Godly Influence

The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother, Simon, and tell him, we have found the Messiah (which means the Christ).  John 1:41

   Isn't it amazing how twelve ordinary men with no formal educational training or particular speaking skills could change the world through their godly influence?

   Andrew, little spoken of in the gospels, used his influence to introduce his brother, Simon, to the Messiah.  It was the same Andrew who brought the little lad with five loaves and two small fish to Jesus.  Andrew's influence paved the way for the ultimate preaching of Peter on the day of Pentecost when 3,000 believed and were baptized.

   Little do we realize the effect we have on those around us.  Think about the tremendous potential for changing the course of world history through the influence of a godly believer.

   Are you prepared to be an influence for good?  Others are watching!  What will they hear coming from your lips?  What will they see as they watch your actions?  Will your influence be that of an Andrew, a Philip, a Simon Peter, or a modern Christian writer?

Thought for the Day: God is looking for godly people to mold today's society.
