Our revolution is simple: Elevate Christ in business.

We do this by helping Christian business owners deepen their faith AND grow their business.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Hebrews 10:24

Paul is talking to the Jewish people.  He is confirming that Jesus as the ultimate sacrifice. He covers how Jesus was “offered for all time one sacrifice for sins.” (vs. 12)  He wants us to understand that Jesus Christ has paid for all of our sins and “has made perfect forever those being made holy.” (vs. 10)

In verse 19, Paul shares his thoughts on why we should be confident in Christ.  He tore the sin that separated us from God.  We now have a personal relationship with the Creator of the Universe.

He tells us to draw near to God with a sincere heart that is cleansed from guilt.  We are made holy by the faith and trust that we have in Jesus. (vs 20-22)

Then, Paul reminds us that we are to encourage one another.  The word here can be translated as spur, stimulate or provoke.  The picture is of an oyster who gets a sand in its shell.  To deal with the irritation it is provoked to make a beautiful pearl.

As Christians, we are to encourage, provoke and spur one another to good deeds.  We must be careful about how we spur each other on.  We must not fall into judgement and treat one another harshly.  That provokes anger instead of good deeds.

Paul tells us that we should not neglect meeting together.  When we are in a fellowship with one another and regularly meet in church and accountability, we get to know one another.  The better we know each other, the better we can encourage and spur one another on to good deeds.

I know from experience that Christian business owners may find it difficult to find a group of like-minded professionals.  It is crucial to your success as a Christian and as a business owner to have others who understand and pray for you.

We were never meant to walk alone on our journey of faith.  As business owners our journey comes with much responsibility.  We have our family, employees, customers and community.  These things can weigh down on us if we don’t have someone to encourage us and keep us fighting the good fight.

Let me encourage you to find a group that can encourage you in your business and in your faith.  If you can’t find that group locally, consider engaging in the conversation in our Facebook group for Christian Business Revolution.
