I’m a life transformation coach and business coach… and a rabid follower of Jesus Christ.
And I’m very concerned about the deception of all the “Follow Your Passion” stuff I hear out there today. I get it… we all want to do something with our lives that is fulfilling and meaningful. CHECK.
But for a follower of Christ we have to think a bit more critically about those kinds of statements to ensure that they align with the purpose and will of our Savior. If Jesus is your Lord, you can’t just “follow YOUR passion.” It’s not YOUR passion that matters.
Jesus is Lord for a reason. He’s knows how He wants to use your life. He created you for that specific purpose (Ephesians 2:10). That may mean that the passions you “naturally” have are exactly in line with what He wants you to be doing. But we have to take the time to examine it, to be sure.
And to say “Follow Your Passion” to a person who doesn’t know Christ at all… that’s like saying “Do whatever you want,” when the reality is that self-centered living is what keeps most of us away from Christ in the first place. We’re unwilling to give our life over, to make Him Lord of the life we live. But that’s EXACTLY what has to happen in order for life to be truly fulfilled.
What would “Spirit-led Business” even look like? Do you have any idea?
* Does it mean you should ignore basic business principles?
* Does it mean that your MBA is irrelevant?
* Does it mean that you need some mystical connection with God to make your business work?
* Does it mean that success is guaranteed if you learn it?
These are all valid questions, and all questions I intend to address (and a ton more) in the videos to follow. For Christ-following business people, Spirit-led business is what God intends. He wants us following His lead as we organize, staff, lead, and build the businesses He’s given to us.
Can you think of a a better person to follow? Is there anyone else who knows business like the God of the universe?
I don’t think so… and I’m going to unpack my thoughts on this powerfully important subject in these videos… I hope you stick around to discover what “Spirit-led Business” can look like.
Did you know that Christians who operate or work in a business have a “secret weapon” that people who are not followers of Christ do not have?
It’s true. The scriptures clearly state it to be true. And it’s not only useful in the business realm, it’s also a powerful “secret weapon” for all of life. You can access this “secret weapon” any time you want, and can be confident that it is yours to use with God’s approval.
What is this secret weapon? You’ll have to listen to find out.
