This past weekend I spent some time in Indianapolis at the Influence Conference. What an encouraging time with some beautiful people! This was my second year going and I was excited to be a community leader this year. It was such a nice weekend away, but I must say it’s nice to be home :)
Iphone pictures that I may have stole ;) One is my sweet friend Kristin and I and the other was taken during my workshop!
(Oh, and a little something while I was there…)
If you are ‘the light of the world, a city on a hill’…you are meant to be seen. You are meant to shine- that is the purpose. God never said to stay hidden away, kept in a secret place. No, He has called us to shine- to be bright and to be bold for His namesake. If we are living in Him and if our life is hidden in Christ, than we have the power to be an influence. We have the power in Christ to shine bright for Him. Not for our glory….not for our name, but totally and completely to bring Him glory. Isn’t that our purpose? Isn’t that why we are called to influence? It’s all about Him.
Staying hidden and not being bold will get you no where. It doesn’t bring glory to Christ. Sure, you don’t have to work very hard to stay where you are at. You won’t have to step outside of your comfort zone. But you also won’t be putting Christ on display. You are an influence to others more than you know- be a light for Him.
