You have the power to change the world. Fear is the only reason you withdraw. You could be putting out fires in your world. But, out of fear, you hide your light under a bushel. Every single day, you are content to complain about the situation. While making excuses for your inability to take action. Others in your community have long accepted their fate. They no longer notice the problems. But you won’t be able to. If you cannot stop thinking and talking about it, why don’t you do something about it? Why not take on the world?
Across all of time and history, God has partnered with humans to effect great change. We remember them today for their significant contributions to society. They applied their knowledge and skills to some of history’s most difficult problems. They did not simply complain about the situation; instead, they took action and made a difference. This is the story of Bible characters such as Moses, Joshua, Gideon, and Deborah. It tells the story of those who worked to end slavery. The story of those who fought for women’s rights and established a just society.
You should take their example. Right now, you can be the salt and light of your world. It all comes down to selecting the appropriate level for your work. You could either hide your light under a bushel or place it on a hill, where it belongs. The first step is to recognise God’s will for your community. Your conviction will grow as you pray and interact with your community. Then you must be strong and courageous. Your decision to confront your world with the heavenly vision will be met with fierce resistance. However, you will be regretful if you do not use your gift for the betterment of your world.
