We all wish that things were different. We know that there is something wrong in the world — sometimes, it bugs us more than we let others know. Every now and then, that urge to change things wells up within us so greatly, that we feel like we might explode. But, if we’re honest, most of us, let that feeling pass — and we head back to our busy lives.
Jesus has no intention of leaving this world in the mess that it’s in. In fact, the Bible teaches that God’s mega-plan is total redemption of the world. And here’s the place where we get a little traction: He plans to use us! To follow Jesus is to follow a guy who plans to change everything.
