The ministry of Jesus on earth lasted for three and half years but the Bible recorded that no book on earth can record the exploits of Jesus. He is a perfect example of a life of impact. He lived beyond His time, and we shall continue to talk about Him till eternity.
There are people who have died and cannot be forgotten, and there are people who are alive but cannot be remembered. The difference between these two groups of people is impact. As children of God, the Bible refers to us as light in the darkness, salt to the world, and ambassadors of Jesus Christ. God expect us to be more than just mere ordinary people, we are to live an extraordinary life of impact, so that we can impact the people around us to the glory of God.
Your life is not for you alone; you are meant to be a blessing to others! Your purpose on earth should be to direct people to know God and to worship Him. To fellowship with other believers and to minister to the needs of others. Therefore, you need to be a mentor to someone in need, to motivate the people around you and help them become people of influence.
Heb. 13:6; Luke 6:38.
Give more than what is expected, help someone in need, smile with people, be receptive and accommodating. A smile is a universal language that can literally change someone’s day. Look for ways to make a difference; help a colleague meet a tight deadline. Run errands for friends and family members. Buy someone a gift, demonstrate a sincere gratitude for every favor done to you. Love the strangers on the street, love everyone around you. Increase your relationship with those you love. Don’t be swallowed up with distractions from business and others to the extent that it robs you of the opportunity to refresh your mind and body; and increase your level of happiness by spending quality time with your family.
Your family is the first assignment that God has given you, you are to ensure you create time for quality relationship with them. God wants you to make a difference in this world, we are here to change things, to show forth the love of Christ and manifest His goodness to mankind. John Wesley said, “Light yourself on fire and people will come from miles away to watch you burn.” Light yourself on fire by your good deeds, let men see you and glory God for your life. Inconvenience yourself to make someone smile today, you will not lose your reward in Jesus Name.
1. Lord, make me a pacesetter, make me a testimony of your goodness.
2. I want to be that person that you have blessed, so that I can always have to give.
I am the light in the darkness.
I live an extraordinary life of impact.
I am a testimony.
I am plus, not a minus.
I am a distributor, not a beggar.
So help me God.
