"In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."-Matthew 6:9,10
Why was Jesus influential? It was one simple reason. He solved a problem in the life of every person he encountered. He allowed heaven to come into every situation.
When He met Peter he solved his fishing problem.
When Peter had a tax problem, He told him to go catch a fish and get the coin out of its mouth to pay his taxes.
When the disciples had to feed 5,000 people, He led them into solving the problem supernaturally.
When the blind man met Jesus, he was healed after putting mud on his eyes.
Influence in lives and culture can be accomplished when we solve a problem in a person's life. Culture does not care who solves their problem, they just want their problem solved. If you are the source of the solution, you will automatically gain influence as a fruit of your love and solution providing actions.
Someone once said, "People don't care what you know until they know that you care." Want to impact a life? Solve a problem they have. Bring heaven on earth in every aspect of life, then you will see God move through you.
