POINT 7: CHANGING THE WORLD
According to Adam Smith, ‘To feel much for others and little for ourselves; to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections, constitute the perfection of human nature”

God has a giant-sized purpose for each of us to achieve – to create a better world for the human race. All we have to do is to seek God’s will, obey His teachings, and to LOVE one another, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

A lot of people think you have to do great things to make change in this world. However, Howard Zinn once said,

“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world”.

Conclusion

Ephesians 2:14-18

“For Christ himself has brought peace to us. He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in his own body on the cross, he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. He did this by ending the system of law with its commandments and regulations. He made peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in himself one new people from the two groups. Together as one body, Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross, and our hostility toward each other was put to death.

He brought this Good News of peace to you Gentiles who were far away from him, and peace to the Jews who were near. Now all of us can come to the Father through the same Holy Spirit because of what Christ has done for us’.

Barriers: because of sin, since Adam, man has struggled with disunity, hostility, and separation, from man to man, man to God. God didn’t want this happen so badly that His Son died on the cross, giving man another choice toward godliness and being masters of all life.

Because of the cross, the walls have been “broken down”. There can now be reconciliation with man and God; selfish, greedy hearts can become Holy Spirit-filled ones; and man can become as one. Differences in race, gender, religious affiliation, levels of income – it doesn’t matter, someday every day Christian would be considered a child of God, and the differences that separate us will separate us no more.

There will be a day where the walls of selfishness, hostility, greed, and disunity won’t prevents us from loving one another, there would be a day when everyone is considered the same, and where people trust one another without boundaries. There is victory in Ephesians 2:14-15.

In our houses, let’s knock down some walls. “With man, this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
