The Spirit of Being an Authentic Influencer

Authentic Influencer The Barnabas Way of Shaping Lives for Jesus | Jonathan Murphy

You may feel like an ordinary believer, but God has a knack of using ordinary people to accomplish His extraordinary purposes. Authentic Influencer encourages you to walk with Barnabas, learn from God, and shape the world for Jesus Christ — one life at a time.

God's approach to influencing the world is through His people. People shape people. And yet, many of God's people spectate from the sidelines unsure of what to do. Authentic Influencer is rooted in principles emerging from the life of God's choice example in the Scriptures—a man called Barnabas—rather than recycled quotes from corporate leadership works.

Every follower of Jesus can be inspired, instructed, and mobilized to influence the world from right where they are. In fact, it is everyday believers—not just "professional" Christians such as pastors, church leaders, authors, and others—who are specifically tasked by Jesus Himself to bring godly influence to the world. We are all His agents of change, be it shaping one person or a thousand.

One of the most impactful takeaways I gained from Authentic Influencer was an action step from one of the first "Food for Thought" exercises following the end of the Introduction. "Humans are malleable. We are made of clay. Spend some time reflecting on how you became the person you are today. Make a list of the influences, both positive and negative (and both subtle or direct), that form human heart (including yours)." This is an epic starting point!

Our ability to make an authentically positive impact on the world we live in by making positive changes in our own lives best serves humanity. Reading the well-developed framework of Authentic Influencer, I was informed and inspired to use my faith to influence not only my spiritual life, but also the lives of those I am able to connect with directly and indirectly.
