Created for Kingdom Impact By Martha Brangenberg
Here’s the Bottom Line: You Were Created for Kingdom Impact
We all want to make a Kingdom impact; we all want to transform the world for Christ. And here’s the thing: God has placed you right where you are to do exactly that! iWork4Him: Change the Way You Think About Your Faith at Work is today’s guide for the everyday believer. Filled with real-life stories, practical tools and resources, and biblical encouragement designed to help you engage in your Kingdom calling NOW!
In Chapter 1 of iWork4Him, Ted Hains recounts visiting the Marine Reserves with his friend Doug during his senior year of high school. It was the height of the Korean War, patriotism was running high, and both boys were interested in joining up. However, while visiting the Rock Island Arsenal, Ted decided he wasn’t ready for the military and postponed signing up. A few months later, the local Marine Reserves were called up, and before Ted had graduated, Doug died in combat.
Although he is now 88, Ted writes that he still thinks about Doug and wonders who he would have become and what would have happened if they’d talked about the gospel before he passed away.
We placed Ted’s story at the beginning of iWork4Him because it embodies our bottom line: none of us are guaranteed tomorrow. Each conversation you have with someone could be the last one and the most important one. So, ask yourself – when you encounter coworkers, neighbors, and friends do they encounter you or Jesus?
If you genuinely want to transform the world for Christ, remember that it happens one conversation at a time! Talk about the things of eternal value TODAY. As Ted wrote at the end of Chapter 1,
“Let those you work with know that Jesus changed your life. Let them know God loves them, and then see what God does next.”
Martha Brangenberg is the co-host of iWork4Him, the Top-Rated Faith and Work Podcast. Martha and her husband, Jim, share testimonies, interview authors and speakers, and tack topics to encourage you to look at your workplace as your mission field.
