3 Things You are Doing to Change the World!

If you are like me changing the world is not really on your daily “To Do” list. Most days I can barely get the toilet paper changed, keep cash in my wallet or remember to take the clothes out of the dryer, much less, change the world.

However, truth is truth and this is truth.

It is true for me and it is true for you.

God created us to change the world and we ARE changing it, one way or another.

The plan actually started BEFORE we were born. God says in Psalm 139 that he actually KNIT us together in our mother’s womb. I have never knitted but I have cross-stitched and it takes a lot of attention. One year for Christmas I cross-stitched a pillow with a personal message for each of my 3 sisters and my Mom. It took me all year to get them finished. God creates an entire human being in 9 short months. Each one with different fingerprints, hair molecules, nose tips, eye colors and toenail shapes.

The whole world may not have noticed the day you were born but at least 2 people did, your Mother and God. Both of them planned for your arrival and were all hands on deck when it occurred.

I have spent the past year preparing for a new woman’s conference that I am teaching this year called “Imagine Me…Redeemed, Restored, Renewed…Set Free”. It is based upon the truths found in Psalm 139. I have read and reread that chapter in the Bible more times now than I can even count. I have studied it from every angle and every text that I can get my hands on and I am jazzed!!

As I have prepared for my conference I have realized 3 things that are undeniably, unquestionably and UN believably God’s expectation of our perfectly planned, perfectly created lives here on earth that will change the world.

They are captured beautifully in a prayer that Jesus prayed for himself in John 17. It gets my heart every time to know that just before Jesus prays this prayer and begins his death walk, He claims boldly, “I HAVE OVERCOME (CHANGED) THE WORLD”. Right after that He is beaten, dragged around in the dirt, spit on and rejected.

None of those things rings my chimes in terms of VICTORY although I feel like I have tasted my own tiny molecular version of each experience in the past month.

As Jesus prays in this verse, He list 3 things that He accomplished that we are called to accomplish as well:

The Work (John 17:4) Jesus knew what He was created to do and He did it. We MUST know what we are called to do in order to glorify the plan of God in our lives.

The Word (John 17:14) Jesus knew God’s Word and was able to share it and explain it to others. If we don’t know God’s Word we cannot complete the Work God has created us to do.

The World (John 17:18) God sent Jesus into the WORLD to change everything He touched, every place He stepped, every person He met.

We have each been created to Change the World of our families, the world of our workplaces, the world of our neighborhoods, the world of our churches.

We have been created to Change the World and we ARE changing it–For Better or For Worse.
