Change The World

Here is a simple little video. The focus is Jesus. The focus is helping the broken, the sick, and the poor. The focus is changing the world.

In one sense the video is great. It reminds us of when we were children, and we had not yet been taught to thoroughly conform. In another sense the video itself is still conventional, at least in the way we think of Jesus today.

The idea of service, of serving our neighbors, is certainly something that Jesus wants us to cherish. He wants us to love each other and to serve each other. Yet there only so many broken, sick, and poor people to go around. In fact, if we are one of those broken, sick, and poor people, we may not have much capacity to help anyone. How do we change the world then?

Perhaps we can find guidance in this verse.

Matthew 7:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

12 “In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

What do we want from people? Consider what the Bible calls the fruit of the spirit.

Galatians 5:22-23 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

The fruit of the spirit is available to everyone who asks, and everyone needs the fruit of the spirit from his or her neighbors. That is why those people who pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit and allow Jesus to act through them change the world.

  1. You’re not going to believe this, well, maybe you will. We subscribe to a service called Igniter Media, a video provider for worship and other settings. THIS was the video I used to set up the message a couple of weeks ago about Jesus fighting to restore our purpose in life…love the video! Thanks for sharing!

  2. A sincere and meaningful message of which begs the question: “Where is the Church today and where is it going?”

    Thank you, Tom, for this earthly message.

    May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless you and yours.

      1. You are correct, Tom.
        I can only say that unfortunate truth is indeed unfortunate for all…..

        May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless you and your readers, Tom. God bless you and yours.
