Let’s go down a different road. For the next few weeks I am going to be addressing “World Changers” in our Sunday gatherings. I don’t know about you but I believe we have more of a purpose on planet earth than to just take up space, eat, drink, breath, go through the same daily routine day in and day out and then die and be put under the ground as the crowd goes off and eats potato salad together. I believe we are here to make a difference in our world. I believe we are here to challenge the status quo. I believe we are here to push the envelope and explore uncharted horizons. And I believe we are here to leave an eternal mark on the lives of those whose lives intersect with ours.
There were some guys in the Bible that were accused of turning the world upside down. They were world changers in the earliest days of the church. The Bible says of them, “These people who have been turning the world upside down have come here also.” (Acts 17:6)
What is your desire in life? Do you want to just quietly, stealthily and inconspicuously lumber through it until you make your final exit or do you want to leave with a legacy of effectiveness, significance, value and positive impact on the lives of people who connected with your life? I might be wrong on this one but, I think the latter is what we all desire or at least most of us.
It is entirely possible that you have a barrel full of ideas and plans on how to leave a lasting difference in people’s lives. But in case you don’t, I want to at least offer a little help. Beginning this Sunday, August 17, and for the next six weeks, I will be addressing six qualities that I believe are the most important ones for us to live out if we are going to change our world rather than just take up space in it. I certainly hope you will join us if you can. If you need some more info about our location and times of gathering check out relaxedchurch.com.
Meanwhile can I get some ideas from you? I invite your response to two questions. Here they are.
1. What do you believe needs to be changed most in the world in which we live?
2. What do you think needs to be done in order to bring about those changes?
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts and ideas.
