GODLY ENTREPRENEURSHIP

We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)

Glory! Isn’t that a great statement from our loving Father God. Our walk in Jesus here on the earth can be awesome if we so choose. God sent His Son here 2,000 years ago to make a way for us to be blessed in our daily walk in His name. The Lord talks quite a bit about works here on the earth. I love the following verses about works.

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:12-14

Our Lord and Savior came forth as the second Adam and purposed to listen to his loving Father in heaven on how to walk here on the earth. He was raised by an earthly father that taught him how to be a good carpenter. His first disciples were business guys that he walked with and taught. He spent a great deal of time in the Sea of Galilee area and spoke to people about how to catch a lot of fish. It is truly His desire today to be in us and to order our steps to bless us.

Jesus is truly our all and all. It is the desire of our God to make us successful in our walk here on the earth. He wants to be our joy and delight and strength. The Lord gave my wife and I four boys who loved to work with me as they grew up and today they are greatly blessed in all of there works. All four are very successful business men and they do greater works than I have done. This is the great plan of our loving God.

Over the years I have worked with a lot of folks in sharing how to walk in the Spirit with the Lord in doing all kinds of business. I am still doing this and will be more than glad to share with you personally. Praise God that Jesus loved to do this when He was here on the earth and He still wants to.

I have been in business for over 70 years. Over the years I have been involved in several different food operations which has been very fulfilling to me and my precious wife. I have literally seen her prepare a meal when more people showed up than she had planned for and the Lord increased the food to serve all that showed up. Jesus loved to feed literally thousands of people supernaturally. Praise God He wants us to do greater works in our walk with Him.

I am truly thankful that the Lord has worked in us to be willing and joyful in doing all kinds of business operations. Jesus talked many times about all sorts of business topics. He was a well- informed person and spoke quite a few times in parables about the following items: *construction (Matthew 7:24-27), *wine making (Luke 5:37-38) *farming (Mark 4:2-20) *treasure hunting (Matthew 20:13:44), *ranching (Matthew 18:12-14), *Management and labor (Matthew 20:1-16), *family-owned businesses (Matthew 21:28-31), *return on investments (Matthew 25:14-30), *crop yield (Mark 13:27-32). There are several other times He spoke in parables using business as the major topic.
