How Lent Can Make a Difference in Your Relationship with God

Support Staff Encouragement for Life Leave a Comment

By Rev. Dr. Mark D. Roberts, How Lent Can Make a Difference in Your Relationship with God

Growing up as an evangelical Christian, I experienced Lent as little more than a joke. “What are you giving up for Lent?” my friends would ask. “Homework,” I’d say with a smirk, or “Obeying my parents.” Lent was one of those peculiar practices demanded of Roman Catholics – another great reason to be Protestant, I figured. It never even occurred to me that Lent was something I might actually be interested in, or benefit from, or decide to keep, or come to value as a way of getting to know God better. In the last fifteen years I’ve discovered that Lent is in fact recognized by millions of Protestant Christians, in addition to Catholic and Orthodox believers. (The Eastern Orthodox Lent is longer than the Catholic or Protestant Lent, and it begins before Ash Wednesday.) Lent (the word comes from the Middle English word for “spring”) is a six-week season in the Christian year prior to Easter. (Technically, Lent comprises the 40 days before Easter, not counting the Sundays, or 46 days in total.)

Zach Harrison Insurance Agency

Darrel Geis Faith at Work Spotlights

Company Name: Zach Harrison Insurance Agency

Phone Number: 937-847-9800

Web Address: www.zachharrisonins.com

Address:  440 W Main St Fairborn OH 45324

 

 

Business Description: Zach Harrison Insurance Agency is a family owned independent insurance agency offering Auto, Home, Life, and Business Insurance. They represent multiple companies including Travelers, Safeco, State Auto, Progressive and more. They look forward to meeting and establishing relationships with everyone that calls or comes in their doors looking for a competitive rate on any type of insurance.

 

  • How is your business different from others in the same line of work? How does that difference benefit your customers? Being a one-man Insurance operation is different I think from most other local insurance agencies. The good thing about this though is you know you are going to be talking to me when you call in and have a question. I am the one who wrote your policy and will recognize you when you call instead of talking to someone you’ve never met. I try to make everything more personal so that you feel comfortable buying your insurance through me.

 

  • How did you come to faith in Christ? – I started at a young age going to church with my parents who started me into playing guitar with the youth worship band. I went on a youth retreat when I was 12 years old and decided there that I wanted to be baptized and when I got home my father baptized me at our church a few weeks later. I have been a member of that same church to this day.

 

  • How does being a Christian affect how you conduct your business? – You just see people different when you are a believer. You want to help them and love of them the way Jesus did throughout the Bible. Even on the tough days I always find myself asking God why I’m in this situation. I am here for a reason. It just helps to know that you’re doing a job that has been hand picked for you.

 

  • What ministry/cause is near and dear to your heart, and why? – I have always been on the worship team at my church. I started when I was 10 years old playing with the youth band and still play on the big stage today. It is just something amazing leading hundreds of people in songs of worship and seeing how they are interacting with God. To watch a room, fill with the holy spirit is something that just fills my heart up.

 

  • What is one interesting thing about you or your business that most people would not know? So, as an insurance agent some might think that I am just good with people and computers maybe. But, I was actually born into a family of hard working electricians. My Grandpa, dad, uncles, and even brother are all electricians. So, I do have some of that hand tool knowledge and enjoy building things. I’m in the process of finishing my basement right now by myself. I will frame, do the electric, plumbing, floor, hang drywall, etc. I love working with my hands after sitting in an office all day!

 

  • Why do you advertise in the Christian Blue Network? – I advertise with Christian Blue Network because of our shared belief in an almighty God. I feel like if we all come together as believers and share our businesses with each other and truly run them the way God wants us to he will bless us all. I really believe that Christian Blue Network is doing a great thing by bringing us together in that way.

Game Day

By Darrel Geis, Game Day

With my alma mater Ohio State having recently competed in the College Football Playoff, I was reminded of a memory from my college days in the 1980s that God used to plant seeds in my heart and draw me to Christ.

Before every home football game outside of Ohio Stadium, students involved with OSU Bible Studies would pass out Game Day rosters featuring Buckeyes players and their opponents. I was always eager to get a copy to follow the players by their number on the field.

The Pair of Shoes

Support Staff Encouragement for Life 2 Comments

By John Hartz, The Pair of Shoes

As a small business owner I am constantly caught in the battle between the things I would like to be doing and the things my business makes me do. There have been so many books written on the struggle of the small businessman to move from working for his business to working on his business. Because we are constantly doing the work itself we have little time to do that higher order, higher priority “stuff” that will actually grow our business. And that, my dear friend, is aggravating. Really, whether you are a business owner or an employee, there is little that can bring more frustration to your soul than doing “menial” things while more “valuable” work goes undone.

Being Influential Begins by Being Salt and Light

By Hugh Whelchel, Institute for Faith, Work & Economics:

Over the last few months, I’ve talked to many Christians who fear they are living in a world that is spinning out of control – especially during a chaotic election season. They feel helpless, without the power to do anything about it.

I like to share with them “Four Ways Christians Can Influence the World,” an article written by the late John Stott.

By Darrel Geis, What Was Your Big Rock in 2015?

As we begin the New Year, it’s always appropriate to take a moment to reflect back on the previous twelve months, and thank God for his provisions and protection. What’s even better, though, is to intentionally “mark” a moment (or moments) where God made clear His purposes (i.e. through answered prayer or God-incidence), so that you never forget the lesson for the rest of your life.

I often hear advertisements from businesses that claim “we are a business you can trust”. Many say this, and, ideally, their claims are proven to be true. Everyone – Christian or not – prefers to work with businesses they can trust, but what “filter” can consumers use beforehand to help assure trustworthiness?

These are two of the most simple, yet profound, words that Jesus Christ spoke during his life here on earth. He spoke them to twelve men he chose as his closest companions, the people that would take the message of God’s amazing grace and love to the world. They were average, ordinary people.

By Darrel Geis, Righteousness vs. Compromise

Over my 23 years the Christian Blue Pages, I’ve had the opportunity to observe Christians – in hundreds of situations – taking a stand for righteousness in their businesses. In situations where compromising one’s values might be expedient and beneficial to the “bottom line”, or unnoticeable to a watching world, it is critical that we as Christians in business do what’s right in the eyes of God.

By Darrel Geis, Bloom Where You are Planted

I love sports, and earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Ohio State in order to direct that passion towards my ultimate goal — to be a sports anchor for a major network by 1999. But after two years working at a TV station at night and selling advertising for the Christian Blue Pages during the day, I was offered the position as Blue Pages sales manager. After much prayer, I sensed I was being “called” by God into leadership in this organization, and that gave me great peace.
