Our Competitive Advantage in His Presence

Most of you know about my book, Our Unfair Advantage, where I teach how to better listen to and work with God’s power in your business. 

Yet among many young leaders and entrepreneurs I advise get so busy or distracted they forget to tap into the overwhelming competitive advantage in His presence.

So here is a simple infographic with 39 amazing advantages of His presence in your business.

Power in His Presence

Business ROI

As a marketplace believer, you can could quickly estimate the return on investment (ROI) for any one of these 39 advantages in your workplace. For example, it is easy for you to quickly infer the ROI of:

  • Greater harmony at work through reconciliation and grace
  • Lower benefits costs through a supernatural healing
  • Long-range impact of kingdom creativity or innovation
  • Immediate impact of greater discernment in decision making
  • Short-term return of a transformed process, system or vendor relationship

Kingdom EROI

Beyond the obvious business ROI, you also can envision the kingdom eternal return on investment (EROI) of any and all of these being alive and well in your workplace.

Yes, you will receive rewards in heaven (more on this is later posts).

Yes, you work today for your eternal place of service in His kingdom.

Yes, how you leverage His presence today dramatically determines what you will do forever.

An Exhortation

My exhortation to you is this: keep this Power in His Presence infographic handy. Refer to it often if not every day. Refresh yourself in the knowledge that all these and many more advantages are available to you both at work and at home.

    What a beautiful and powerful infographic Jim, well done!

    You asked for more-how about completing the fruits of the Spirit with Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness and Self-Control. What business environment could not benefit from those attributes today?

    Lastly, on EROI, what about Kingdom Advancement? By allowing His Presence in companies, millions of employees who are searching for the truth of Jesus Christ sitting at their desks, driving a truck or working on a manufacturing floor, will experience and come to a saving knowledge!

      Thanks Jason. Excellent additions to this basic list. (You noticed I only added a few of the fruit—-good catch— knew someone sharp like you would notice :-) ) Totally agree on your EROI — that is EXACTLY what your destiny is with Marketplace Chaplains – taking His presence into the marketplace!
