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.

Get Out of the Boat

Bill Dalgetty

Matthew 14: 28-30

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

God's Business

Ken Balestrieri

Colossians 1:27 

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. 

In the nearly twenty years I have spent as a self-storage operator, I have witnessed situations both strange and sad. Many people have a need for storage space after a divorce, a death in the family, or a failing business, all of which are opportunities to introduce them to Christ. 

A Stop to the Gossip

Frank Adamo

Proverbs 11:12-13

Whoever derides their neighbor has no sense, but the one who has understanding holds their tongue. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret. 

I have a coworker that people like to talk about. When it comes to his job, he is detailed and thorough to the point of irritating his colleagues. He gets the job done, but often takes a long time to finish a task.

The Slight Pause

Brad Prose

Isaiah 43:19

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

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?
