“The 3 Loves,” by Kreider and Seibert

“We allow our controversies, not our central values, to define us. Our journey is one of learning to put first things first—to radically love Jesus, His people and the lost….

“Most people are not called to full-time vocational ministry, but are involved in ministering in their workplaces and neighborhoods. You might say, ‘I’m not a missionary; I’m just a businessman.’ Well, in God’s kingdom, no one is ‘just a businessman.’ They are either called by God to business or they are not. If they are, then the Great Commandment and the Great Commission need to be lived out in their business world. The same is true for those called to arts and entertainment, social work, education, construction and every other field. Whatever God calls you to do, that is your place of influence and ministry.

“When we really take hold of Jesus’ values, and walk them out every day, we cannot help but have an impact on the world around us. As we personally experience His love, presence and power, God brings us into a family of believers who can change our lives. We can take part in transforming the world around us so that His purposes can be fulfilled on the earth.”
