More Christian entrepreneurs are need to come and rescue the situation, if we want to see positive changes, and restoration of all that had been lost.
Christian entrepreneurs have one quality above their counterparts, in addition to their certifications and experiences in running businesses, they also have build a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The have accepted him as their Lord and Savior, and are now living their lives to please Jesus, acknowledging him in all that they do, including running their businesses.
While some people may ask, what has religion or God to do with running a business?
Such people should know that God is interested in the prosperity of his people, and that he can supply the ideas and solutions that can bring unimaginable profits in the marketplace.
3 Major Reasons Why Christian Entrepreneurs Are Needed In The Marketplace
1. To bring godly business ethics onboard.
Profit is the major goal of most business owners, and they are ready to pursue this with all that it takes.
They can cheat, lie, cut corners, or commit murder if necessary in order to get what they want.
Greed is the name of the of the game.
The consequences are also there, making the business world a winner takes all kind of environment, devoid of peace and true prosperity.
Christian entrepreneurs don’t do business that way.
They have chosen to please God, so they do things with the fear of God, in all fairness and high integrity.
The end result is a win-win situation for all stakeholders.
2. To be at the helm of affairs in the business world.
When business thought leaders don’t have conscience nor the fear of God, they would not see anything wrong in promoting products and services that have negative impact upon the people, as long as such products can be good money spinners.
The presence of Christians among these leaders can help in checkmating such evils.
Also, they can control things through prayers and the help of God (Proverbs 21:1).
They can use prayers to determine the outcome of events and decision making, hence making themselves to really be in charge.
3. To Bring down God’s presence.
The presence of Christian entrepreneurs in the marketplace means the presence of God will be there too.
When Joseph got to the house of his master Portiphar in Egypt, he brought the presence of God with him.
The result was that he prospered in everything he did, and that made his master to be blessed in his business too, as a result of which he made Joseph the head of all the slaves.
In the real sense of it, the increase of God is needed in any human endeavor before good results can show forth, according to 1 Corinthians 3:6 KJV, “I have planted, Apollo’s watered, but God gave the increase.”
God can also reveal a future problem to them, so that they will know how to prepare for such.
He revealed 7 years of abundance and 7 years of famine to Pharaoh through Joseph in Genesis 41:28-49.
Through that, Egypt was able to prepare ahead for the famine, and they had super abundance of food.
While other nations were dying of hunger, they had so much that they could sell to others, which boosted their economy greatly.
