There are 328 million people in the United States, and I am just one person, you are just one person. When you read or watch the news and see all the crazy stuff going on, and Oregon one of the craziest it is very easy to feel like a victim. A victim because you didn’t cause what is happening to happen, and you don’t have any way to change or stop much of anything. It is like being in a big flood of water with a life jacket on being carried away by the water trying hard to keep your head up out of the water with no clue where you are being washed away to.
Jesus was one man , and He accomplished a lot with His life, with most of it being in just three years.
John 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.
But Jesus was God, you say, but He was living and functioning as a man, a human being,
John 14:12-14 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
This is one of the coolest passages in the Bible. I have the potential to do greater works to accomplish more that matters than Jesus Himself. Every Christian hast potential, but very, very few do much of anything to influence their culture.
1. You have to believe you can. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed you can move mountains. The best way to grow strong in faith is to read your Bible every day, more than a couple of verses. Memorize and meditate on key Bible verses. I have memorized John 14:12-14 and often fall asleep going over it in my mind.
2. Pray a lot for and about every injustice you see or hear about. Notice the second half of John 14:12-14. “Whatever you ask in my name, that will I do!”
Luke 18:7 now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them?
Notice the phrase, “day and night, ” which means to pray a lot.
Most could very easily read their Bibles for 15 minutes and then pray for 15 minutes. That 30 minutes a day will move you into the category of being a champion for God, a Daniel, a David, an Esther.
