Transform: How To Run A Spirit-led Business, part 1

(The following was originally published at CareyGreen.com)I believe with my all my heart is that all of the scriptures apply to all of life.For instance, passages in the New Testament that we would typically just apply to life in general can be applied specifically to all areas of life. This includes marriage, family, and business.For example, take Galatians 5:16, But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. The flesh, in Paul’s language, refers … [Read more...]

Transform: Made for Greatness.. A Modern Day Myth

There is a phrase that we hear a lot in our day: “You were made for greatness.” You see, I don’t think that’s a true statement, or at least not in the sense that it’s usually meant. Each of was made, according to God’s word, with specific good works in mind that God has created us in advance to do. That’s Ephesians 2:10. The Bible even says that we are His masterpiece - His workmanship - to do his good works. It sounds like the same thing doesn’t it?But it’s not what people mean. People are … [Read more...]

WWUTT: Does Philippians 4:13 say that I Can Do ALL Things?

The Apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Philippian church while under house arrest in Rome. He had been detained for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Philippians had heart about Paul’s imprisonment and also witnessed rival teachers making things harder on Paul. It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry… [they] preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains.  (Philippians 1:15, 17) It wasn’t pop … [Read more...]

Transform: Business Peacemakers

(The following was originally published at CareyGreen.com) Jesus said in Matthew 5:9, "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called Sons of God" Have you ever noticed that Christianity is almost always directly opposite of what is "normal" in the world? It seems even more that way when it comes to doing business in a Christian way. Business can be a "dog eat dog" world where you feel like you have to step on other people to get ahead (or to the top). But Jesus says, "NO WAY!" to that … [Read more...]

Transform: Pure in Heart in Business

(The following was originally published at CareyGreen.com)In Matthew 5:8, Jesus tells us: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” What does it mean to be "pure in heart" and how does it relate to doing business as a Christian? I think that what Jesus is getting at here is a very core principle – not just for business people, but for life. You see, the Bible also tells us that our hearts are deceitful and desperately wicked above all things (Jeremiah 17:9). So, a pure heart … [Read more...]
