Four Types of Christians

Ever thought about what kind of a Christian you are at work? Ed Silvoso has provided a thoughtful look at four types of Christians in the workplace in his book Anointed for Business. He cites the follow four categories:

1. The Christian who is simply trying to survive. Our first category is best described as a person who has no purpose or zeal for their work or life. They have not seen the power or presence of God in their work life. Solomon describes this person: Therefore I went about to cause my heart to despair of all the labour which I took under the sun. For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil. For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun? For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity. (Eccl 2:20-23). This person most likely has a segmented life. Their faith life is segmented from their work life. They lack purpose and meaning and have little direction. They go to work to collect a paycheck and most likely their work is reduced to collecting a paycheck at the end of the week. They have never heard the voice of God in their life and would never consider praying during or for a workplace-related issue. Perhaps they attend church, or maybe not. If they go to church, they see church as the only place to do something for God. In

the final analysis, this person is a defeated Christian simply trying to survive. These are the ones who are stressed about things and have not gotten it that we are to be guided by biblical principles every day of our lives. 2. The Christian who is living by Christian principles. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law (Gal 5:18). The second type of Christian in the workplace is the one who is living by Christian principles. We are a society that loves programs and systems to do things. We find programs and books that claim 7 steps to lose weight or 10 Ways to a Better Marriage as guaranteed formulas to achieve our goals. For some, this type of programmed teaching is helpful. It gives them a track to run on. Christian authors use acrostics to help their audiences grasp key concepts. Let’s face it, if the whole world lived on Christian principles, we would definitely have a better world. These Christians tend to be ethical people. They want to do the right thing. Ethics are important for laying foundations, but they will never lead us to experience the power of God. If we fail the ethics test, we will be disqualified from powerful encounters with God and fail to be a witness to the world. These are often the best church workers because they like to follow clearly defined tasks. However, in order to experience the freedom and power of God in the Holy Spirit, they must move beyond the “milk” of programmed Christianity to an intimate relationship with Jesus


Christ. If you are this second type of Christian, this step of faith is where you will experience the power of God. 3. The Christian who is living by the power of the Holy Spirit. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, “Abba, Father” (Rom 8:14-15). The key characteristic of the third type of Christian is best exemplified as one who has a heart toward God that hears the voice of God in every aspect of their life. They understand that their life in Christ is a result of the love of God born in their hearts. They understand the grace of God and relate to God in loving obedience. These Christians know the importance of developing a heart toward God through prayer, study of the Word of God, and obedience. They realize these are the three core ingredients to experiencing the power of God in their lives. One such man made an impact in my life. While stationed at Homestead AFB, I was invited to attend a revival at a local church. E-9 Dennis Mills put on his civilian clothes, took three days off and personally invited all 270 men and women in our squadron to the revival. Only two went went and one made a decision for Christ. This year I will celebrate 30 years of ministry. It began with God using one man who cared about the people he worked with. 4. Christian who is transforming their workplace for Christ. The fourth type of Christian is one who is transforming the workplace for Christ. This Christianity is a byproduct or fruit of the third type. The workplace can only be transformed when one is moving in the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus spoke of bringing the Kingdom of God to earth. Certainly,

salvation is included in the Kingdom of God, but it includes much more. Jesus mentioned the Kingdom of God seventy times in the New Testament. «After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, in earth, as it is in heaven.» (Matt 6:9-10). When we talk of transformation, we are talking about bringing the Kingdom of God upon the workplace and society. The early disciples understood this. Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him. (Acts 17:17). This is the individual that sees his workplace as a ministry and calling on his life. They are able to be used of God to move mountains in the marketplace. Whether our station in life is to be a business leader or employee, each of us needs to have a ministry plan not only on Sunday, but also on Monday.
