CBMC Forums Focus: A weekly blog to enlighten, encourage and equip Christian business leaders to lead in business using Biblical Business Principles.

Biblical Business Principle
Last week we focused on Closing a Sale – STRESS QUALITY. As you present your products / services, ideas, and the Gospel, do you stress quality?

This week we will focus on the final step on Closing a Sale stimulated by Section 4 of the book Jesus in the 9 – 5, by Dennis E. Hensley, PhD.

OFFER A GUARANTEE
Reputable businesses guarantee the capability and durability of their products and services to assure potential buyers that they will receive what the presentation is promising. Do you have a guarantee built into your proposals? Does your guarantee protect both the customer and the company by being clearly stated? As you stress benefits in your presentations, do you include the benefit of a guarantee?

As you present the Gospel do you stress God’s guarantees? They include: peace that goes beyond comprehension, fellowship that goes beyond human kindness, wisdom (and understanding) that goes beyond the world’s wisdom, purpose that endures, and most of all assurance of eternity with God. Beyond all this as Ephesians 1:14 NLT describes we receive The Spirit (which) is God’s guarantee that he will give us everything he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God.

Bit of Wisdom
His ever expanding, peaceful government will never end. He will rule forever with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David. The passionate commitment of the LORD Almighty will guarantee this! Isaiah 9:7 NLT
