“How We Influence Others!

Matthew 5:1-16, verses 13-16 text.

We must see clearly ourselves before we can be an influence on others. How?

  1. Acknowledge all sin.
  2. Turn away from your sin.
  3. Ask Christ to forgive you.
  4. Yield every part of your life to Christ.
  5. Look for Him in your daily circumstances.

Someone said, “A pure heart enables us to see God in everything.”

I. WE INFLUENCE OTHERS BY OUR WALK.

  1. It is a walk of LOVE

Ephesians 5:1-2, “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

Ephesians 3:17-19, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”

    2. It is a walk of FELLOWSHIP

Ephesians 5:8,11-12, “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.”

Philippians 3:10, “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.”
