God and His anointing in the marketplace
We don’t want to shift our hearts from the pulpit or divert attention from the importance of the church—we want to broaden our perspective to include God and His anointing in the marketplace (where we spend a good share of our time and life). Where do you spend the most time—in church or in business (the marketplace)? Unless you’re in full-time ministry, retired, or unemployed—the answer is the marketplace.
Jesus is Lord over our lives and every realm of life, if we will allow Him to be. We need to give Him preeminence in every realm of life!
We desperately need to give God first place in the marketplace!
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
