In How to Be the Best Influencer, Kevin Richard delves into the power of influence as seen in the biblical account of Esther and Mordecai's exile in the Persian Kingdom.
When the wicked Haman plots to exterminate all Jews, Mordecai implores Esther to use her own influence to save her people. At the risk of her own life, Esther approaches the king, ultimately exposing Haman's scheme and saving her people.
Be sure to follow along in Esther 4:13-17.
As a follow-up to Kevin's sermon, spend a minute asking yourself the following questions:
You need someone in your life to remind you that God is sovereign, to remind you that God's hand is in your life and that God works all things for good to those that are called according to His purpose and that love Him, you need someone to influence in your life. But folks, if your main religious influence is social media, TV, the Internet, it's just not going to work. You've got to have the influence of the scripture in your life. You've got to have somebody to walk alongside of you that when you stumble, they can lift you up and say, "Hey, this is what the word of God says..." You need that in your life. You are not meant to walk life alone.
