To influence or to be influenced? How do we translate a word to our real life, using God given talent and wisdom to influence and make a different in the society or people’s life.
To be different; we must have something unique that others don’t have,or our actions must reflect and impart others.
Jesus lived a different life that influences so many people and performed different miracles that endeared him to his followers;
Walking in water, feeding thousands with a piece of loaf and fish, healing the sick ,raising the death and forgiveness of sin etc.
What is miracle? Some may see and understand the motives in different way.
Eg: as entertainment, advertisements, to show the spiritual power of God, To show that one is holier than other, to show God’s love to others and to glorify thee.
It needs a lot of strength and courage to trust and believe in God , when we are physically challenged.
To show Gods love to others and glorify God;
. The Good Samaritan (Luke 10)
. Jesus and Zaccheaus ( Luke19)
. Jesus and the adulterous woman ( John 8)
. Luke 10:19-20; Jesus send 70 disciplines, two by two.
Salt and light always represent something in small amount that has a great influence.
We many not live an easy life because of physical and spiritual challenge but Gods grace will continue to sustain and shield us in all situations.
. We are not an accident being, but one body broken for all and for all to eat and live.
