What can you do to change the world?  Frequently in the church we speak about changing the world.  We say things like, “God can use you to change the world!”  But can you really do it?  And if you can change the world it’s probably going to be really difficult right?  After all, our world has over seven billion people living on its surface at any one time.  The circumference of the earth is almost 25,000 miles.  And if you put the world on a scale it would weigh about 13,169,533,693,875,800,000,000,000 pounds.  The world is a big place, with lots of people, and lots of space so how can you change the world?  Believe it or not I think it is possible for you to change the world and it may not be as hard as you think.  Let me give you a few quick things you can do to change the world.

  1. Read and memorize scripture every  day.  Changing the world is impossible if you try to do it without God’s help.  However if you stay in the word of God daily and commit as much of it to memory as possible, you will be able to stay in the will of God and that is very important if you want to change the world.
  2. Pray every day.  And don’t just pray for what you want or what you are thankful for.  Talk to God like you would a friend.  Prayer is not your avenue to get what you want, it’s God’s avenue to direct you to what He wants.  When you get that put in the right perspective your prayer life will become amazing and you will be on your way to changing the world.
  3. Share the gospel every day. Changing the world requires that we reach the world one life at a time.  You may never have a chance to address all seven billion people on earth with the good news of Jesus but in your lifetime it is plausible to think that you could influence tens or hundreds of thousands of people with the Gospel if you will only share the good news.
  4. Pursue your passion every day- God frequently causes people to be passionate about the areas in which he has gifted them to serve.  Pursue that passion you possess in your heart, and allow God to use it as a platform for worldwide change.  Your passion seems small in your eyes but God often uses the smallest things and people to make the biggest impact.
  5. Leave a legacy every day.  Disciple your children and grandchildren.  Make sure they read and memorize scripture, pray, share the gospel, and pursue their passions.  This is not only Biblical, but it also multiplies your effort in changing the world.  And if the task is not completed before you depart and go to be with Jesus at least the mission for change will continue long after you are gone.

Changing the world is a huge task, but it is not impossible.  If every believer practiced the five things mentioned above imagine the impact that the world would experience by the end of this year, end of this decade, or end of the century. I can’t do your part to change the world but I am committed to doing mine.  Will you join me?
