Topic: Worship (corporate) (10/04/07)

TITLE: Corperate Restructuring!
By David Campbell


As I contemplate worship on a corporate scale. I know both definitions of both these words. The meaning of the first word meaning to honor or praise and the second word meaning to be apart of a large body to conduct business. But knowing corporate structuring. We have to understand its purpose. It is one business with multi structures striving to build a product with consumer demand with hopes of a large profit margin.

But I have to wonder if the body of Christ has sold out to the franchise structure of business. Are we truly striving together as a whole body for one sole purpose to bring the lost to the knowledge of the love of Jesus Christ? Our have we broken away striving only to seek our own endeavors with hope of a greater gain or larger profit margin.

As employees of a large corporation we seldom get to see the finished product. Only making a small piece of the larger product. But we have to understand that with out all the other pieces it becomes a useless piece of product. Never being able to due its function of the finished product. Unless we hold fast in our tasks giving to us by the Head of the corporate office, knowing that they know exactly what they are doing. (The Father, Son and Holy Spirit) Knowing how to assemble all the products to become the finished product and getting it to its final destination. (Heaven)

So as employees of this corporate structure are we truly sticking to the companyís handbook? (The Bible) This is given to us by the corporate Heads (The Father, Son and Holy Spirit) to better understand our jobs and place in the body of the corporation. Or have we hacked at it taking out the parts we donít like. Not truly knowing how important every word is to the completion of the finished product.

In a corporate sense lets take a look at or competitor. (Satan) Being a part of the corporation finding in himself to be better than those set above him. To strive to build his own corporation to seek out his own selfish motives thinking himself to be smarter than the Head of the corporation. And we as employees of the corporation knowing he took part of the company handbook before one of the Heads hoping for a merger. (The tempting of Jesus Christ) That He withstood him knowing how important the whole manual is to complete the finished product. So Knowing that our competitor is the father of lies we must come to the knowledge that partial truth of this company handbook is also a lie.

I truly think the corporation is in need of restructuring. We again must come together setting all of our differences aside in order to strive towards the finished product. But this can only happen if we as employees first seek to change our own work habits and understanding our job and place in the corporation. Then and only then offering help to those around us. Setting our hopes on the unity of the corporation to compete the tasks given to use by those who have been place as our department heads. Knowing that if they the department heads are not doing their jobs. That the Company Handbook gives detailed instructions on the chain of command and process of how we are to go about bringing this to light.

So ask yourselves today. Are you apart of the corporation our have you broken away pursuing your own franchise. And if you donít know, refer to your Handbook. Then finding that you are. With love reach out to the one working next to you showing them that there are great benefits to the reference of the Company Handbook. Then when your department is in order. Send memos to the other departments telling them to refer back to the Company Handbook.

We know that there is a great demand for the product we are selling. But are we truly doing our jobs. There is one sure way to know. Look up at the board. (Church attendance board) Do the numbers match that of the projected numbers of the Corporate Heads?

You have some very valid points in your writing. With some more thought, editing and revising I think it could really speak to hearts..
