Supernatural Business Life

Question to ponder: as a Christian businessperson or entrepreneur, do you believe that the things you say you believe are really real?

It’s an important question that deserves your attention. Dr. Bill Bright said, “The Christian life, according to the claims and promises of God’s Holy, inspired word, is meant to be an exciting adventure, an abundant, fruitful life, characterized by the supernatural.”

Does that make you a little uneasy? Do you see this proven out in your own life and in your own business?

One of the most disturbing things about the life of the modern Christian is the way it seems to differ so little from the lives of people who are not believing Christians. Divorce rates are the same, family problem rates are the same, financial failure are the same for the majority of Christians as it is for unbelievers.

It’s not true in all cases.

For those who really believe God’s Word, and receive the gifts of grace that are available to all of us through Jesus Christ, we can experience changed lives and success in every way.

This includes — perhaps especially — our business lives. A believing Christian who is truly receiving the grace of Jesus Christ, and following Him, will experience good success. The choice deals will come your way, the right contacts will come into your life, you’ll be preferred over other vendors for the prime project.

Are you trusting God’s wisdom for your business decisions? Are you regularly going to Him with questions about strategy and tactics in your business? Are you asking Him for His favor so that you can be a blessing to others when you are blessed?

The world is watching. They want to see Christians with changed lives. They want to see believers who have been transformed by the power of God. The reason they want to see these things is because… they hope to be able to get that kind of life for themselves.

This is how we “make disciples of all nations.”

My admonition to you: start believing, start receiving, and start fulfilling God’s commission on your life.

The world is counting on us!

  1. I appreciate your weighing in on this. You make good points.

    These are the exact reasons why I didn’t just stop with relating the apparent facts – and went on to point out that in a subgroup of those we call Christians, there is something very different going on.

    We don’t do the world any good by covering over facts and letting them think a powerless Christianity is real Christianity.

  2. Blase and Ray,

    Great post and reply, guys. Os Hillman cites that same 1999 survey that reveals out of ALL professing born-again Christians, only 17% have a Biblical world-view!!

    Blase, I agree we need to make these clarifications so as to give hope to the world with God’s power working in us and through us. Ray, you’re right; our best witness in the marketplace (where 80% of our interactions take place) is a powerful, impactful business that exemplifies Christ’s servant attitude and excellence!

    I recommend you both subscribe to Os Hillman’s TGIF ezine at http://www.MarketplaceLeaders.org- he has many insights on how to have a powerful, impactful business that is Christ-centered and powerful. I HIGHLY recommend it to you guys!
