DAY 16 - A PERSON OF IMPACT
Who are you? What were you made for? What personal blindspots have been revealed so far? Those are a few of the questions we have been asking ourselves over the past two weeks during our 21 Day Prayer & Fasting Journey.
There is another question to contemplate as well - and it's a big one - What impact are you making in the world around you?
Say this out loud: I AM A PERSON OF IMPACT!
You are a person of impact. Everywhere you go and with every encounter and every experienceyou have with others, you leave your mark, an impression on another person's life, but do you have an accurate read on the impact you are making?
As a follower of Christ, you were sent on a mission to Go into "your" world and peach the gospel. To go and make disciples...baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20)
As a member of the Body of Christ you have been sent by Christ to impact "your" world with the love and Good News of Christ. The impact you have in "your world" matters.
Exercise: Consider the impact you are having on others in the 15 areas listed below: Mon
Your Body Language
Conversations we have
Tone of Voice
The Comments we make
Stories we tell
Questions we ask
Responses we give
Values we stand for
Choices we make
Places we go
People we support/don't support
Money we spend
Money we give
That's a short list, but a good one to start analyzing the impact you are having on others. If you are really serious, ask someone (ie. spouse, friend, co-worker, etc) for honest feedback see yourself take a LEAP forward in your personal growth!
