no empire building

We are free to affirm others in the workplace because we are secure in our affirmation from Christ.
  • We are free to serve others in our workplace because our justification is wrapped up in the servant Christ.
  • We don’t hang on every word or declaration from our employers; our declaration in Christ from the Triune God of the universe sustains us.
  • We can live under the umbrella of the declaration of Christ, when the torrential rain of condemnation comes.
  • We no longer swing from despair (not good enough) to pride (I am good enough) in our work, but fix our eyes on Christ, because of his goodness and finished work.
Now our jobs are no longer empires we are building, but tools to live for Christ’s kingdom.
