In geopolitical terms, a territory marks the sphere of influence of a ruler or nation. When Jabez asks God to enlarge his territory, he isn’t simply asking for more land – he’s asking God to grow his influence. This desire to do more good comes from God. As Christians, we should be asking God to increase the number of people that we can influence for Christ. The same is true for the church. Our desire should be to spread the gospel of Jesus and to extend the borders of his kingdom.
