Followers Of Jesus Need This World
“. . .you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NASB)
Yes, we followers of Jesus need this world. We need a point on which we can focus our love and concern. We must be engaged with the world, taking the leap of faith that affirms belief in God’s power expressed in Christ, namely, that the lost can find salvation. That hope can transform the hopeless ones: the poor, the prisoners, the blind, and the oppressed. As we seek to play our part in God’s redemptive mission, we must engage the world, with confidence that the Spirit of the Lord is upon us, the followers of Christ who make up His Church today.
