Titus 2:7-8

In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

We influence the people around us. Some may have a more powerful influence by the positions they hold, but the fact remains that no matter how insignificant you think you are, you influence someone. That influence can be used either as a tool for the good or it will be used by the enemy.

The Apostle Paul tells us in the letter to Titus to have a good pattern of behavior in our lives and to be a good example through our works. He explains that in our doctrine we should have the following: integrity, dignity, and wholesome speech. Doctrine is not only for the ministry, but all of us are responsible for the doctrine we project to others.

If your doctrine isn’t projecting the love of God through the full Word of God, then your doctrine is wrong. If you have wrong doctrine then you will influence those around you negatively. We must act with integrity, dignity, and have wholesome speech and behavior. Let everything you say and every action you make be according to the Word of God. Let the Holy Spirit lead every action that you do.

Someone is watching you and their eternal destination could depend on whether they get a glimpse of the Word being manifested in your life or not. Make sure that you are projecting the right things.

Let us act so we wouldn’t be ashamed of ourselves, but acting and walking humbly in the Word of God as is becoming the Bride of Christ.

63-0112 - "Influence"

You know, there is so many of us, and most all of us influence somebody by the things that we do, and the way we live, and the things we say. We influence somebody. Somebody is watching your life. And then when we profess to be Christians, what type of life should we live if somebody is watching us? And your life that you live will reflect an influence on somebody. That might… It might be the… Their Eternal destination will rest upon the way that you live and the things that you do, for they watch you.
