#069: Convergence: When Ministry Meets the Marketplace [Podcast]

We Have “Them and Us” Syndrome

One of the greatest travesties I’ve witnessed in my lifetime is intentional separation between the church and the marketplace. This mindset has crippled our ability to bring heaven on earth, and has paralyzed us in becoming relevant change agents in the culture.

On today’s program, I want to share with you the importance of Convergence: When Ministry Meets the Marketplace.

Biblical Principle:

Matthew 5:13-16

You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 10:16

Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.
