We as believers still have to go to a market place and work every single day because not everyone is called to be a pastor or evangelist. That is a calling, but it is not entirely correct if we say we do not need to be in a full time ministry. If we follow the Lord and if we serve Him with our lives, then every single second of our lives need to be a witness for the Lord and that everyone else who sees what we do, the way we speak and behave will know and recognize Christ that dwell in us. That is a full time ministry for us.
God loves obedience people and who are doing His commandments. We as believers are adopted into the kingdom of heaven and have the right to receive the blessings that God promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In Genesis 12:2-3 “….you shall be a blessing…., and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed”. That is the promise of God that we shall become a blessing to all families of the earth.
Wherever we work or we go, we should become a blessing for that work place and the people around us. That place should be prosperous through us. It takes more than just showing up there and expects God to bless that place because of us. We should pray for that place, for our boss, our coworkers. We need to stand up if we see things that are wrong and lead by example. We spread the gospels through our actions and our words that we speak daily. We have to be different and show the characters of God through us. We should never compromise because of fear of losing our job. As long as we believe in God and do all that He asks us to do and doing it for Him. He would take care of us.
God never goes back on His promises. People will see how God bless them through us. They will in turn believe in God. That’s our best ministry, through our action that glorifies Him. If the places where we go instead are not prospering, a lot of conflicts, people call us hypocrites. Then we need to look at ourselves and be true to ourselves. Do not just be believers in church or around our friends, but be believers for 24/7; that God truly has changed us from the inside out.
Let’s be a blessing for others as that is the promise of God that through us all families of the earth shall be blessed. It is a decision that we have to make every single time as a response to God’s blessing in our lives, then let us become a blessing for others.
Lord Jesus, I believe that wherever I go, in my family, my work place that I shall be a blessing. I believe in Your promises. I pray for the place that I work, for the people around me that their eyes may be opened and they can see Jesus through my life. That my life always pleases You and glorify Your name. that they may repent and believe in You. In the Name of Jesus ii pray.
