It’s a tricky topic for every Christian with a job. What role should your faith play at work?

Do you have to drop your faith at the door to your office? Is it even legal to talk about religion at work?

Whether it’s a classroom, cubicle or car, your faith can play an important role in your work environment.

Examine your motivation for your job. Ask the Lord to show you His purposes for the role He has you in.

In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus says, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Ask God to increase your care and compassion for your co-workers. Remember that God has placed you there for a specific purpose. 

What would happen if you became more vocal about your faith at work? Could you be fired? Denied a promotion? Don’t worry, it is legal to talk about your faith at work, especially during lunch and breaks.
