Christ Alive! | Christian Testimonies, Stories and Reflections

The kingdom of God is breaking out right in our midst, in our workplaces. You won’t hear about it on the evening network news. You won’t read about it in your local newspaper. But you will hear about it from members of Christians in Commerce. Here are just a few of the stories from the front lines of the workplace.

Christians in Commerce members share their workplace stories, reflections and testimonies of being Christ in the Workplace. Select a category to display abstracts from our ChristAlive Archives.

What is my immediate response when I am called to serve Christ through serving others? What holds me back?
A good starting point for pouring out the Holy Spirit on others is to set aside our own personal interest and take an interest in the welfare of others. Who is the Lord sending into your life today?
Does our anxiety when working for Jesus block what he has sent us to do? Are we so preoccupied that we miss what it is he really has in mind for us?
When Jacob was on his way back to the land of his father he heard that Esau had sent out an army of four hundred, and he was afraid. So he sent various herds of animals, his wives and his children out before him. Jacob himself lingered behind where he wrestled all night with an angel. In the morning the angel blessed him and gave him the name Israel.
I once wondered how these fishermen could just leave their lifetime occupations to follow Jesus. My philosophy was to say yes only if I was sure I could do it. I learned more about how this might have happened once my faith came alive after being baptized in the Holy Spirit.
Have you ever been in work situations where you felt like the mountains in front of you looked so high that you would never overcome them? Have you ever had trouble getting started with a project that you just kept putting off? Have you ever missed deadlines in your work that had serious consequences?
Through the centuries, we have had brothers and sisters faithfully go before us and live out their faith with commitment and courage. They did it in different times, in different cultures, in different positions and different circumstances. Those were their times. These are our times to be faithful and faith-filled.
Are we aware of the significance of our relationships, service, and words to others and theirs to us - acceptance or rejection of Jesus and the one who sent him?
Due to my job situation, I take frequent flights. Recently, I experienced a full day of encounters that not only blessed me, but enabled me to be a blessing to someone else.
We once had a tree we had to cut down, and we discovered that the root system was as large as the tree. It took three men, three days and one machine to finally get rid of those roots. That is how Christ wants me to be rooted in him so that I can stand in the face of adversity.
