This weeks question was very intriguing and it got me thinking a great deal.
"What does it mean to you to have made a difference in this world? What are you doing to achieve that change, and how has it been made possible?"
Making a difference in the world. Feels like a loaded question to me, but a very good loaded question. Let me just dive in.
For me to make a difference in this world isn't JUST about going once to feed the homeless or leading a kids camp or donating items to the Salvation Army. These are all incredible things and greatly needed in this world, but for me to make a difference, I must share the good news of the gospel. All these other acts/works come out of knowing the Almighty and his outpouring of love on us to pour onto others.
Matthew 28:19 " Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
I want to share Christ through my blog, through the relationships I have built in my community and for the prayers that surround those who are called out in the field. Pouring into others lives, investing in them and sharing the gospel with them is the most important thing we can do.
Knowing Christ compels me to do works for Him and my work should not be a reflection of me, but Him.
