Are You Making a Difference?

Are you making a difference in the lives of those around you? Each one of us has people in our lives that we can influence. People that we can make a positive difference in their lives. A difference that can have eternal consequences. It doesn’t matter who we are, we all have our sphere of influence. That sphere of influence may be only a few people or it may be thousands of individuals. What matters is that we make a positive influence in the lives that we touch.

Are you making a difference for Jesus? Are you using the gifts and abilities God has given you?  This is what the parable of the talents is about. By using the gifts God has entrusted us with here on earth will determine what we will be entrusted with in Heaven. (Matthew 25:14-30) (Luke 19:12-27)

If we are living for God, he will put people in our lives that we can help. Everyone will someday spend eternity either in Heaven or Hell. We should be concerned that those we know and love spend eternity in Heaven with us. How sad that anyone should be lost because we were afraid to reach out to them or don’t want to make the effort.

If we can make a difference in just one life. If we introduce just one person to Jesus Christ and eternal life. That person may lead their family and others to Christ, and then those lead others. We have no idea where it could lead.

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the apples in a seed. It is the same here on earth when we sow seeds of salvation.
