Changing Your World by Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Topic: Changing Your World
Matt. 5:16 -Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Change does not take place by changing location, nationality or church; no, change takes place when you change. Nothing can ever change until you change. Change is not moving to a new location because an Alligator cannot change to a Crocodile no matter the change of location.
Change begins with you changing. Until there is a change on your inside, there cannot be a change around you. There has to be a change on your inside first before you can effect changes around you.
It is a changed man that changes the world. It is your change that can determine the extent to which you can change others. There cannot be a change until there is a change in your character because character is the real you and the foundation for success.
If you want to be a world changer, determine to honour God by living and standing for godliness. The easiest way to change the world is to have character. The world is looking for changed people.
James 3:11-14 -Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. 13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. 14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
You must stand for something; you must have values. Martin Luther King Junior said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”
The loudest message you preach is the life you live. Just change and your friends will follow you to Christ even without preaching to them. The life you live is a greater message than the ones you speak. You can’t change the world until you change your life. Change starts with a renewed mindset and by self-discipline.
Rom. 12:2 – And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Your mind should go for the things that are perfect; it should go for the word of God. Your mind should only do what God wants you to do; anything contrary to that, your mind has to drop it if you want to be a world changer.
God bless you
