Pastor's response...

ANSWER: "First we will all need a paradigm shift to understand this and do this effectively Most believers in the workplace see treat the workplace a. First and foremost a means to make money for themselves b. Secondly a means to maybe provide money for the work of the ministry c. Thirdly a place to possibly be a light for Christ and influence people into the kingdom This is a wrong order, it should be as follows a. Workplace is first and foremost a place to reveal Christ b. It is secondly to make money to fund the kingdom c. It is thirdly to meet your daily needs Here are a few suggestions,we need to 1. See ourselves (each of us) as the Ekklesia (we must realize that church/ Ekklesia is not the building, the services nor the organization it is us, the people of God!) 2. We need to see ourselves (each of us) as the temple of God through whom God wants to touch men 3. We need to assume the personal responsibility to prepare our vessel through discipleship ( kingdom discipline) and equipping to reach people effectively 4. We need to see 'ministry' not as a pulpit, but as touching the people with whom we have influence. Ministry is sharing the love of Christ with people and helping them to grow in him 5. When we go out each day, we need to see ourselves as an embassy of Gods kingdom, empowered by the Holy Ghost to spread the good news and good works of the kingdom wherever we go 6. We need to do the good works of spreading righteousness, peace and joy wherever we go. We all need to know enough to preach and teach the kingdom to anyone. 7. We need to seek every opportunity (prayerfully) to witness Christ to people we meet everyday 8. If we see our daily life as Christ's daily life through us. We would seek every opportunity to have him manifest himself through us to the people around us I hope this answers your question "
