When I first started studying the role of the Marketplace Christian, I believed the main role of this leader was to bring in provision for the endtime harvest. I still believe that is a major role; I just don’t think it is the major role. It is obvious that we need the Christian business leader to bring in provision; most churches and ministries lack the resources they need to fulfill their God given call. So, we need for you to succeed financially and to be faithful in your giving.
Leaders come in all shapes and sizes, and attain their position in any number of ways. Some are selected by popular choice; some gain their position through deceit and treachery. Some work hard at becoming a leader, while for others it is very easy and natural. Some gain leadership through wealth; others gain wealth through leadership.
"Thus Israel saw the great work which the Lord had done in Egypt; so the people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord and His servant Moses.” Exodus 14:31.
What a tremendous statement: “the people believed the Lord and His servant Moses.”
Not only does God want to use your business for Kingdom advancement, He really does want to bless you, and prosper you in your business venture. We can see that clearly in the life of Jesus. Whenever He came in contact with a business venture, He focused on blessing the business.
