BUSINESS DEDICATION SERMON

Today, we dedicate a business office and a business to God. There is nothing wrong with dedicating business. In fact, all these were good and of God as long as we do this in accordance to purpose and  of Him, the author and perfecter of our faith.

Almost all “BUSINESS DEDICATION” asks God’s blessings for our businesses. And in fact, this is the reason why we are here, to ask God for His blessing for this new established business office.  But most of these dedications can also be easily forgotten simply because the heart of the business owner is focussed on the business and not of God. This is why tonight, we want to make it different. We will be asking God for his blessings, and in return give to God what is due to him, the business itself.

Here are some reminders for us as owner, and as witnesses of this special day.

Do Not Let Wealth Hinder Your Service To God

In the book of Matthew 19:24 it says,  “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God.”  The passage talks about people who are wealthy but because wealth, it has been harder for them to obey God, to follow Jesus Christ.

Do Not Let Your Hearts Love Money
In the book of 1 Timothy 6:10 it says, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some have been led astray from the faith in their greed, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” The Bible has been very clear that the “Love of Money, is the root of all evil.” When we start loving money, it will be the beginning of our spiritual downfall. Love of money is a form of idolatry which is evidenced by covetousness, evil desires, greediness and all other kinds of evil.

Do Not Let Your Focus Turn Away From God

In the book of Ecclesiastes 1:2-3 say,  “Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities—all is vanity.  What profit has a man of all his labor which he takes under the sun?” King Solomon in all his spledor, with all his wealth, with all his riches, with all his fame, have seen all these things as vanity under the sun unless that labor is for the Lord.

Conclusion
Where does your desire and purpose of your business rest? Is it to enrich ourselves? Or to give glory to the King who gives it?

BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENT PRAYER

_Outside the doorway_

May God give His blessing on this place. God bless it from roof to floor, from wall to wall, from end to end, from its foundation and in its covering.

In the strong name of the Triune God: all evil be banished, all disturbance cease, captive spirits freed, God’s Spirit alone dwell within these walls.

We call upon the Sacred Three to save, shield and surround this place, this day, and every day.

_In the entrance or reception room

_May all be welcome here, friend and stranger, from near and far. May each be blessed and honoured as they enter.

There is a friend’s love in the gentle heart of the saviour. For love of him we offer friendship and welcome every guest.

_In each room and work area

_Peace be here in the name of the king of life, the peace of Christ above all peace; the Lord’s blessing over all. _ _May God the Father be the guardian of this place and bring his peace.

May his love be shared, and his will be found here, and peace between all people. May the Spirit bring lightness and laughter here. May he be the strengthener and comforter in times of difficulty.

May the Lord give peace but never complacency. Here may encouragement be found and relationships strengthened.

Each day, every day, each going out, and each returning, the Lord bless you and keep you.

Peace between person and person; peace between all who work here; the peace of Christ above all peace; peace between friends each day and every day.

We pray for all who work here: (names). May the joy and peace of heaven be with you and around you. The Lord bless you.

_At the door

_Christ, in our coming and in our leaving, be the Door and the Keeper for us and all who work in this place, this day and every day, ever and always. Amen.
