I was interested today to hear Tak Bhana speak about all Christians being ministers in ministry – at whatever we find to do – at work, at home – everyday.
Daily we preach (even if we don’t say anything) – with our:
1. Honesty –
No stealing, arrive on time, take only set tea/lunch breaks, no personal business in work time.
2. Attitude to Authority –
Model our character on God, not the world. Respect and honour those over us. (They’re put there by God). You are to glorify God.
3. Showing initiative –
Consider the Ant. Complete the tasks set. Keep deadlines. Go beyond what is asked for.
4. Showing Christian character –
Treat people well – with kindness, gentleness. Encourage. Be Christ-like.
No swearing. No gossiping. Keep confidences.
Be visibly different.
5. “Defending” Christ –
Be ready to share about Jesus – for the hope that is within you.
