“As I have said, the first thing is to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself… Great peacemakers are all people of integrity, of honesty, but humility.”
― Nelson Mandela
The late Nelson Mandela was an enormous impact on the world. He was that type of person that made you wonder what the heck you were doing with your own life,
I for one, am eating a banana — it’s all about baby steps, right?
There are many like Mr. Mandela that seem to have that ‘it’ factor; the ones that unlocked their awesomeness early on in life, put it into action, and subtly sedated us with their kindness and bountiful servility (I’m talking to you, Craig Keilberger).
When it comes to Jesus, I think it’s safe to say that he takes the cake. After all, he preformed astonishing miracles, walked on water, ministered to all, laid down his life for others (aha, humanity), and rose from the dead! Plus He really really loves us! A fairly well-rounded guy if you ask me.
I believe there comes a time in every Christian’s life, when they ask themselves how they are going to make an impact. What they are going to do, that will catapult them to the next step in their walk with God; the moment that they feel they are fulfilling God’s plan or living in a Christ-like way….Jesus level:
The state in which a human decides to emulate the characteristics of Jesus Christ!
This proposition has been meandering around in my mind for some time, and this year I’ve really learned a lot about myself. My relationship with the Almighty is forming more day-by-day, and I’m starting to acquire who I am and what I want to offer. Of course, this is all thanks to His tough-love teaching style, but I’m coming to adore what I believe God has in store for my life.
I have been urged in many ways to start ministering to other people. This coming fall, I have a perfect opportunity to do so as I begin university! God is so good, and I’m so excited to prove how He is working in my life.
Watch out, I’m entering Jesus level.
