Every Business Is Godu2019s Business. The notion that labor for profit and worship of God are now and always have been worlds apart is patently false. The Early Church founders were mostly community leaders and highly successful business people. The writing of the Gospels was entrusted to Luke a medical doctor; Matthew a retired tax collector; Mark the manager of a family trust; and John a food supplier. Lydia was u0022a dealer in purple cloth.u0022 Dorcas was a clothes designer.
Today more than ever the heart of our cities is the marketplace. Yet the perceived u0022wallu0022 between commercial pursuit and service to God continues to knock down that wall—and build the foundation for an unparalleled marketplace revival. Only then can we extend Godu2019s kingdom to every corner of our world.
