Market Seventy: Reclaiming the marketplace

Count the Cost

Are you considering answering God’s call on your organization as a Kingdom company? WAIT! Take a breath and “count the cost.” Jesus counsels us to seriously consider if we have what it takes to complete what we start (Luke 14:28-30). When disciples said they would follow him, he warned them that the road would not be easy and to be sure that they would not turn back when it got rough (Luke 9:57-62).

What about you? Take a good look at yourself and the resources and resolve of your organization. If you are to make this commitment to Marketplace Ministry, be sure you are ready to carry it through. Marketplace transformation takes time, energy, money and most of all, a tremendous amount of prayer.

You will, most certainly, encounter resistance from some and even outright attack from others. You will likely be misunderstood and even vilified. If your path becomes public knowledge, you must be prepared for to be both praised and criticized (John 15:20).

Are you ready?

Here’s a simple test. Did you actually look up any of the scripture passages above? No? Ask yourself how hard you are willing to work to become a transforming power in your sphere of influence.

Market 70 will stand by you throughout your transformation journey if you count the cost and make the commitment.
