A word in due season

While visiting a friend in a hospital in a nearby town, I met a man in the waiting room and soon learned that he was a Christian – a deacon – in a nearby church. Once he learned that I was a Workplace Chaplain, he started opening up.

A busy professional, he lamented that he had become immersed in secular things and that his spiritual life had been relegated to church services. He confessed, almost ashamedly, that his faithful church attendance wasn’t all that fulfilling.

I hear this all the time from people. Even ministers. After listening to him vent for a few minutes, I reminded him of several things that I felt sure would benefit many Christians who may find themselves in the same situation. Here they are….

1. The Hebrew word for “work” comes from the same root as their word for “Worship” (avodah). In other words, our work CAN be worship – it’s an attitude of the heart.
2. The “uniform “ we wear at work is really just the camouflage we wear as we go to battle to advance the Kingdom each day. Are YOU getting your uniform dirty? Hope so!
3. Your “REAL” boss is Jesus Christ.
4. Use the talents, skills and education you possess to the best of your ability, however, like the disciples, as they fished after their Lord was crucified, sometimes we need to toss our net over the OTHER side of the boat. Huh? Same expert fisher man, same tools (a boat and a net), but they listened to Jesus and obeyed Him, bringing greater success than they’d ever had.
5. Pray for Divine appointments DAILY. Pray that you will meet at least one “Person of Peace” (according to Luke 10:6), that is, one who will embrace your message, one with whom you can team up, one ready to move forward with God.
6. YOU are The Church, the Ekklesia, the “called out ones.” Everywhere you go, 24/7, 365, every minute of every day…you are never NOT The Church. It isn’t somewhere you GO, it’s who you ARE! So, be that at work, too.

If this message was a blessing to you, pass it on! I GUARANTEE you, someone who receives it REALLY needed it.

Every blessing,
Michael Tummillo
Workplace Chaplain

yes, the church is the people not the building. We should be serving the Lord every minute of our lives.
