Today’s Scripture: Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1 Corinthians 4:2
What kind of impact can I have for Christ? Do you ever wonder that? Maybe you’re not a gifted speaker. Maybe you don’t have a golden voice or an inspiring pen.
But did you know that you can have a ripple effect for the Kingdom of Christ? Think about history for a minute. How would the gospels read had a simple man named Andrew not told his brother Peter about a man named Jesus? How would the New Testament read had Barnabas not taken the newly minted Christian, Paul, and built up his faith? How many people in America would be lost had a shoe salesman named Edward Kimball not told a young lad named D.L. Moody about the Lord?
Do you see the pattern? All it takes is one person going out on faith and reaching people where they are. You may be the only witness for Christ on your block. Who else is going to reach your needy neighbors? There could be one desperate soul at your workplace looking for the answers to life. Will you be their source of truth?
Heaven will only tell the true story of the aftershocks of your faithfulness to Christ. Countless souls may be walking the streets of glory who are a direct result of that one person you led to Christ.
Isn’t that an exciting thought? See, you really can make a difference in this world, and you can do it by sharing your faith with one soul at a time.
