Philippians 2:12-13 says:
“So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.”
We tend to think of being in the mission field only when we are on a ministry trip to another country or a church project where we go serve on a weekend; but with this Scripture in mind, Paul reminds us that God’s work in and through us does not just happen when your Pastor is in the church van with you. God’s purposes are meant to be implemented wherever we are even if there is not a cross on the building. You were commissioned and commanded to share Christ’s love wherever you are, all day, every day. Your daily commute is a “daily mission trip” and it is vital that we view our workplace as our mission field – knowing that God is working in us and through us for His will and work to be done at our workplace “as it is in heaven.” We work for Him, He equips us with all we need and sends us into our workplace to live out our love for Him and our “neighbor” – our coworkers, employees, customers, clients, etc… God places people in our path all day long by His design, not by accident. This radio interview is a crash course on LOVE2020 and how we can be missionaries for the Kingdom by working out and walking in the love of Christ every day. Love is a verb, let’s get moving… at work!
