I donít know if you have noticed, but in the world there is a never-ending cycle. A baby is born, grows up and goes to school. He learns, and moves up in grades. When he is old enough he gets a part time job, in order to make money.† He eventually graduates from high school, and than enters into college or university. He spends years there, often racking up debt, in order to pursue his chosen career. He eventually graduates and then seeks a job in his field. A job that exists so someone else can make money and to keep the economy going. He works hard to pay off his school debts, his mortgage, and his car, and to support his wife and children. He slowly works his way up the company until, one day, he retires and sits at home.† Finally, he dies and is put in the ground, in a plot of land, that is owned by someone else. But along the way he has a daughter, who he put through school, so she could go to college, to get a career, to eat, and have a roof to lie under. All so she could have a bright future.
Do you see how everything runs in a self-regenerating circle? Get up, eat, school, work, come home, eat, go to sleep, repeat. And this circle runs so well, that often we donít even realize that we are caught in it.
I am not saying that school, or going to work is bad, but I dare pose the question, ďwhat are you doing to make a difference?Ē I don’t just mean a momentary difference, but an eternal difference. How are you building the kingdom of God? You see society impresses upon us that we can only make a real difference when we are ďall grown upĒ and have a good paying job. That until then we are ďjust kids.Ē But by the time we even get to that point, we are so busy we donít have time for anything else, and we get caught in that cycle. I am here to tell you differently, that you can make a difference. You donít have to be ďall grown upĒ to make a difference. You donít have to be out of high school, or out of college. You donít have to be old enough, smart enough, or even good enough. All you need is Jesus, the gifts He has given you, and a little motivation.
Think for a moment. Where has God truly gifted you? Are you a singer, a painter,† a writer,† a speaker,† a graphic designer, or a video editor? I do not know what your gifts are, but I do know you were given them for a greater purpose. For something that will not only change the world but expand the Kingdom of God. Because that is what we were called to do isnít it? Did not Jesus say, seek first the kingdom of God? To make a difference that will last. You are a child of God, set apart for holiness, so that you may do incredible things; and all you need is an opportunity. This is what we are here for, to empower you to make a difference, to give you the tools and encouragement to live more than a mediocre life. We are bringing passionate young Christians together, giving them a voice and embracing their talents, to change the world for Jesus. To help you Step Out, Stand Out, and Speak Out. To wage war, not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers over this present darkness. There are so many ways in which we can impact the world, expanding the kingdom of God through the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and it all starts with you, and your talents.
We want to change the nation for the name of Jesus. Do you want to be a part of it?
