3 Ways You Can Impact Eternity Today

You may not realize it, but you can literally impact eternity this very day!

It’s true. You can impact eternity today. It depends on your thinking and your actions.

Start with your thoughts.

Instead of thinking that you are unable to accomplish something extraordinary for the glory of God, replace the thought with the truth that the living God has made His home inside of your heart!

And if the Creator God is in you, what couldn’t you do? Remember Philippians 4:13? “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Got that?

Now the actions.

I’m talking about the actions of evangelism and discipleship. Check it out:

  • Share the gospel with someone.
  • Don’t leave them alone.
  • Inspire them to share the gospel with someone.

Share the gospel. Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead. Believing in Jesus alone saves for…eternity. Visit www.ACT111.org to learn how.

Don’t leave that person alone! If the one with whom you share the gospel trusts in Jesus, don’t leave him alone. The worst thing to do to a new believer is to let him go.

I know, I know. If you shared with a stranger on the airplane, and you’ll never see him again this side of heaven, then there’s not much you can do. Except to get his Facebook name, email, and find him a church where he lives.

What I’m emphasizing is to make sure that the new believer is surrounded by Christians who can mentor him, love him, nurture him, and so forth. I think you get the idea. Don’t leave him alone.

Inspire him to share the gospel with someone. That’s right! If he has trusted Jesus as his Savior, then he’s ready to share this with someone else. Sometimes new believers are discouraged to evangelize by being told that they aren’t ready. What I love about the new Christian is his zeal–his enthusiasm for the gospel!

The combination of the knowledge of and a zeal for the gospel, this new believer is primed and pumped to take this gospel to his lost friends and family. Inspire him to go!

These 3 things must be a continual process for every local church. Communities should be changing because Christians in local churches are doing this.

And doing this impacts eternity. Forever.

Question: What are your thoughts about these 3 points?
