Do we ever consider the far reaching nature of our influence on a global level?
The influence of one person can move a nation, lead an army, direct a revolution, carve out a place in history, or change the life of one person.
Too often we underestimate what can be done with our influence on one person.
Instead of thinking how we can start a worldwide revolution, think about changing the life of one person. Who knows how God might work through the one we influence to make a global difference.
Perhaps we need to start with opening the door of opportunity.
A revolution carries different meanings, depending on the individual listening.
On one hand, the idea of a revolution is an overthrow of a government or social order to be replaced by a new system. The American Revolution is only one of many identified throughout history.
On the other hand, the idea includes revolving around or orbiting another object. We associate the idea with the number of times a planet revolves around the sun or a moon around a planet.
Both ideas can be associated with the role of leaders. There are times when leaders need a revolution, a means to replace the current system with a new one. Spiritually speaking, this revolution occurred in the first century with the beginning of Christianity. Not only was there a replacement of the Jewish system, but Christianity replaced “all” systems.
Additionally, the revolution of one object around another indicates the power of consistent endurance. Regardless of the challenges, a sense of tenacity exists and strengthens when consistently enduring to reach the goal.
The ideas express a beautiful picture of Christians who understand the need for one more revolution.
