What have you done for this world?
Abraham, Moses, Ruth, Isaiah, Esther, Peter, Mary Magdalene, Paul, Jesus. All of these characters from our bible had a profound impact on their communities. They changed their own lives and the lives of those around them. Many of them even died for their faith. How then can we measure up to their example? I never feel like I can live up to the example that they have set. How can I have an impact like these amazing people? Then I remember who was at the center of all of their lives. Paul writes to the church in Philippi, “God is the one who enables you both to want and to actually live out his good purposes.” So, it isn’t all on me? What a relief! It is through my continued relationship with God that I become equipped to have an impact in this world.
