John 1:36 NIV | “When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!” When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.”
What happens when people hear you speak? What effect do your words have on them? What do you inspire in them? The disciples of John the Baptist heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
Do people become more worldly and materialistic, and run after mammon and filthy lucre, as a result of their interaction with you, or do they become more spiritual? Do you inspire greed and stress, or do you inspire contentment and peace? Do you promote self gratification, or do you promote self denial, and submission to the will of the Holy Spirit? Do you enable ‘Ishmaels’ in the lives of others, or do you enable ‘Isaacs’?
What influence do you have on people? We can’t give what we don’t have. May you grow deeper in your love and intimacy with the Holy Spirit, that others may ‘hear’ you and follow Him.
