“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
This week we will be focusing on discipleship through your sphere of influence. Your sphere includes people who are non- or pre-Christian, cultural Christian, New Believers, Prodigals, and Committed Workers for Christ. The DBOs will present examples of using your sphere of influence to facilitate gospel conversations, administer encouragement, and actively disciple.
One year ago, a protracted 4 year long legal battle came to a conclusion. Throughout the course of those 4 years, the people that I work with were witnesses to how I conducted myself throughout this very difficult time. They saw when I got things right, when I got things wrong, when I was frustrated, when I was determined, when I worked and worked for resolution, and ultimately when it concluded.
Many of my coworkers are Christians. Some are not. Throughout this time, the legal battle provided opportunities for gospel conversations with non- or pre-Christians that otherwise would not have been there.
I now see how God used even the trials to bring about His plan. There have been and continue to be open doors for gospel conversations in my sphere of influence that did not exist before. This is one example of how I know that God is true to His Word, and works all things together for good for those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
Daily Battle Order:
Consider your sphere. Who do you know in your sphere that is a non- or pre-Christian? Write down their name, pray for them, and ask God to show you ways / provide opportunities for gospel conversations with that person this week. Your current trial just might be how God opens doors for a gospel conversation that could plant a seed that leads to an eternal change in their life through relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior!
