Yesterday in all our congregations we continued with our “Way of Life” series, and the message was “Living to change the world.” The premise for this way of life is that “Having a vision and commitment for being an agent of change for good in the world is an essential ingredient of a life well and fully lived.”
Jesus gave those who decided to follow Him a massive mandate which included “the world” – It’s challenging, but so fulfilling and rewarding! As C.S. Lewis said: “If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity” As always you can get the downloads at www.everynation.co.uk/media.
For an example of what some of our Every Nation London world changers are up to, and what you are supporting with your finances, check out this update from Daz & Lisa Muir serving with Tim & Maz Walker at the Thembalitsha Village of Hope in Grabow, South Africa – http://themuirsatthevillageofhope.blogspot.com/
And a final thought via a quote from Theodore Roosevelt: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
Come on, Lets live to change the world!
