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.

Do I see the face of Christ in everyone I encounter and treat them as such?
TAKE THE CHALLENGE: When I pray, do I truly believe that God hears me and that he will answer?
It was just one of those crazy days at the office; lots of work and little time to do it. Although I had told God earlier the same morning that I would be available, I was hoping his divine appointments would fall to someone else.
What prevents us from sharing Jesus with others? For me the biggest impediment is fear. One thing I have noticed about fear is that the more you do something, the less fearful of it you are. The difficult part is taking that first step.
God asked Solomon what he would choose if he could have anything in the world. Solomon asked for knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Because Solomon did not ask for wealth or material things, God granted him all three. Solomon went on to become a wealthy man.
TAKE THE CHALLENGE: Whom do you know who is suffering? How can you bring the hope of Christ to this person?
The experience caused me to wonder about the potential impact of this behavior. How does faith bashing help demonstrate the life and teachings of our Lord and Savior? We should always strive for our behavior and words to tell the story of Christ's love and leave the judging to him.
Often when we think about having an impact on this world, we think about grand schemes. There is nothing wrong with wanting to do great things for God if our motives are pure. However, not everyone is in a position to “go big”.
How am I at listening? When someone is speaking, do I treat them like they are the only person in the room, or do I allow my thoughts to wander?
About three years ago at a CIC conference I asked for prayer from one of the brothers. I was struggling with depression, a family relationship, discouragement from underemployment, and pain in my body. I had struggled for a number of years with these same issues.
