Reduce, Induce, Produce

God’s method of changing me in order to change the world.

Do we want to be the kind of people that God can use to impact the world for His glory? Fear and pride will keep us from this worthy goal. We must be reduced in order to be induced, so that God can produce, in and through us, that which will last forever. 

Three stages to bring about a kingdom impact:

Reduce: to bring to a lowered state–humility, teachability, and vulnerability.

Induce: to persuade, prompt, or inspire. This is transformation from the outside in–a holy endeavor brought on through surrender and repentance.

Produce: to create out of raw material. This is what God does in and through us.

Three people who demonstrate this principle: 

Gideon (Judges 6:1-2,11,12; 7:7-16) 

Reduced: 

Induced: 

Produced: 

David (1 Samuel 17:45-47)

Reduced: 

Induced: 

Produced: 

Peter (Acts 10:28-29)

Reduced: 

Induced: 

Produced: 

Conclusion: These three were reduced and humbled, induced with holy power, and they produced Kingdom results as partners with God. What does God want to do through me today?
