My opening message of this program I give you some important evidence that there really is an attempt by powerful people to get you and I to see our faith as irrelevant. We hear and see it everyday ( I use a recent example in the message) and I fear we are becoming used to it. But there is a way that as Christians we can push back…it is called doing great work with great faith. This means you develop the focus and discipline to perform your work with excellence, and you develop a strong relationship with God and invite Him everyday into your work. THESE TWO will make you influential, as your work will be respected and you will possess the wisdom that comes from walking daily with God. You can do it….and God is calling you to it.
Our Guest for both segments this week is Kevin Mitchell who is the President and COO of OPIN Systems, a software and IT business solutions company. .
Kevin introduces you to a way of impacting the marketplace “as you go”, with a process from Harvest Evangelism called, Prayer Evangelism. He gives you a very specific process to use, and hard core examples that are very convincing.
The text for this is when Jesus sends out the 70. Luke 10.
5 “When you enter a house, (or business) first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. 7 Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you. 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say, 11 ‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’ 12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town
