Heart To Heart

Priesthood in the marketplace.

Jeremiah 29:7 “Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” It is easy to look at a system and complain about its fallen state rather than seek God’s thoughts about your purpose in bringing about transformation.

The Jews who were in Babylonian exile were probably blaming their forefathers, complaining about their plight, and sighing at the ungodly state of Babylon. God’s Word that came through Jeremiah was for them to pray for Babylon instead of complaining because complaining would mean status quo but prayer would rein in His prosperity and in turn create a trickle down effect to even the lowest levels of that society, namely the exiles, the Jews.

Each believer in God’s Kingdom has a powerful role to play in expanding it. As a priest according to 1 Peter 2:9, we represent our workplace, its business dealings, the owners of the business, etc. to God. Each day as we go to work, our responsibility as priests is to bless our workplace, its operations, business partners and every facet thereof, alike.

We need to catch God’s Word to bring about restoration of order and transformation in one way or another in our workplaces because light is meant to pierce darkness. Let’s start with our workplaces; let’s bring workplace transformation that leads to people coming to Christ at work.
