Only one Kingdom lasts forever.
Influence is when you have an impact on someone because of their experience with you.
God called you out of this world, to send you back in.
20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, 21 that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
The Christ we share is more important than the opinions we don’t.
Share the gospel, not your opinion.
Only one Kingdom will last forever
Reaching Priority means that we are missionaries
You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
As salt we are seasoning
What happens to you is not as important as what you believe about what happens to you
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
We are a Kingdom of good news in a world of bad news
14 You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
As light we are revealing
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
The darker the night, the brighter the light
We are designed to make an impact
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good
for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.
We are designed to be a lighthouse
14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it
under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
We are designed to reflect His Glory!
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that [a] they may see your good works and give glory to your
Father who is in heaven.
