Being an Influencer | Session 3

DATE: Sunday, 19 May 2024

‘BIBLE PASSAGES: Read online
Daniel 2:14-23  


Do you want to be an influencer? According to indeed.com, there are 5 levels of influencer in our society – from being a ‘nano-influencer’ (under10k followers) up to being a ‘mega influencer’ (over 1m followers). In a sense, we are all influencers to some degree. But how are we influencing people, and towards what? And what are we influenced by?

“Our legacy isn’t to have people remember us but rather who Jesus is. If people walk away from us, Church or an event talking about us rather than Jesus we missed the plot.” (Christy Wimber)

Each week there are TWO different sets of questions for you to use, whether you are exploring the Bible within your Connect Group, in other group settings, or simply using them on your own.

These are simple questions to provoke discussion together out of the talk (ideal if you are watching our Sunday Service online with others in your group):

1 | Was there anything that particularly helped you during the talk?

2 | Was there anything that you didn’t necessarily agree with, or found difficult to understand in the talk?

3 | As a result of the talk, what:

3a. Changes do you want to see?

3b. Truths do you need to remember?

3c. Actions do you need to take?

These are questions that are based on the talk and the surrounding themes:

  1. Who is your greatest ‘influencer’ after Jesus?
  1. What was Daniel hoping to gain in return for interpreting king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream?

  2. Was Daniel confident that God would show him the meaning of king Nebuchadnezzar’s dream?

  3. Do you notice anything about how Daniel refers to God?
  1. During her talk, Sarah quoted Christy Wimber, ‘Our legacy isn’t to have people remember us but rather who Jesus is. If people walk away from us, Church or an event talking about us rather than Jesus we have missed the plot.” What do you make of this quote?
  1. What or who do we use our influence for? 
  1. Who are you INTENTIONALLY influencing?
  1. Who are you UNINTENTIONALLY influencing? 
  1. Spend a few minutes praying about the things we allow to influence us. 


    As you explore these questions, pray for one another to deepen and develop your relationship with Jesus.
