Make a difference

Make a Difference...

You were born for this time.  Live to make a difference... 

Making a difference in the lives of people who are hurting, who have little or no hope, who believe that no one cares for them, the lonely, the misunderstood, the lost.  Our families are hurting in this Nation (Australia).  

Let's live to make a difference in our communities. How?  Get involved in your community.  Don't just talk about what's happening or what's wrong in our society.  Get involved.  

There are so many ways.  Do you even know your neighbours?  What about the parents of your children's friends?  What outreach is your church involved in?  What community groups are calling for volunteers.  Where can you be a positive voice in the community around you?  

Build relationships.  Build friendships.  Be real.  Be Honest.  Tell others about what Jesus has done in your life.  Care.  Show Compassion.

Lincoln Brewster has a song called "The Power of Your Name".  Take a moment to reflect on what this song says....

Surely children weren't made for the streets

And fathers were not made to leave

Surely this isn't how it should be

Let Your Kingdom come

Surely nations were not made for war

Or the broken meant to be ignored

Surely this just can't be what You saw

Let Your Kingdom come

Here in my heart

I will live

To carry Your compassion

To love a world that's broken

To be Your hands and feet

I will give

With the life that I've been given

And go beyond religion

To see the world be changed

By the power of Your name

Surely life wasn't made to regret

And the lost were not made to forget

Surely faith without action is dead

Let Your Kingdom come

Lord break this heart

Your name

Is a shelter for the hurting

Jesus Your name

Is a refuge for the weak

Only Your name

Can redeem the undeserving

Jesus Your name

Holds everything I need

The Power of Your Name(Integrity Music)

 14For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there arise respite and deliverance to the Jews from another place, but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed. And who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"     (Esther 4:14, 21st Century King James Version)
