(Shine God’s Light To Your Sphere Of Contact)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “You are like light for the whole world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bowl; instead it is put on the lampstand, where it gives light for everyone in the house.” (Matthew 5:14-15 GNB)
As a child of God, you ought to always think of what you can do to make the world a better place. Success is making the world around you better than you met it. Some only think of what others can do for them, not realising they’re debtors to the world—they owe the world the investment of their personality. Always, ask yourself, “What can I do to help?” “How can I contribute to the development of my world?” That’s the mentality of a champion!
The world needs visionaries: young men and women who will step out from the crowd, find a need, and reach out to meet that need. That’s one of the principles of success—when you’re challenged to make things better than the way you met them. Instead of being the one asking for help and waiting for others to give it to you, you should become the helper! Become the one to meet other people’s needs. Be the blesser and the giver, for that’s your calling.
Thus, beginning with your sphere of contact, do something to improve your world. It begins with being passionate about a God-idea and having the courage to implement that idea once you receive it from God. It doesn’t matter how small the idea may seem, once you have it, run with it. Before long, God will expand your vision and increase your inspiration! He will grant you the motivation and the ability to conceive and execute more ideas that’ll impact the world, and make it a better place.
Go Deeper: Matthew 5:16 AMPC
Speak: Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for giving me the inspiration, motivation and ability to conceive and execute divine ideas that’ll make the world a better place. I recognise that this is my season to make a difference in my world; therefore by the power of the Spirit, I’m impacting my world with the investment of my personality! Thank you for making me a blesser and a giver, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
