Glory Seed Devotional’s 2018 Experiencing Jesus, the Prelude to Life
A world of changers just like you, just like me…
How many people does it take to change the world?
And that ONE is YOU!
There’s a 99.999999% chance when you wake up tomorrow you name, and picture will not appear in newspapers and television sets all over the world. But your life will still have had an impact on the world and it will be changed even if that change is like a drop of water into an ocean. Your greatest gift to a world in chaos and turmoil is YOU. A smile, a hug, a few encouraging words and suddenly the world of TWO (or more) has been changed. There are even times when not a word need be spoken just your compassionate presence will make a difference.
I have a little secret to share with you. But when I tell you you’ll no doubt say, “That’s no secret I’ve known that for a long time.” You are not a world of ONE! While you are one person you have not lived your life alone you have your family, you have your friends, you even have your enemies, you have a history with the world at large, and more importantly you have your relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
When astronauts look at the earth from space they see the entire earth but when God looks at the earth from eternity he sees YOU! While you think you’re only one person reaching out into a big world you are not ONE but many and the many are your constant companions encouraging and empowering you to make a difference. Jesus in chapter 6 of Luke tells us how WE can make a difference in the world, “Give, and it will be given to you; a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over—will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”” (Luke 6:38)
One last thought if you as ONE change my life and if I as ONE change another life of ONE and that ONE changes the life of another ONE and that process continues before long it’s not just a world of ONE that is changed but an ENTIRE world of ONE’s! And just think all that started with ONE – YOU!
“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” (John 14:6)
