How the Green Lantern's Superpower Can Become Yours Too.

How the Green Lantern's Superpower Can Become Yours Too.

Today we feature a sermon from FDE Podcast Co-Host Rusty Rueff. https://subsplash.com/cornerstonetv/lb/mi/+vs34rmp
Please do consider what your Superpower is, and how often you tap in to it. With that knowledge you too might be used by God to do amazing things…for Him while experiencing His joy in doing so.

All Time Classic Sermon, "The Beast, the Book, the Beauty and the Lamb" by John Piper

All Time Classic Sermon, "The Beast, the Book, the Beauty and the Lamb" by John Piper

These are all time classic sermons that have nothing, at face value, to do with entrepreneurship, and then upon reflection… everything to do with the life of a Christ following entrepreneur. John Piper wants more than any others I know, to make sure that we don’t miss the centrality of the Good News. Try to stick around for the whole thing. The last 15 minutes are, I think, a thing of beauty.

Do You Know What is Shaping Your Desires?

Do You Know What is Shaping Your Desires?

Take a listen to this sermon by Toby Kurth at Christ Church San Francisco for a check on your motivations. This message isn’t necessarily about being an entrepreneur, but is very much about being a follower of Christ, and so it has everything to do with being a FAITH DRIVEN entrepreneur.

My Daily Sermon - John Elliot

My Daily Sermon - John Elliot

Two months ago, I woke up as lead pastor of Christ Community—a church I helped plant in 2011 with two of my closest friends. This morning I woke up as COO of FarmAfield—an ag tech company that is using software to create new connections between farmers and investors. At first glance, these may seem like two very different ventures and, in many ways, they are. At Christ Community, I spent my days preparing sermons, counseling congregants, and officiating weddings. In my new role at FarmAfield, I spend my time pitching investors, interviewing customers, and helping to develop software. The differences are so stark that even I wondered how much I’d be able to draw from the former as I engaged in the latter.

But it wasn’t long into my time with FarmAfield that some old, very familiar doubts came rushing back:

“Did God really call me to this?

If you spend any time browsing through the titles of Tim Keller's sermons, you'd think that he rarely talks about faith in the workplace.  However, spend some time listening to his sermons (on the Gospel in Life podcast among other sources) and you'll find that he talks about faith and work quite a bit.  His sermon, "A World of Idols" is a great example of this.

"Faith and Work" - a Sermon by Tim Keller

"Faith and Work" - a Sermon by Tim Keller

I have listened to Tim Keller thousands of times.  Literally. Tim started accompanying me on runs 20 years ago.  He always kept up, and never seemed to break a sweat. I’m not sure Tim made me a faster runner (in fact, I’m sure the opposite….he can’t hold a candle to a good house music track IMO for running negative splits), but I’m sure he has made me a better follower of Christ and since my competitive running days are long gone, I’ll take that trade every day.

Every once in a while I (HK) will highlight a sermon that I think is especially good and helpful for the entrepreneurial journey, but without any mention of being a business owner per se. This work from Toby Kurth is one of those.  From time to time we need a message that brings us radically back to the faith that we have and that makes the “faith” part of the Faith Driven Entrepreneur.

The Hidden Life

The Hidden Life

At first glance (or in this case, listen), this sermon delivered by Ryan Jones at Reality San Francisco doesn’t have much to do with entrepreneurship.  This isn’t one to listen to if you want to crack the code on how to hire or fire folks, or even how to set a culture. But if you listen to it I think that you’ll come way feeling that it was written for you, the entrepreneur, and that you’re better for having listened to it.  I bet you forward this to at least one person.
