I read this quote today by Pastor Brian Houston, Hillsong church, Sydney Australia,
“The devil doesn’t care how big your church is - he cares how influential it is.”
Jesus said that we are the salt of the earth and the light of the world - Influence.
Jesus said we are his Ambassadors, his representative, his voice, his hands, infact, the Bible says we are his body. Christ's body is to be visible in the world! It must be active in society and meeting the needs it encounters just like Jesus did. Infact, people ought to see Jesus in all we do. Through the good works that that the Bible says that God has prepared in advance for us to do, we easily pave the way to share the message of God's love and grace.
Church, we are called to be actively involved in meeting the needs in our society and not to just sit back and just commentate, remain detached or ignore the issue. If things get worse we have only ourselves to blame!
I believe the influence of our church should be increasing not decreasing. may God's kingdom come and his will be done in MK.
Who are you influencing today?
