Topic: Use Your Grace [Monday, December 5th]
“Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.” (John 21:3 KJV)
God has given us influence in one spheres of association. In varying degrees whether you are in “leadership” or not you have a certain measure of influence. In your school, on the job, in your family, in your business circle and even your circle of friends, you have some form of influence.
What are you doing with your influence? How are you affecting the people within the confines of your sphere of association? Peter was to a very large extent was the leader of the pack. The minute he said “I go fishing, every other disciple said they were going also. Are your deeds and lifestyle affecting people positively for Christ? Or are you standing in the way of sinners preventing them from entering the kingdom of God because of yours lifestyle? Your zeal can stir up the majority.
