It’s a good saying, ” Be the change.”
Be the change the world needs!
I don’t know if the question is being asked, “what change does the world need,” but maybe it should be.
If I answer the question just for myself today, then I would have to say, “Overall, what the world needs most now is truth. “
The change most needed is for the true nature of Jesus to operate in each of us.
We need true relationship with the Father who honor’s the son, saying ” I commit all judgement unto the son,to which the son returns honor to his father and says, ” the son can do nothing of himself.”
(John 5:19-23 for more)
We need to be of those, who have the nature, and relationship of Jesus.
We need to be in true partnership with God to go to the next level, which is true ownership!
True ownership means to me that we rule our own lives well, own house well, and own our own mistakes first.
Rather being focused on pointing out the mistakes of others, we could be the change, through showing honor to God as we commit judgement to the Son.
The phrase, ‘get off your high horse applies here concerning judgement.’
I have heard that, ‘ though we may prepare the horse for battle, God prepares the victory.’
We need to be the change by being trained in righteousness through the exercise of our faith, and the learning of trust in God.
We truly can do nothing without God. He knows that, and when we know that, he invites us into partnership and gives us a desire to be servant leaders in the household of God.
Can we like be the change?
We can , but only if , we imitate Jesus. In doing that our focus will change and we will make of ourselves, ‘no reputation.’
That doesn’t mean we don’t have plans, or that we don’t practice authority over life, or that we don’t help guide people.
It means to me that’s we don’t set the agenda in other people lives.
We don’t seek to be the Lord of anyone’s live but our own.
We can’t change or control other peoples lives.
We can only be the change by being the example.
The example of servanthood. We have a servant leader in Jesus.
Being like him is a good work to desire. Being a elder of faith is good goal.
But the best elders have learned to exercise faith by waiting on God’s nature to form in them.
They best example is faithfulness through partnership, because we first experience God’s faithfulness in relationship.
The desire to hear: “Well done my good and faithful servant,” from God’s throne, should be foremost.
” Well said my good and faithful scholars,” may be more about pedestals we build trying to please man.
Oof. Right to the gut.
Because as I seek to influence others for the kingdom of God, as mother, wife, sister, writer, coach, I often have to step up on a platform. ( I am only 5ft. 2 in stature) but may I always remember to climb up to see Jesus, and for others to see Jesus, not to see me!
My prayer is that I know and remember, I am a recipient of His mercy and grace, as He gave his life for me as a ransom!
May I desire his affirmation over me, rather than affirmations of others.
Just thoughts today as I examine the true nature of being the change.
Prayer: Lord help me to be the change!
