Change the World


Are you changing the world, or is the world changing you?

Acts 20:15

"We sailed from there, and the next day came opposite Chios. The following day we arrived at Samos and stayed at Trogyllium. The next day we came to Miletus." NKJV

Are you changing the world, or is the world changing you? You see, the world can change you into something you don't like or want to be. It takes deliberate effort not to allow the world to change you. With God, you can go somewhere different with your life. If you partner with God, you will see yourself and the world changed. Because of those serving God and serving others, the world is not the same today as it was yesterday. Are you participating? If you are, then you are making a difference. If not, then you need to make some changes.

Matthew 25:21: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." KJV

Notice what Jesus said. He didn't say, "Well done thou good and faithful spectator," and He didn't say, "Well done thou good and faithful church critic." Start the changes today. God gives you the choice. You can live the way He created you to live, or you can live selfishly and miss out on a lot of awesome things the Lord wants to lead you in. It is your choice. No one can make the choice except you.

If God's way is the best way, let's live like that. God has shown us how we should live. So, what's it going to be? The choices we make today will shape who we are forever. Let's follow God and play a part in restoring and redeeming a fallen, broken and hurting world. Let's live to be all that God intended us to be. Let's live to see the changes that we want to see in the world. Go for it. Live for God and God will take care of the details. Trust Him to do what He said He would do. May we live to be what He created us to be, messengers of His mercy, His grace, His Truth and His love. The book of Acts doesn't really end, it's still going on. We are the next chapter in Acts. We are Acts 29.

Life Lesson: We should change the world.

Dear God, 
Thank You for loving me. Thank You for allowing me to play a part in redeeming and restoring this fallen, broken and hurting world. Lord, I do not want to be a spectator Christian. Please lead me in what Your will is for my life and give me the ears to hear what You would say. In Jesus' name, Amen.
