdom Business

Joseph Wilson Chairman, BMFI

I

n today’s Christian business circles terms like Kingdom Business, Business as Mission, God @ Work are abuzz with seminars and workshops encouraging entrepreneurs, business persons and professionals to subscribe to it. Amidst it many takers have shelter under the old school of thought based on the existence of long established businesses in the marketplace since grandfather’s times that declare practicing biblical principles in business is not practical. There is yet another group that claims to be a BaM company or a Kingdom Business just because they channel sizable revenue for charity, ministry, missionary support or for extending God kingdom while business-as-usual transactions continue like any other company. Their intentions though noble and benevolent the modus operandi to earn the money may not be as per biblical principles; many ironically employ anti-biblical methods that are usually corrupt and un-righteous. Then again mere compliance to a few biblical principles here and there doesn’t qualify your company or business to become a Kingdom Enterprise. So what makes a Kingdom Business? It got to be overall compliance – meaning the whole gamut of your business transactions and activities. And biblical standards for business are just contrary 6

to what the world advocates. It starts with conviction about the ownership of the business, the purpose, change to a serving attitude, upholding righteousness & integrity and applying biblical principles in all aspects of business in the way that brings honor to God – whether it is personnel management, financial discipline, taxation, honoring commitments, compliance to statutory obligations and extends to even the least function of the business. Matthew 5:43-48 will illuminate the above aspect. “You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best—the sun to warm and the rain to nourish—to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-themill sinner does that.” In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live w w w . 5 Ta l e n t s M A G . c o m

Profane talk and abusive language in business and daily transactions can defile you and the organization. Jesus said, “It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth.” Matthew 15:11. Careless usage of words can be an obstacle to entering God’s kingdom. Don’t grieve the Holy Spirit the guarantor to your eternity. Ephesians 4:29-31 cautions us - Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift. Don’t grieve God. Don’t break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don’t take such a gift for granted. Make a clean break with all cutting, backbiting, profane talk. Be gentle with one another. People around me who often heard my volley of abusive words are astounded by this permanent

change in my language. It was the same with anger too. The Bible counsels “Don’t let the sun go down on your anger, and don’t give the Devil an opportunity.” Eph 4:26-27. Prov 29:22 & 22:24-25 expounds it: “An angry person starts fights; a hottempered person commits all kinds of sin. Don’t hang out with angry people; don’t keep company with hotheads. Bad temper is contagious—don’t get infected”. Your anger can permeate through your organization starting with you at the top to the least contagiously carried over through the hierarchy.

There are several such biblical virtues and principles that got to be imbibed into the management system of a kingdom enterprise practicing whatever you preach in your home, organization and spheres of influence. In the forthcoming articles we will deal more about what it makes a kingdom enterprise.

he Christian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) has completed three years of successful existence. Like any other new startup which relies on the good-will and the selfless support of its members, the Chamber has seen ups and downs, faced uncertainties and doubts, resource and finance crunch etc. Every time such challenges occurred, the Almighty God came up with the answers by bringing into our fold, persons of very strong resolve and resource. So, as we look back we can say with great confidence that, the future of the CCCI is very secure and bright confidence that our organization will surely redefine the commerce and trade scenario through its goal of :UNIFIED GROWTH FOR EXECELLENCE” as we grow.

growth is all about reaching out to the undeserved and providing them opportunities that can help them enhance their social and economic status.”(Gauri Arora, Editor- Interface.) The present opportunities are not to be passed over especially by the economically weaker communities, among which Christians figure quite prominently.

“We are at a point where several opportunities are being thrown up by the enviroment that can, in the long run, help us become a stronger player in the global economy,” as expressed by Ravi Venkatesan, Chairman Microsoft. This applies fully to the economic scenario within the country too. A proactive approach needs to be adopted “Emerging countries today are becoming aware in order to claim a suitable place on the business of the importance of balanced inclusive growth canvas of the country if any good is to come to as a means to sustainable development.

“Business Seva” -A note from Michael

he work of Partners Worldwide in India is focused on supporting and building up local leadership. These local affiliates, Business Seva and Aatma Vikas, are empowering Christian business people, creating sustainable jobs, developing communities and eradicating poverty. These entrepreneurs are called to use their business to uplift the poor, the oppressed, and the marginalized.

The sessions were focused on how in the Bible God used one person such as Adam, Abraham, Moses, Joseph, Daniel and Esther to impact their nation or community. Business Seva leaders were challenged to be that one person whom God uses to impact their sphere of influence, their community, and the nation. Finally, chapter managers were commissioned by pastors and leaders to accomplish greater exploits for God.

Our local affiliate, Business Seva is growing exponentially, with 14 chapters throughout India and stretching into Sri Lanka and Myanmar. On November 13 through 15, Business Seva, organized their 2nd annual Chapter Managers’ Training Program. Thirtythree participants had an enriching experience learning from each other and from esteemed Business Seva staff members. They were encouraged in their callings to serve their communities so that all may have life and have it abundantly.

Our network in India and beyond cannot do this important work without your support. Aside from organizational fundraising goals, India region specifically needs to raise $55,000 to accomplish our goals. Our goal, for 20132014, is to create 982 jobs, to sustain 7,993 jobs, to build 4 new chapters, and to impact the countries of India, Sri Lanka and Myanmar. Will you help us accomplish these things to the glory of God?

father David walked, then I will lengthen your days.” ‘One Greater than Solomon’ echoed the same in the following verses in Matthew 6:33 “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”. Is seeking wisdom the same as seeking the kingdom of God? Well it depends, on what you understand by wisdom. The Bible speaks about two kinds of wisdom in James 3:13, & 17. So how do we begin to seek wisdom? Job says in Job 28:28 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom”. Fear of the Lord is wisdom. To shun evil is understanding. No one shunned evil as he did in his time. It is written of him in Job-1:1 “There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil”. So it’s not only about what you seek but also about what you shun. Proverbs 8:13. How do you shun evil? How can one sense evil garbed in the goodies of life? There is certainly only ‘ONE WAY’ by which you can overcome this sin problem. Proverbs: 8:13 reveals. “To fear the Lord is to hate evil”. Therefore, if you are in a state of trouble or confusion, in a situation from where you want to wriggle free then here is the answer. ‘Seek His Kingdom first and you will end up with heavenly wisdom to tackle the issues surrounding you’. As you involve yourself more and more in ‘Kingdom’ related objectives that God has prepared for you, that you find you are suited to, you automatically open the doors of heavenly wisdom to knock off the troubles plaguing you, and you begin to exercise new freedom. Proverbs: 14:15 says “The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps”.
