Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. –Galatians 6:10
I believe that one of the greatest opportunities we have as Christians is to make a profound difference in the lives of others. Throughout my life of ministry, God has given me the opportunity to share teaching from His Word with many people who need guidance.
But I don’t believe this is a special opportunity that God made just for me. Everyone, you included, has the ability to influence someone. When you take the time to reach out to others and invest in someone’s life, you are impacting the world.. yours and theirs.
Galatians 6:10 tells us to be mindful to be a blessing to everyone God brings across our path. We are called to be a blessing and build up others in their faith, to not be afraid to reach out and to speak the truth in love.
I believe God wants us to be more than mere spectators in life. He wants us to be willing to pour into their lives. We need to build up others in Jesus’ name so they can grow and reach even more people.
Whether you know it or not, someone’s watching and looking up to you. People are influenced by the way you live and they need to see God’s love in your everyday actions.
At times we’ll make mistakes, and when we do we can thank God for His forgiveness, but we also have to realize that many times we may be the only evidence of God some people see.
