One Link in the Chain

Missing_LinkDo you know how influential you really are?

Every day, in everything we say and do, we are influencing people spiritually, either helping them move toward or away from a relationship with Christ.

A person’s journey toward Christ is not one giant leap but many small steps of faith influenced by an average of 16 people, individual links in a chain of spiritual influence.

Becoming a spiritually influential person isn’t about convincing people to pray a prayer of faith in Christ. It’s about intentionally joining the Holy Spirit’s work, respectfully helping them take one more step toward Christ, whether they are at the beginning, in the middle, or at the culmination of their spiritual journey.

Every interaction you have with people counts for eternity. You may be the next link in someone’s chain. You don’t have to be the entire chain. Just don’t be the missing link.

Who are you helping move toward Christ? Remember everything counts.

    It is not easy to remember that every moment counts when you are in the flurry of the day, when you have things to get done and results to achieve. But, yes, at the end of the day, we are all people who need God’s love. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. Good, solid thinking. I think Paul said something about one planting, another watering, etc., but it’s God who causes stuff to grow. Each step in the process is vital.

  3. I found your website after finding one of your articles I’d saved from 1999 from HomeLife.
    The article is “Real Men Are Dependent.”
    Great article by the way!
    Thank you.
