People of Influence
By: Rick Boxx
March 27, 2013
The Barna Group discovered that 64% of people surveyed believe that professional athletes have more influence in society than professional faith leaders. These athletes are perceived to have more opportunity to impact the culture than religious leaders.
Whether or not you’re a professional athlete, those who are in the workplace often have more influence, and greater evangelistic opportunities, than pastors and other faith leaders.
John the Baptist was known far and wide in his day. In John1 we read, “He came as a witness to testifyconcerning that light, so that through him all men might believe.”
Just like John the Baptist, God has given each of us a place of influence, some more than others. Our job is to testify concerning the God we serve so that others might believe.
