Beloved, good morning, how are doing? Hope all is well with you. Are you life and light to those around you as we learnt yesterday? We will be learning more of it as the message of today is to here to further help us to be what the will of God is for us.

Don’t forget, you are the light, you are the salt of earth, we must be not lighted and covered neither must we lose our sweetness else will be useless and be thrown away and match upon.

We are to impact those around us, do you agree if you do please let discover more:

 Impact!

 

I live 14 stories above two busy crossroads. From time-to-time I will hear the screech of tires… silence… and then IMPACT!

IMPACT! Isn’t that the effect we are to have with the Gospel upon our lost friends. But the IMPACT is to be primarily through the power of example: Salt that penetrates, and light that illuminates from our life to theirs. (Matthew 5:13, 16)

Paul told the Philippians, ” I have given you a pattern” by which to live. (Philippians 3:17) That is, he had left an impression, a stamp, or imprint upon them. He had IMPACTED their lives by the power of his godly example.

I am reminded of missionary martyr Jim Elliot’s prayer, ” Lord, make my life a crossroads in the life of every person I meet.

Years ago I played racquetball each week with a professional man who had given scant attention to spiritual matters. He did however pride himself on his self-control. Yet, occasionally in the course of a heated contest he would ” lose it” by cursing or throwing his racquet across the court.

I can remember praying on numerous occasions during those intense moments of competition ” Lord, help me to exhibit your love and character on this court. Help me to keep my cool.”

One day, after six months of intense competition, he asked if we might study the Scriptures together. Today he is a committed follower of Christ. Again, the power of example. IMPACT.

QUESTION: If it is true that the non-verbals do in fact speak more loudly than the verbals, what messages are you sending to your lost friends? To your children?

  • Messages of anger… greed… pride… and self-centeredness?
  • Or of brokenness… kindness, humility, servanthood, and dependence upon God?

How you answer that question spells the difference as to whether you are penetrating and illuminating them with the Gospel, or impeding them from the Gospel.

 We will impact not all those in our environment but also our household. let’s find out more:

Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.” Joel 1:3

                                                                       

In this simple way, by God’s grace, a living testimony for truth is always to be kept alive in the land—the beloved of the Lord are to hand down their witness for the gospel, and the covenant to their heirs, and these again to their next descendants. This is our firstduty, we are to begin at the family hearth: he is a bad preacher who does not commence his ministry at home.

The heathen are to be sought by all means, and the highways and hedges are to be searched, but home has a prior claim, and woe unto those who reverse the order of the Lord’s arrangements. To teach our children is a personal duty; we cannot delegate it to Sunday School Teachers, or other friendly aids, these can assist us, but cannot deliver us from the sacred obligation; proxies and sponsors are wicked devices in this case: mothers and fathers must, like Abraham, command their households in the fear of God, and talk with their offspring concerning the wondrous works of the Most High.

Parental teaching is a natural duty—who so fit to look to the child’s well-being as those who are the authors of his actual being? To neglect the instruction of our offspring is worse than brutish. Family religion is necessary for the nation, for the family itself, and for the church of God. By a thousand plots satan and his cohorts are covertly advancing in our land, and one of the most effectual means for resisting its inroads is left almost neglected, namely, the instruction of children in the faith.

Would that parents would awaken to a sense of the importance of this matter. It is a pleasant duty to talk of Jesus to our sons and daughters, and the more so because it has often proved to be an accepted work, for God has saved the children through the parents’ prayers and admonitions. May every house into which this volume shall come honour the Lord and receive His smile.

Beloved, we are to impact our household, our family, our workers, and everyone we come across. We must be fully engage for the Lord and we will be blessed.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
