Certainly God intends for us, as Christians, to make an eternal impact ... to affect other people's lives in ways that draw them closer to the Lord, bringing glory to God.

Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matt. 5:16)
 
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. (Matt. 6:20)

We don't have to be in full-time ministry to make an eternal difference. God will use us right where we are like in the workplace, in our home, and in our neighborhood.
 
We don't have to be in children or youth ministry to impact the next generation. Through both word and deed, parents and grandparents can "tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done" (Ps. 78:4), leaving for them a positive legacy.
 
For our lives to truly make a difference, we need to be wise in how we use our time so we "make the most of every opportunity" (Col. 4:5; Eph. 5:15-17). Praise God we have the Holy Spirit to develop within us the qualities we need to maintain the right priorities and perspective that will enable us to manage our time in ways that count for eternity. We just need to yield to His work in our lives "for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose" (Phil. 2:13).

Praying God uses you in special ways,
