PERSONAL Opportunities

If you can walk there, you can make a PERSONAL impact!

personal iconOne of the most humbling and challenging claims in Scripture is that we did not choose God, but He chose us. God loves you to the point that He pursued you in order to bring you into His family. He continues to love you with grace upon grace. When we recognize His supply, we reply in amazement and love.

1 John 15:16–17 says, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in My name the Father will give you. This is My command: Love each other.”

One way we do this is through loving those around us PERSONALLY. That could include the person next to you at work, the woman at the gas station, or even the neighbor kid across the street. When God prompts you with His love, are you ready and willing to step forward? He wants to bless you by using you right where you are. That’s the God we serve – amazing isn’t He?

Out of a heart of awe and gratitude, will you join Him in making an impact PERSONALLY?

So, what can you do?

There are great ways to make an impact in your neighborhood, workplace, and family. It’s as simple as building relationships, meeting tangible needs, and being available. More importantly, when God opens the door, share about what Jesus has done for you.
