Power for our Lives

Building cross effect

This weekend we reflect on and celebrate what I believe to be the most important event in human history.  The price was paid on our behalf to allow us the opportunity to spend eternity in heaven.  Within its events, we have been given access to tremendous power for living out our lives with great joy, peace, purpose, and impact.  This event is the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15: 3-4)

In the most brutal of fashion, our Lord was mocked, beaten, and ultimately experienced a painful death.  Fortunately for all of us who believe, His death was only a temporary setback.  As we consider this, let us also remember that prior to coming down to earth, He was enjoying a peaceful life in Heaven.  He left this beautiful place, coming to earth with a Secret Ambition.  One that would result in giving His life away.  By giving it away, He paid the ultimate price and provided the way for us to be made alive and join Him someday in Heaven.

The Ultimate Price

His brutal death was only temporary as on the third day, He arose from death and with his new body, left the grave behind, fulfilling His earthly mission.  His death on the Cross paid the ultimate price for all the times we have gone our own way.  His resurrection gave us the opportunity for a new, more powerful, enjoyable, and peaceful life.  One that will also give us the ultimate prize, eternal life in Heaven with our Lord.  Our faith and hope lie in Jesus Christ alone, and not just for things in this life.  If there was nothing beyond what we see today, we are much to be pitied. (1 Corinthians 15:19)

Experience Eternity

As we go through this weekend, let us reflect on these truths we believe and their powerful impact on our lives, both now and forever.  If you have not yet experienced the peace, power, and joy that comes through faith in Jesus Christ, what He did on the Cross, and through His resurrection on the third day, I pray you would find a bible believing church, attend this Sunday, and ask someone to help you put your faith in Jesus Christ.  You will be eternally grateful you did. (John 3:16)

Faith, Timing and Provision

When we search for direction in a business decision, it will likely involve aspects of faith, timing and provision.  A few examples may be seeking direction on when to start a new product or service, pull out of a territory, add to your team and hire, let go of a staff member not fulfilling the duties of their job, and many others. 

God will often use the things not so obvious and last-minute to provide both direction and exactly what we need at each step of the way.  This requires faith and confidence that God is ultimately your boss, leader and financial provider.  As you carry out and are driven by His purposes within your organization, He will provide the resources you need at exactly the right time.

Godly Leaders Trust and Obey, Daily

As leaders, we will experience uncertainties and likely some anxious moments. These ups and downs can go along with business cycles, world and economic events.  In these times, stay focused on following God and pursuing first His kingdom. This aligns us with His purposes and honors Him as stewards. When we do, He promises to provide for what we need.  (Matthew 6: 8-11)   As business owners and leaders, this will require faith. In return, it will lead us to a deeper Trust in God, and will result in obeying Him daily.  These biblical principles are illustrated in the Christmas story of Jesus birth as captured in Matthew 1: 18-25.

A Leader’s View of Money- Eternal Economics Indicator

When you think about your business, it likely revolves around and is driven by one central component:  Money.  Ultimately this is what the world we live in measures as success.  Money is what people work for, returns your business investment, what your vendors seek, and what your customers use to access your goods and services.  There is no way around this, nor should we over-spiritualize it.  However, what you are driving towards and continually reflecting on will determine your eternal impact.  What you are making your life and business ultimately about, and what you are doing with this money may be the most important factor.  This is what I will call the Eternal Economics Indicator.
