Influence

By

SERMONN.jpg Pete Cornell

If you think about your life, you can count on several fingers the names of those who have made an impact or continue to bear influence. These are the people who have spoken the words into your life that you replay over and over in your mind. Maybe that impact came from a parent or a grandparent. Or perhaps a coach or a teacher. Maybe you have been blessed to have a mentor or a close peer relationship that has been beneficial. My guess is that there have been many more than one, and that you even have one or more people today that you turn to for wise counsel or sage advice.

But did you ever stop to think about who you are influencing? Have you considered that your words or actions are making an impact on someone else? In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus invited his hearers to push past the humility of this consideration and to take seriously his challenge to bear influence on those around us. He did it through two common household items: salt and light. This week I’m going to post some highlights from this weekend’s sermon, titled “Influence.” I hope you’ll stay tuned.
