As Christians, we are called to be salt and light and many other things that speak to our call to influence. Jesus, in the Great Commission, told us to “Go…” A true follower of Jesus cannot be content to seek Him only for private reasons. We seek Him so that we are empowered to reach out to a lost and hurting world and bring them to Him.

As a commissioned people (and especially if you like to write), may I encourage you to blog. It’s really easy to get started and free. I started my blog (link below) in January 2011 and have simply posted my thoughts, reflections on life, meditations on Scripture and other things of interest to me.

To show you that our world has changed and you are able to literally influence people around the world from the privacy of your living room, I want to provide you with some numbers. The following are the numbers I gathered from my blog moments ago. This isn’t anything unusual. You could be just as influential.
