One of the top priorities of a Man of Impact is leveraging your professional calling to point others to Christ – and country music singer Aaron Watson provides us with a great example of doing just that.
What I love about this clip from an interview Aaron did with Fox News is how he makes it crystal clear that his faith in Jesus and desire to impact others for eternity is his top priority – and the foundation for everything else he does in his personal and family life and in his music career. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
“It’s more important that people know that I am a Christian before they know that I am a country singer. I mean, there’s nothing more important than my faith, and as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that God’s given me a great opportunity every night when I get on that stage to let my light shine, to have a positive influence on the crowd, and to let them know what Jesus has done for me and my family.”
While by his own admission he is not perfect and needs God’s grace as much as anyone else, congratulations to Aaron for being bold in sharing his faith and for effectively using his music career as a platform for ministry – two priorities we treasure here at Man of Impact. Enjoy being encouraged, and hopefully inspired to be bold in your witness wherever God takes you.
