Influence (Jeremiah 15:19)

Jeremiah is told by our Lord to be a person of influence and not a person easily influenced. “You must influence them; and do not let them influence you.” Oh Lord, it is difficult sometimes to be true to speak what you command to people hurting and hopeless and not let their fragile spirits soften the truths you call us to say to them. Let alone being influenced by the technology, the culture, the way of life of our people. Give your saints on earth the power to resist the temptation to water down, to soften the edges of your truth and to proclaim your message to a people on the verge of judgment. May we a make more sacred waves then ride the secular ones for Your glory. Amen.
