Bold Faith in the Workplace The Christian blogger, David Rupert, writes, “The problem for the lifestyle follower of Christ, is that it’s not that easy to dissect a transformed life. There’s really no such thing as a private faith. If my heart is changed, so too is my passion. If my spirit is flipped, so too is my thought process. A true Christian always oozes it – the transformation cannot stay silent.”
Reading this, my question to you is, “Are you harboring a private faith or are you vocal about your regard for Christ?” It’s a hard question to answer when we live in a world that prefers the Christian to leave his or her beliefs on the church door stoop each and every Sunday. We’re all walking the tightrope between our faith and the outside world each and every day. We’re basically holding the balance beam and wobbling back and forth between what our human resource department advises and what God expects.
I’ve been there. I’ve wrestled the ugly demon of political correctness and I’m sad to say, I once gave into it and lived two separate lives. It wasn’t until I started preaching at my events on Sunday mornings and opened the doors to He’s the Solution that I was totally “woke,” as they say these days, to a faith well-lived in the spotlight. I stopped hiding my core values to appease my bottom line, and my faith is the better for it.
Now, you may say, “That’s easy for you to say when you’re the boss.” It’s true, we pray at work, we talk about God in our meetings, and we make no bones that we are a Christian organization. I’m the CEO so I’ve sewn it into the very fabric of my business and the environment and culture of our company has become ripe with believers because of it.
It’s may not be as easy for you to boldly bring your faith into the workplace. I get that… So what can you do? What steps can you follow that will allow you to live and act boldly in Christ?
