A person influenced by Christ, is one who moves others onto Christ/God’s agenda.

Before we can influence others toward Christ /godliness,

we ourselves must be under Christ/God’s influence—

Seeking Christ/God’s direction,

Obeying His impulses

And being where we’re supposed to be so God can use us.

Note: If you are moving toward God, someone is probably following you.


A Christ/godly influence Person:

  1. Encourages a Closer Walk with God

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” Psalm 1:1–3

  • Encourage wise choices—encourage ladies to seek godly counsel, and be faithful to the Lord and church.
  • Encourage “God-ward” thinking—remind others of God’s love; weave Christ /godly topics into conversations.
  • Encourage Bible study and prayer.

They Show Love

Being Deeply loved by someone gives you strength

Loving someone deeply gives you courage

have empathy and sympathy?

When you say you will pray for someone, don’t fail to do it!

Influence grows when we show compassion. We must model compassion

Luke 10:37, “And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.”

Genuine compassion powerfully affects

those who receive it,

those who give it,

those who observe it.

  1. Is Trustworthy

Keep confidence.

Be careful about sharing news.

Be careful not to gossip.

Repeating facts can lead to gossip (James 3:6; Proverbs 26:20–22).

  • Gossip = habitually retelling behind the scenes information
  • Gossip = idle talk about others, regardless of fact
  • Gossip = saying something about someone that you know he/she wouldn’t want said—regardless of whether or not it is true

Be intensely loyal, and always give others the benefit of the doubt.

“Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” Ephesians 4:29

  • In conversation = lifestyle

“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;” Philippians 1:27

16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
