Making a Difference

Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” -Genesis 1:28

Nothing on this earth is more valuable than you! No other form of earthly life plays such a role as mankind. The world literally stands or falls on the actions of men. Only man has the power to deplete the earth’s resources and pollute its atmosphere. The sin of one man, Adam, corrupted the world (Gen. 6:12, 13). 

In contrast, the obedience of one Man, Jesus Christ, brought justification and righteousness to many (Rom. 5:18, 19). If we, as His redeemed, were to walk perfectly in that justification and righteousness, we could cause the world to bloom and blossom! God wants to reveal His truth and beauty to the world through redeemed mankind.  

All of us as believers have strategic significance in our own circles of influence, and we can maximize the impact of good around us and encourage others to do the same. We can and will make a difference in our world by the power of the One who lives in us.
