Change the World
If I could change one thing about the world, it would be to take down the walls that people have put up against knowing who Jesus Christ is and what he has to do with each person. I believe most of these walls have been put up because of prejudices and misconceptions. If we actually knew that he knows exactly who each of us is, what challenges we’ve been given in our lives, and what we want, I think we would be more interested in doing what it takes to get to know him better. He wants to help us overcome our obstacles and obtain our desires. He has the power to help us do it. His one rule is that we have to do it in his way. We will get what we desire. That is the promise. We will obtain Sustainable Joy. We will have no complaints. We will be astonishingly and eternally happy. We just have to be willing to do things in his way. And we need to understand that his way is his way because he gives this promise to everyone. There are certain rules that need to be followed so that the obtainment of our joy isn’t about squashing other people’s joy.
I’m not saying we will have eternal peace alone. I’m saying we will have eternal joy. I’m not talking about sitting on a cloud all day or even on a sandy beach. Eventually, we’d get bored and look for something more to do. I’m talking about developing compatible relationships in marriage, family, and community that return sustainable joy. I’m talking about doing what we love to do and having success, productivity, and prosperity forever. And I’m talking about learning new interests, growing, and becoming at a rate that is amazingly fun! I’m not saying this will be easy. It will be hard, but it will be worth it. The success will be out of this world.
I think if people knew that this was Jesus Christ’s plan and that this is his way of governing, more people would do what it takes to develop a personal relationship with him. With more people understanding how to tap into this unbelievable resource, there would be more people living in Sustainable Joy. And with that, the world would be a much better place.
