Summer Series: Uplifting Influence


Last night was week two of our Summer Series. Jim Lampley who serves as the Youth Minister at 9th Avenue Church of Christ in Haleyville, Al was the guest speaker. His topic was: Uplifting Influence. Below are the notes I took on my iPad as he spoke.

Everyone around us including us have influence.

Influencing the world seems to great a task, how can I change the world?
Start Small and Change those around us by our actions.

World changers go against the crowd.
Jesus the Christ is the supreme example.
We remember those who stand out because they are different.

Christ’s Message – Stand Out

Mat 5:13-16

Salt?
Preservation
Taste-how can salt be good if it has no taste.
We are to flavor the world

Light?
Light is essential for life.
Light guides.
One light makes a difference in the dark.

Can we make a difference? How?
Four things we need

It is easy to stand for nothing and go along with the crowd.
