I declare in the name of Jesus God is in my here and now. I declare His name to those in my sphere of influence. I proclaim the goodness of Jesus to the lost and rebellious. My eyes are open. This is my time!
JOIN THE FIGHT
I love being the good guy. I really do. I like taking the Gospel to prison to people everyone wants to forget. I like freeing little girls from the horrors of sex trafficking and letting them know nobody is ever going to hurt them again.
No trash dump, slum or ghetto is too disgusting or ugly for me. Why? Because I carry the weapon of God’s goodness wherever I go, and I know that good overcomes evil.
We are not afraid of darkness because it is inferior to the light within us. At first, the work of light and goodness is always in the midst of a huge mess. But here’s the good news. That means Christ is in the midst of us!
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. – Matthew 18:20
And you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none other; and my people shall never be ashamed. – Joel 2:27
For I, says the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. – Zechariah 2:5
So there Jesus is, in the midst of the mess called you and I. And there we go as His people into the ditches of this world with the mandate and the mission to change things.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO GRASP YOUR MANDATE AND MISSION TO SPREAD GOODNESS ACROSS THIS WORLD. DON’T WAIT FOR A MISSION TRIP. GET DIRTY FOR GOD’S GOODNESS IN YOUR HOME, SCHOOL, WORKPLACE, NEIGHBORHOOD OR CITY.
