Let God use your business
“Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus…taught the crowds.” Lk 5:3 NLT
Do you want God to bless your business? Invite Him into it! Allow Him to use your business to do His business. Peter did that. He had a fishing boat, and one day he invited Jesus on board so He could use it to preach to the crowd on the shore. And it paid off! Afterward Jesus worked a miracle that caused Peter’s boat to be so full of fish it almost sank. With Jesus on board, you’ll prosper. “Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God” (Rev 1:5-6). In Bible times priests worked in the church while the kings went out and did battle. And when they won, they brought back the spoils to finance the work of God. So if you’re in the business end of things, you’re a “king,” and because you’re God’s redeemed child, He will teach you how to prosper (See Isa 48:17 NKJV). But there’s one condition; when He does, you must be willing to help finance His plan for reaching the world with the gospel (See Mt 24:14). You should consider that an honor and an opportunity, because when you go into business with God, the sky is the limit! Henry Giles, a nineteenth-century preacher, said, “There is no task so low that we may not elevate it; so dull that we may not enliven it if we understand that what we are doing is service to our Lord Jesus Christ.” So today use your business to do God’s business, and He will bless your business.
