Intentional Influence

What is our calling?
Acts 1:6–8 

Why was the Holy Spirit sent to us? 
To give us power to be His witnesses.

Matthew 28:18-20; Ezekiel 3:17–21

There is power in our testimony
Some key points to think about as you develop your story:

  • What was my life like before Christ?

  • What drew me to Christ?

  • What is my life like afterwards

  • Why does it matter?

  • The hope I now have.

Relational intentionality
Who is in my circle of influence?

  • Family

  • Friendships
  • Neighborhood

  • Workplace

  • Involvements

We need to recognize these as places God has intentionally planted us!

Analyze our influence
Am I living a credible life?

  • Do I need to repair my relationship?

  • Do I need to repent of bad behavior?

  • Do they know my faith?

Fixing the past calls for apology and an invitation.

Three keys to building influence:

  1. Choose to love.

  2. Choose to serve.

  3. Choose to be patient
