The Ripple Effect

April 12, 2019


        Recent surveys of Christian leaders reveal that a startling percentage of them are not convinced they are having any real impact on anyone.  This is particularly regrettable because making a difference is the very reason most Christian leaders go into the ministry.


        A Sunday school teacher named Edward Kimball wasn’t always sure his life had much consequence.  In 1858, he at least was able to lead a shoe clerk to Christ.  The clerk, Dwight L. Moody, became an evangelist, and in 1879 Moody awakened an evangelistic zeal in the heart of F.B. Meyer, the pastor of a small church in New England.  Meyer, preaching on a college campus, won a student named J. Wilbur Chapman to Christ.


        While Chapman was engaged in YMCA work, he employed a former baseball player named Billy Sunday to help with evangelistic meetings.  Sunday held a series of services in the Charlotte, N.C. area, and a group of local men were so enthused by the meetings, that they planned another campaign, this time they brought preacher Mordecai F. Ham to town.


        During one of his meetings, a young man named Billy Graham yielded his life to Christ.  Since then, millions have heard the gospel though Graham’s ministry.  Kimball had started quite a ripple effect!  So can you.


        In fact, you’re probably already making a greater impact than you think!
