And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new. Revelations 21:5 ESV.
Ever great change begins when one person decides to make a difference in the life of another. Every movement begins when one person serves another. Any one act, any one word, and any one thought has the potential to change your world.
Yet potential changes nothing but the fantasy of mere dreams. Real change occurs only when work becomes focus on a specific outcome. When your chosen work aligns with your God-given gifts, and most importantly, when the Triune God champions your endeavor, then you know only time will separate your work from final completion.
James writes that faith apart from works is dead (James 2:17). That one needs to act out ones belief for faith to turn into positive results. However, those beliefs need to be grounded in the reality of Jesus Christ. Otherwise we may be guilty of stealing from Him, plagiarizing him, or even working against him.
Faith also teaches us to rely on Christ for leadership. Instead of seeking God to bless our endeavors, we seek out what God is already doing and ask if we can join Him. Most often, He will gladly share the spotlight with you. Sometimes though He has other plans and you may have to pass on the adventure. Either way, when you rely on directions from your Heavenly Father, you can be assured His Will is already accomplished. You just have to ride the wave toward the shore.
So when you live each day realizing that our Lord may give you one moment, one word, or one act which may positively influence a person’s life or even the course of human history, doesn’t that make your time and life more meaningful in your relationships and pursuits? Think about that…
