Change our World
You Are the Evidence of God’s Wisdom
from Called to Conquer by Bishop Eddie Long
Today’s Scripture Reading: Ephesians 3, 10–11
Key Verse: Ephesians 3:8
This grace was given, that I should preach . . . to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.
God gave Himself to us in Christ Jesus. Then He “gave us” to the world. He commanded us to change our world in His name.
It is vitally important to understand that no other plan exists to transform this world.
We have joined many fine groups and organizations, but if they are not connected with Jesus Christ, they are powerless to change the world! The best that man’s institutions can offer is a temporary fix to “dull the pain.”
The psalmist wrote, “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, / The world and those who dwell therein” (Ps. 24:1 nkjv). God created this world, and only He can reform it. The way He has chosen to change it is through the church! That should tell you how important your kingdom work is in the earth.
Lord Jesus, thank You for investing so much in me. Now I invest everything I am and ever hope to be in Your kingdom. Let Your will be done in me on this earth as it is in heaven. May my life lived by divine grace provide absolute evidence of Your wisdom to my neighbors, associates, and community.
