Make your business, your pulpit says Fr Ebido - ITREALMS

Lenten Sermon@ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!
Wednesday, Fifth Week of Lent B (March 24, 2021) 

Your Daily BlessingMay God grant you the grace of radical faith and unconditional love. Amen!

Read Dan 3:14-95; John8:31-32; pray Psalm 18[17].

NARRATION: I was at a young Christian executive’s office yesterday on our way back from Songhai farms in Port Norvo, Benin Republic. 


Our Dominican brother Fr Nzamujo, founder of Songhai project, led us to see this young executive who has been his diligent supplier of electrical appliances for many years. What struck me first was how this man preaches the Gospel with everything around him: His business name is “Divine Answers Ltd”; his office complex bears a bold statement: “The greatest mistake in life is to die without Christ.” Then, he boldly advertises his vision and mission statement for all to see, which in itself is a Gospel.

I have never seen anything like that before among business people. 

To my surprise, when I entered his office and saw his name, it was someone I have long been told about two years earlier as a great man of faith, and I have called him on phone in 2019 without knowing him in person. 

His business premises is his pulpit. Despite that he is surrounded by competitors who boast of being “occult men” he is very successful in what he does because his brand is trustworthiness.
 
God is looking for men and women who are truly ready to die for their faith in him; men/women of radical faith like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in today’s first reading.

They said, “even if our God will not save us from your hands, we will still not bow down to that image…” Their faith in God was absolute and unconditional. 

When your faith in God transcends his answers to prayers, healing of sickness, dispenser of financial breakthroughs, salvation from enemies, but because he is God, then you have arrived at radical faith. There is nothing God cannot do with a person like that. He alone understands what it means to be set free by the truth – the Son of God (see today’s Gospel). It is time our Christian enterpreneurs realize that your business is your pulpit.
 
PRAYER: Loving Father, you delivered your servants who showed complete faith in you, and honored you among pagans. Have mercy on me for failing to honor you even among Christians! Deepen my faith! Amen.

❤️ Love you all
