Excellence in Process

What would our work look like if we allowed God to “establish the work of our hands”? (Psalm 90:17) Learn and apply Scriptural principles to every aspect of your operations. As skilled as we might be in our areas of expertise, “’my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD.” (Isaiah 55:8) Revisit every procedure in light of God’s plans for you.

Funding Transformation

Don’t let this step put you off. By this time in the transformation process, the Kingdom organization has learned that allowing the Holy Spirit to guide all decisions results in outcomes we cannot even conceive on our own, much less achieve. Make giving decisions the same way you have learned to plan strategically – guided by Him “who will tell what is yet to come.” (John 16:13)

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.

Be a Transformation Leader

Jesus makes it clear that “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”( Luke 12:48)

Now that you have committed yourself and your organization to be intentionally transformational, you are called to step up and impart what you are experiencing to your entire sphere of influence. A transformation company is a discipling organization, teaching and exhorting others to make the commitment to reclaim the marketplace. Jesus doesn’t condone burying our talents.“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” (Luke 11:23)
