Reclaiming the World for Jesus

Evidently as we observe over the years that the Church has lost its influence in the world.

It is a far cry from how the early Church started as depicted in the book of Acts. Since then, the Church has slowly retreated from our original place of influence.

But now, it seems that God is moving His Church to fill that void to reclaim our God-given authority in being the head and not the tail in this world with the power of the Holy Spirit.

We need to engage our culture that ultimately shapes and influences our values and lives towards the Truth, the Way and the Life.

Watch the 5min video clip from below:

Personally, I think that engaging our marketplace especially in the arena of business or economics makes perfect (and biblical) sense.

Our global marketplace is the missions field and our jobs are the means to engage with people and our culture with the ultimate goal of making the gospel available to the lost with our lives.

Business through the eyes of faith

Business is, after all, an institutionalisation of God’s intention for us to work and to serve each other. It is a legal structuring of work where we express dominion over creation and provide us the opportunities to plan, organise, lead, follow and develop skills in a number of areas- all mirroring godly qualities.

With the fact that some business people do not place moral principles very high in their decision criteria, Christians, therefore, have this particular opportunity to be salt and light to the business world, and thereby demonstrate what it means to be ethical and moral, but yet still experiencing success.

So the challenge is on us Christians who are in the marketplace of business to view our work as a ministry in impacting lives, and not merely as a job to earn a living.

The mandate is clear that we need to win the souls of every spiritual sphere, corner and territory in this world for Christ.

    1. Chapter 1- Business: Is there a Christian Perspective? of “Business through the eyes of faith” by Richard C. Chewning, John W. Eby and Shirley J. Roels

  2. Well, I don’t think so..
    City Harvest and New Creation are doing very well. Churches in Korea are doing very well too.
    From them, you can see God really bless them.
    For those who do nothing, they leave God no revenue to bless them.

  3. And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Matt13.57-58
