The Lord's Favor

Nanci Panos

Luke 4: 18-19

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

Behind Closed Doors

Randy Raciti

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Torn

Luke Cahill

Jeremiah 1:7

“… You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.

Peace and Reconciliation

Steve Smith

Romans 12:18

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

As a realtor, I often run into conflicts between buyers and sellers in the course of purchasing a home. In one recent transaction, a buyer had completed her due diligence and closed on a home that had been substantially remodeled in an older section of the city.

Difficult People

Jennifer Ellis

2 Timothy 1:7-9

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.

Checking In

By: Jon Cassady

Matthew 5:16

… let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 

Our mission as Christians has always had an outward focus that includes being present and available to individuals, both at work and at home. I’ve experienced this firsthand while praying for others. When someone comes to mind, I check on them. A quick text or email saying, “Just checking in, how’s your day going?” often gets a response. 

What If?

Louis Grams

Isaiah 43: 19

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

What if every Christian realized they have truly been given the power of the Holy Spirit to transform their workplaces and their eyes were opened to the impact of those workplaces on the world?
