Be the change
When Jesus called individuals to follow Him, He had more than just that individual in mind. He also had in mind the many
people who would be impacted by the change in that one follower. His plan was to change his disciples, so that they could be the agents of
change for others! When Jesus called fishermen to be his disciples, he told them, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." Jesus
promised to turn their focus from the material to the spiritual, from the temporal to the eternal. Jesus intends to turn our attention from
investing our lives in things, to investing our lives in people! To a construction worker He might say, 'Follow me and I will make you a builder
of the kingdom of God!' To a food service worker He might say, 'Follow me and I will use you to serve spiritual food that results in eternal life.'
To a fireman He might say, 'Follow me and I will use you to save people from the fires of hell.' To a financial planner He might say, 'Follow me and you
will show people how to store up treasures in heaven!' His plan is to change us, and to use us to share the love of Christ with a lost world and teach the
truth of Scripture to those who believe. Let’s live in the grace of Jesus today, and be the change He uses to impact the lives of others!
Love in Christ,
