I am a spiritual being. After this body is dead, my spirit will soar. I refuse to let what will rot, rule what is eternal. I choose self-control. I will be drunk only with joy. I will be impassioned only by my faith. I will be influenced only by God.

WORKING FOR DOUGH

"Do you not know that a little yeast has its effect all through the dough?" –1 Corinthians 5:6

 

On this Labor Day, it's appropriate to ask the question: How can I lead people to Christ on a secular job? Most jobs offer only limited opportunities to witness for Jesus. Furthermore, the hearts of many of
our fellow employees are hard. Consequently, it seems unlikely that
they will give their lives to Christ.

Jesus used the analogy of leaven or yeast to illustrate how we can impact the atmosphere of our secular job (Mt 13:33). "A little yeast has its effect all through the
dough" (1 Cor 5:6). The hearts of some of our fellow employees are so
hard because of "old yeast." However, the new yeast can have an even
greater effect on these same people.

The effect of yeast is slow and gradual, so we will have to have faith to believe the yeast of our lives in Christ is really working. However, if we persevere in being
ourselves, that is, new creations, children of God, temples of the Holy
Spirit, witnesses for Jesus, we will see the people on our job change
from "corruption and wickedness" to "sincerity and truth" (1 Cor 5:8).
Yeast doesn't have to be big or fast to work. It just has to be itself.
Be yeast, a follower of Christ in the fullest sense of the word.

 

PRAYER: Father, send the Spirit to work in and through me.
PROMISE: "His hand was perfectly restored." –Lk 6:10
PRAISE: Stephen thought his Christian values were being ignored at work, but then he began to get prayer requests from co-workers.
