Faith Is A Powerful Sphere Of Influence That Can Change Lives

Your sphere of faith will ripple out to touch people.

Your sphere of faith will ripple out to touch people.

When your faith grows, your influence of faith grows. Let me explain. Peter started out as a man who wanted to know the things of God. That’s why he followed Jesus around. He wasn’t casual about his interest. He left his business and followed Jesus for something like three years. But Peter still had a lot to learn. His failure when Jesus was arrested shows how little faith he actually had, because he just didn’t understand what God was doing.

Jump forward to after the Resurrection, and Peter is filled with the Holy Spirit. Now he really understands God’s plan, so His faith is massive. Thus they even carried the sick out into the streets, and put them on cots and pallets, so that when Peter came by at least his shadow would fall on some of them. (Acts 5:15)

His shadow healed people! His sphere of faith extended out to literally touch people and change their lives.

What did Peter have that you don’t? Faith. He trusted that God is who He says He is. He recognized the authority in Jesus to save, heal, and deliver. But Peter wasn’t special. He was as fallible as anyone. So if he could do it, so can you.

Practice your faith. Your sphere of influence will grow and grow and grow. You too can be a powerful agent of the kingdom.
