“Behold, I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:5
In this future statement, foretold in Revelation, Jesus speaks of the time after his second coming when it will come to pass: “Now my dwelling place is with men and women, and I will live with them.”
In the midst of the Pandemic, we look for this day.
But the Christmas Season is a reminder of the first coming of Jesus, when John (1:14) said, “The Word became flesh and lived for a while among us.” That first coming was the promise of the second coming. And for those of us who follow Jesus, we can live, even now, in the promise of his life with us. Like Paul we can say, “Behold all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17, KJV). And he admonishes us, “The night is nearly over; the day is almost here….So live as in the day.” (Romans 13:12-13)
How do we, as followers of Jesus in business, live in this reality? And how can we learn from what we are going through, and then bring hope to others? That was the subject of our last KIROS gathering on December 11. If you missed it, you can watch the recording here. It was an encouraging time.
As we approach the New Year, how do we, as followers of Jesus in business, prepare to live out this hope in the New Year? Sign up for the next event, January 8, 2021, here. David Gill (ethicist, business consultant, professor) is going to share some practical steps each of us can take to help us connect our business lives with our faith in Christ. David breaks it down into five specific ways biblical faith translates into workplace practice—and five basic habits that get us ready for effective, faithful workplace presence. He draws on his new book, Workplace Discipleship 101.
I look forward to seeing you there across the Zoom.
Have a joyous and meaningful Christmas Season, and Blessings for the New Year.
