I want to write about something that will really touch the heart of individuals today. I want my words to move mountains, change opinions, open minds and hearts.
However, all I can think about is The World Race. The World Race is a mission trip that allows people to spread God’s love across 11 countries in 11 months. Quite frankly, I am infatuated with every aspect of it. The idea that I could be able to expand my discipleship across seas and pursue people that are less fortunate than I am is absolutely amazing. If (when) I tackle this adventure, I would be submerged into rich and new culture that would provide new perspectives and appreciation for my own culture. In addition, I would get to be surrounded by like minded individuals that could help me build my faith. Above everything, my favorite idea is that I could be the first person to tell a little being about this awesome Jesus guy and his radical love for everybody and it thoroughly flips my heart around in my body and sends tears down my face when I think about it. Unfortunately, The Word Race requires at least 21 years of life, so for now I am left to stare at my map, dream, and save money.
What I am struggling with is the fact that I should be just as thrilled to spread the joy of God on the beautiful land that I am standing on right now. How can I do that? The answer to my question is generally loving and living like Jesus does. This being, accepting others without judgement, pursuing the broken people, being a leader, and overall just being a positive addition to every environment. I am interested in what kind of platform you guys use for your discipleships and what actions, thoughts, and prayers you use to enhance it, so please do share!
I hope that as you read these words, you can really meditate on the idea that through practical service and active compassion, we open the door to share the bold and true message of Christ. We do not need to travel across seas, spend a single dollar, or change a thing about ourselves to really be compassionate and open hearts to wonderful things.
So with this blog post, I probably won’t change an opinion or deeply touch your heart. But guess what, Jesus can and will, and you will go onto touch hearts of others through him. Someway, somehow, we will become strong disciples of Christ on the ground that we stand on right now. Dreams can wait, Christ is here right now and ready to use us to move others.
All of this is great news.
Much Love + Blessings,
