Am I alone in the nagging tension and restlessness I feel with the instability of our world against the backdrop of the hope we are called to offer to the nations?
The past week I have been really into Matt Redman’s new release called “10,000 Reasons”. One of the tracks is called “We Could Change The World”.
When Jesus was launched into his three years in the public eye, his message was “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
Here are the lyrics for the chorus of “We Could Change The World”:
Yes, our God is all He says He is
Jesus in Your name we could change the world
We stand in Your love, in your power
All you say You are
Jesus, in your name we could change the world.
In order to live the change that Jesus announced 2,000 years ago, we need to recapture the vision of a kingdom that has come to invade life as we know it.
God is looking for people who are ready to embrace a faith that calls us to let go of the security of what has been and to launch out to grab the swinging trapeze coming to us.
May we soon become an uprising of ordinary people who are just wild enough to believe we can change the world!
