Changing Our World

Turning on the radio I heard a voice singing, What the world needs now is love sweet love. It will take faith, hope and love to change the world; the greatest of these is love. Does the world see the love of God that has been shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit, or are you hanging on to unforgiveness, resentment, fear and bitterness? Jesus gave New Testament belivers a new commandment: Love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another (Jo 13:34-35). When believers begin loving as Jesus loves, we will change our world. It may be one person at a time, or you may be sent to other nations to proclaim the gospel. Whatever you do let it be done as a true representative of Jesus. Love is your identification badge!

Father, Your Spirit has anointed us to change our world! Help us to be imitators of You, and bring good news to the poor, and healing to the brokenhearted. Give us loving hearts so we will share Your love bringing freedom to those in bondage. We make it our goal to bring a refreshing to others, and we are refreshed! In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
