2 5. Being a Disciple in the Workplace Philippians 2: p. 1085

3 Being a Disciple in the Workplace  John Dickson Seminar – “Religious violence”  Debate In Australia: changed 1 person’s mind  “Think of someone you know who is a Christian – is the world a better place with them or without them?” (v 15-16)  Be someone who makes the world a better place !  Things I have learned in recent years...  W itness; O rientation; R esource; K ingdom

4 1. W itness  Being a Witness:  Tell other people about Jesus and what He has done for them.  There is a better way to understand my God-given role in the workplace  Two lessons: 1. Try to let work colleagues know that I am a Christian asap. 2. Don’t be weird in conversation

5 2. O rientation  The primary purpose of our lives  Why are we here? What are we trying to do?  What are they... What should they be. (v 12, 13)  How do I bring God into my working life?  Tried to remember memory verses and devotional points through the day – generally unhelpful.  Rather: pay attention to what God is doing...  Focus: how should I be partnering with God in what He is already doing?

6 3. Resource  “It is God who works in you” (v 13)  God is always at work – “Experiencing God”  Temptations:  Grumbling; Arguing (v 14)  “Being poured out like a drink offering” (v 17)  “Work out your salvation” (v 12) “For... It is God who works in you” (v 13)

7 4. Kingdom  Live as “children of God” (v 15) eager to “boast on the day of Christ” (v 16)  Expanding our purpose: Be the Kingdom of God breaking into the world. Extend the Shalom of God into your workplace.  Every kindness, every good deed matters.  All the instructions in Philippians are plural. We do this in Community.

8 Being a Disciple in the workplace  W itness – appropriate to the opportunities God creates.  O rientation – Be about God’s good purposes.  R esource – “It is God who works in you...”  K ingdom – Extend the Shalom of God into the world
