“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you” (Romans 12:1-2, The Message)
If you allow God to change you, you will change the world around you. If you change how you think then you will change how you feel and what actions you take. And so the world around you will change. Not only because you are now viewing your environment through new lenses of thoughts, emotions and hearts but also because the change within can allow you to take action in ways you wouldn’t have – or maybe even have thought about. For me that inner, within, inside out change must come from Christ. New lenses from Christ's perspectives.
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
