Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The impact he had on society is plentiful, but, as a fellow preacher, I love that Dr. King made a difference at city hall, yet he never left his calling as a pastor. That passion encourages me to use my influence as a minister wisely.
Watch the famous I Have A Dream speech again and listen for the following Scriptures. Dr. King’s dream was based on the passion King had for the Gospel of Christ.
Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together…Isaiah 40:4-5 KJV
But let justice roll down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. Amos 5:24
Pastors, how are you using your influence to shape culture?
