Influence is implemented in many ways, but I believe its impact on people is three stages. The first one is motivation; second one is inspiration and the third is impartation. These are the 3 depths of influence. And the aim of leaders is to attempt to reach the third level, Impartation (I will share on these in the days to come).
We had a powerful IMPACT INITIATIVE service yesterday. I believe all three stages of influence were present. But only the Lord knows who reached which one.
Although I’m a man of faith, I still carry certain fears. One of them is the fear that the effort placed on influencing people and communicating the vision fell short and only reached the level of motivation. Don’t get me wrong, motivation is great, but unfortunately, it only lasts 72 hours. It’s only the beginning for change.
The goal is impartation…
So, as leaders and a followers – let your motivation become inspiration that leads to an impartation. That was and is my prayer for Impact Church during this time of IMPACT INITIATIVE!
