As Christians, God’s presence is said to reside in us (Ephesians 1:13-14; John 14:17). This means our presence at work represents God’s solutions for those who work around us. Not that we are the answer to people’s problems. But rather, we embody and portray God’s saving grace from the power of enslavement to sin, as we demonstrate His presence working in us. As we humble ourselves to Him, His work and power in us provides us the ability to demonstrate to those around us God’s patience and kindness, instead of our frustration and disdain. Our presence in the workplace should give a reflection of the God who created and redeemed us. (PMC) Consider: “But you are… a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).
