Passionate followers of Jesus will always be a minority. But such a creative and grace-driven
minority can change a community, a country, and the world. This happens when God’s people are courageous in opposition, committed to advancing his kingdom, directed by his Word, and willing forgive, serve, and love others.
Jesus was a humble and gracious servant. He left heaven, emptied himself of divinity, lived among us, and died for our sins. When we accept the invitation to follow Jesus, we receive his grace and forgiveness. But we are also called to live as he lived, serve as he served, and love as he loved.
As we speak truth in this world, we must always temper it with grace and love. When we live and
walk in the light of God’s truth, we will put Jesus above all else, place our confidence in him, and press forward toward his will each and every day.
What we focus on impacts our outlook, attitude, and reality. God calls us to keep our eyes, hearts, and attention on what honors him. When we do this, we learn to navigate conflict humbly, rejoice even in hard times, pray in times of anxiety, and walk in God’s grace through all of our days.
