“… whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” (John 14:12-14, NIV)

As Christians, we are expected to do great works. We shouldn’t confine ourselves to a place where we only watch ministry happen.

We have been ordained, not in the church, but in the marketplace, to “expose” Christ Jesus to the world.

Satan focuses much of his time at our places of employment. He likes to tell us that our jobs are meaningless or that our purpose for working is solely to make a living. He will repeatedly tell you that because your focus is on the marketplace, you have no right to be in ministry.

The day you discover that your job is an important mission field, God’s kingdom will begin to replace Satan’s in the workplace. Being in business for the glory of God adds the most inspiring purpose to your occupation.

“We should never let our occupations block our destiny; instead, our destiny should shape our business by turning it into our ministry.” (Ed Silvoso, “Anointed for Business“)

God’s purpose for our lives is undeniable. We have the full power of heaven at our disposal (see John 14:14). The key is to get started. That first step is the most difficult. Your current occupation does not matter. Jesus began as a carpenter, David as a shepherd, and Peter as a fisherman. Each of them fulfilled their destiny and affected millions of lives.

If you are a Christian in the workplace, unsure of your role, listen to the Holy Spirit. Let Him touch your soul and bring to light those areas darkened by shame and confusion. Never let negative circumstances determine your destiny. Instead, change your destiny by embracing your divine purpose. There is a purpose and a destiny right where you are – right now!

Take that first step today. The God of ministry is also the God of the workplace!

    It can start with as small an act as making a fellow worker a cup of coffee for no reason at all.

    Do not hide your light…


  5. Well said. Our ministry should never be redefined because of our career. Our jobs should just be an extension of our hearts for God.
