Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.”
The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” - Exodus 4:10-12
One great way to bring Christ into your workplace is by starting a Bible Study. While legally, this must be optional, it’s a perfect way to allow employees to join in and either share their faith or learn about God for the first time.
Here are a few ideas on what starting a Bible Study in your workplace might look like:
Use a lunch out when people typically gather and start with a simple devotional. If your Bible Study becomes more of a stressor than a blessing, you may need to reevaluate if it’s serving its purpose. The goal is not to be recruiting people for your Bible study. It’s to let it grow naturally.
Sometimes it just takes someone being bold and offering to lead. Maybe this is you, or maybe it’s someone else. Whoever it may be, someone must take the first step to carry out the mission God has given. Remember God coming to Moses in the burning bush? There he told Moses to be his mouthpiece for the people of Israel. And what did Moses do? He came up with excuses for why he couldn’t do it. Yet God, in turn, emboldened his brother Aaron to speak while Moses performed the signs. Whether it was Moses or Aaron who spoke first, God was always going to be the one glorified. It takes courage and a strong will to serve others.
Study one book, chapter, or even verse from the Bible each meeting and have a few discussion questions ready, leaving time for fellowship and prayer. You’re not building out a full Sunday morning service. People are taking part in your Bible study to feel cared for and grow in their own walk with Christ.
Even if only one or two people show up each time, God will still be glorified. That’s the whole truth of it. “Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.” - Luke 15:7
You have all the tools you need to start a Bible Study in your organization. Not only is it perfectly legal, but it is also a huge morale booster for your team. Here at Christ at Work, we want to see you changing your workplace with the power of Christ’s love!
“Don’t withhold good from someone who deserves it when it is in your power to do so.”
“Instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others.”
