Luke 14:23
“Then the master told his servant,
‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and
compel them to come in, so that my house will be full…” 

Have Believers become so entrenched in wanting blessing that we have neglected the power of Blessing?

Influence – The Effect on character, development, Behavior 

Live in such a way that when people speak evil of you no one will believe them…God at work in a life… 

James 4 will reveal many all-important realities of God and His work in us to “INFLUENCE” a Christ reality in this world.

James 1:4, 5, 8, then back to verse 3

Matt. 5:14
You are the light of the world.
A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.


You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?
It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand,
and it gives light to all who are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

God blesses to let the Nations know He is God. Ez. 37:28, He gives increase, peace, and dwells with us so those who do not know will know - Him!!!

God’s Influence is guidance, power, provision, increase…His Given Influence through us is Grace, Mercy, and Forgiveness…His Total work is LIFE!!! Abundant LIFE!!!  

Phil 4:19…when you are refreshed and blessed those within your Circle of Influences will know He is God… Psalm 84:11 states, “No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

The times I’ve reasoned away God’s touch in my life because of fear or deservedness are too numerous…as I grow and know I change those around me!!! He is God too me!!! He is God too YOU!!!
