If you have a vision for the betterment of your world. You must commit to put in the work required for you to reach your world. Jesus was clear about the scope of his earthly ministry, saying, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 15:24 ESV). And he went all out to ensure that he reached everyone within his world. You need to gain clarity around the scope of the world you want to influence. Will you light up your town, a larger city, your country or your industry?
There is a lot to learn from the way citizens of the USA take responsibility for the world. They are always willing to reach the whole world with their ideas, products and services. When they invented the Internet for example, they recognised its ability to change the world. And they did not rest until those ideas and solutions were made available everywhere in the world. You know the world would be worse, if the Internet was never exported to the nations of the world and confined to the USA. Your ideas can have a similar effect on the world. Be brave enough to push them globally.
Jesus noted that people do not light a lamp and put it under a basket. If you are the salt and light of your world, your goal is to find a vantage point from which you can reach your world. You must be conscious of the need to reach everyone within your world. You need to map out your world and draw up a plan to reach it. Your message, your products and services must reach your world. Do not be content to labour for daily bread and call it a day. Be clear about the impact your work can have in your world and commit to do it.
