Perspectives on a Ministry of Influence

By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

- John 15:8 (NKJV)

We are called to impact lives through what we do for others based on the gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ. The good news of the gospel message is Jesus Christ.

Ministry is a demonstration of action-oriented faith when people utilize their spiritual gifts to serve one another. Our service in ministry is about meeting needs and bringing glory to God the Father. The bottom line of our ministry actions is the application of biblical principles and precepts.

The goal of ministry is to produce fruit. This is the result of faith and work combined. By putting biblical principles into practice, our faith is exercised. Faith leads us into action. Our actions are the visible display and demonstration of our faith before the eyes of the world on a daily basis.

Ministry is about glorifying God. In order to glorify God, we are expected to bear fruit. We are considered productive as Christians if we have been fruitful. We become fruitful in our lives through both our attitudes and actions that reflect and resemble Christ. By living our lives at the standard set by Christ, we live at a standard above the world. It is through our daily living that we will be able to impact and influence life bound for change and repentance.

Meeting people where they are does not mean leaving them there
