Struggle Bus – “I’m Struggling with My Influence”
We exist for the glory of God and for the good of our neighbors.
Found people find people.
Evangelism – pointing people to Jesus.
John 1:35-42 (The Voice) The day after, John saw Him again as he was visiting with two of his disciples. As Jesus walked by, he announced again: John the Baptist: Do you see Him? This man is the Lamb of God, God’s sacrifice to cleanse our sins.
At that moment, the two disciples began to follow Jesus, who turned back to them, saying: Jesus: What is it that you want?
Two Disciples: We’d like to know where You are staying. Teacher, may we remain at Your side today?
Jesus: Come and see. Follow Me, and we will camp together. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon when they met Jesus. They came and saw where He was staying, but they got more than they imagined. They remained with Him the rest of the day and followed Him for the rest of their lives. One of these new disciples, Andrew, rushed to find his brother Simon and tell him they had found the One who is promised, God’s Anoint-ed who will heal the world. As Andrew approached with Simon, Jesus looked into him.
Jesus: Your name is Simon, and your father is called John. But from this day forward you will be known as Peter, the rock.

How do we leverage our influence for Jesus?
- Invest in those around you
- Tell what you know
The greater your efforts, the greater your expectancy.
We can be history or we can make history.
