This morning during a Bible study with other guys from our church I reflected on a time I had taken on a new job at a global health advocacy group. When I first started I was struck by this idea: if I could form a team of 50 people who were wholeheartedly committed to the same thing, we could change the world.
While we had a great team, for some of us it was just a job. The work was not our undying passion. Change was still made, with great results, but my world-changing hopes were left for another day.
Now I find myself in the realm of my undying passion. To that end I pondered out loud what it would be like if 80 people (our small church) were all wholeheartedly committed to the same thing. Namely, renewal and revival. More of God’s presence, repentance and the experience of his grace. People deeply hungry for more of Jesus.
That type of mission has and will change the world. I long for it. I hope you do too.
