Christianity is supposed to be a relationship with a living person. Yet for many Christianity is going to church, membership in some religion or local body, or doing some work or business in the church. Ministry, the working business of the Church may replace this relationship and the person of Christ in the lives of believers. The Great Business is about how we might change the focus from mere religion, ministry works and duties to Christ Himself. In this change of focus, looking unto Christ, I believe we will begin to see and know the living Savior. We will not only see and know Him but be transformed into His image as we do.
David Tipton born in Superior Wisconsin in 1953. In my childhood we moved and lived throughout the Midwest. Our family settled in Indiana where I would attend high school and play football. We would go on to play college football at Western Illinois University and then profession football for several years. Coming out of football we established a business trading commodities in Chicago then went back to school to prepare for ministry. Returning to Indiana we pastored for twenty-five years. During those years pastoring we were bi-vocational ironworking in the city of Chicago. One of my hobbies is riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle with my wife and touring throughout the states. I wrote this out of my experience in the Church seeing many Christians whose Christianity had little or no knowledge of Christ Himself, for religion, form, ministry, rules and ethics had replaced Christ in their lives.
