Impact Others | Day 5

by

We’ve covered a lot of ground this week as we’ve considered how we can impact others. Take some time to reflect on each mission field. Where is God asking you to focus?

Reflect

We’ve talked about impacting others in:

  • Our home
  • Our church
  • Our community
  • Our world

Read through the passages we read this week and ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you through the Word: 

1 Corinthians 13:1–8

Romans 12:1–8

Matthew 25:34–40

1 Corinthians 15:3­–6

Connect

Our desire to impact others should flow from our love for God and our faith in Christ. It’s not something we do to prove we’re a “good person” or in the hopes of getting something in return. Jesus Christ laid down his life so we could live for eternity in his presence. This is something he did for all of humanity, and it’s a message we get to share.

The Holy Spirit empowers us so we can make a difference in the lives of others right now. We have experienced God’s love, goodness, and mercy, so let’s share what we’ve received with those around us. Ephesians 2:10 tells us, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Spend some time in prayer and ask God how he would have you impact others.

Respond

How is God calling you to impact others? Think about something you can do in the short term, today or this week, and something you’d like to work towards in the next month or so. Consider asking a trusted friend to hold you accountable.
