A friend of mine runs a company in a country fairly hostile to Christianity, especially when it’s introduced by “foreigners”. The other day he sent a note about what God has been doing through his business. He said, “There has been a movement of people in our area for the last couple of years. People coming to Christ continually in 2s or 3s or families. Some centered around our company. This week the local government called our manager in for questioning and training on ‘respect for other religions’. It is strange/significant that the local officials called our manager in and not the church leaders. I sometimes feel that people think my company is not Kingdom [work], but the local officials recognize something [different].”
My friend’s note made me wonder. Would I be guilty of a “crime” like that … being more of a Kingdom threat than the officially sanctioned church leaders in my area? What changes would I need to make in my life and in my practice in order to become a “threat” like that? How about you?
