Some time with Jon Tyson Part III: The workplace

He spoke about the role of the workplace and how to help Christians live out their faith in the public sphere. A major part of this is their missional groups (see next post). But here is an overall approach:

  1. Have the right motives: you are serving the Lord Jesus in your work.
  2. Be committed to evangelism: that is why God has placed us where he has.
  3. Seek to serve in your workplace: look for the redemptive edge.
  4. Work with excellence: contribute positively to your field.
  5. Always keep a sacred margin: be active in caring for the poor with your skills.
