The number one challenge

“That’s the number one challenge: getting over the idea that there’s nothing we can do.”

–Gary Haugen, CEO and President of International Justice Mission (IJM), from DVD Not For Sale on sex trafficking

I don’t ever again want to hear myself think, on any topic of injustice or poverty or ignorance, that there is nothing I can do.

God did not make porcelain dolls.  He made His believers new creations to go out into the world and reach the lost for Christ. There is no darkness that can stand in His way.  We carry His light not only for our own sight, but for the illumination of all around us.

Who will go up against sex trafficking, slavery, abortion, starvation, persecution, domestic abuse, epidemics, homelessness, illiteracy, gangs, corruption?

Jesus!

The question is, Who is going with Him?

I raise my hand and cry out, Me!  Me, Lord!  I will go with You!

“You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill can’t be hidden. People don’t light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before people in such a way that they will see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16, ISV)
