“Picture a different world. Imagine one in which 2 billion Christ-Followers embrace this gospel – the w”hole” gospel – each doing a part by placing his or her piece into the puzzle and completing God’s stunning vision of a reclaimed and redeemed world – the Kingdom of God among us.
Visualize armies of compassion stationed in every corner of our world, doing small things with great love. Imagine the change. Might the world take notice? Would they ask new questions?
Who are these people so motivated by love?
Where did they come from?
Why do they sacrifice so to help those the rest of the world has forgotten?
Where do they find their strength?
Who is this God they serve?
And most important, Can we serve Him too?
Can you imagine this different vision for our world?
Can you glimpse just now what God longs to see?
