Discovering Spiritual Truths & Celebrating God's Grace in the Every Day Happenings of Life.
An online article in the town I live, speaking of an effort to prevent a ‘mega-warehouse’ from building and moving into the community, starts off with this statement—"Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world.” As I continue to think about the future of our ministry here at King of Kings, this statement rings loud and true. How can we bless our community? What needs can we help meet? How can we make a difference? How do we fruitfully share the Gospel of Jesus?
It is easy to think, what difference can a small church make? We can fall into the dangerous, evil trap of comparing our worth to the bigger churches around us. (And believe me, I have!) But the Bible wonderfully reminds us that the Church started off as only a small group of Jesus’ followers. Yet from that small group, the church grew. As the Gospel was shared, God powerfully blessed the efforts of these earliest followers. This is still the way God works. Let us be the salt and light that we heard Jesus speak of this past Sunday--His modern-day, divine difference-makers! Don’t hide your Christian life. Let it shine. Let the world know what gives you joy, let them hear about the One who gives you hope. The saving gospel, the good news of Christ, isn’t just good for you. It’s good for everybody. And when we all embrace this renewed life and this blessed calling together, no matter how small our group may be, God will bear fruit. He will change the world!
“Let your love for God change the world, but never let the world change your love for God.”
