Topic: Living a Life of Impact [Tuesday February 7, 2017]
Scripture: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13.
Thought For The Day: Until we live to give, we are not alive at all.
Our LORD Jesus Christ is a perfect example of a life of impact. He lived a ministerial life for only three and a half years but the Bible recorded that no book on earth can record the exploits of His life (John 21:25); He lived beyond His time. He made an indelible impact that will span all eternity.
In the same way, we can live beyond our time by exploits as Christians since the same Jesus Christ lives in us. There are people who have died and can never be forgotten. Some of them include Mother Theresa of Calcutta, India, Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, William Wilberforce (who moved the motion for the abolition of slave trade in the British Parliament) and several others. These people are generational impacters.
The irony of life is that there are people who have died and cannot be forgotten but there are people who are alive and cannot be remembered. What is the difference between these two groups of people?
Impact is the joy of giving that constitutes the joy of living. Until we live to give, we are not alive at all.
Beloved, make up your mind to impact your world.
Remember this: Until we live to give, we are not alive at all.
1. Ask God for the grace to make you relevant to your generation.
2. Decide to live a life that will positively impact society.

Prayer: O LORD, help me not to waste my life but to use it for the benefit of humanity. I make demands on the grace for impact in Jesus’ Name.
