Have you ever been inspired by a leader whether past or present who really speaks to you? Maybe they've even recruited you to be a spokesperson for them or impacted you to the point of wanting to follow them wherever they go. I can think of a few people in history who have had this impact on individuals whether for good or bad. People like Abraham Lincoln, leading the charge against slavery. Martin Luther King Jr. fighting for equality and an end to racism. Adolf Hitler brainwashing an entire nation to embrace genocide as normal. You see, the influence an individual can have on others can be tremendous.
...But rather than focusing on all these fascinating leaders, I want to hone in on the greatest influencer in history: Jesus.
- Ron Zappia
Many people, Christian or otherwise, are interested in Jesus. He's listed as the most influential figure in history. But liking him and following him are two different things.
