You don’t have go to to Haiti to change the world. You don’t have to be brilliant or wealthy or a spiritual giant. But you do have to say yes to the invitation. You have to be willing and available and you have to pay the price that comes with following Jesus because changing the world and following Jesus isn’t easy, and it doesn’t come cheap. There will be sacrifices involved–there always is.
Fundamentally the Christian faith is a call to leave everything behind, follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and join in the great mission of Christ in our world. Only then will we become completed people–people living according to God’s deepest purposes in our lives.
