Change Yourself, Change the World

I do not quarrel with Karl Marx’s statement that “religion is the opiate of the people.” I never try to defend religion. Religion has spawned wars. Many so-called religious people have been characterized by prejudice, pride, bickering, and even tolerance for slavery. However, I would call you to a simple faith in Jesus, who said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Are you really concerned? Are you disappointed with society? If you are, I challenge you to take the first step. I challenge you to look at yourself.

Watch: Billy Graham preaches on change.

Prayer for the day

Forgive me, for so often failing to love my neighbor. May my life speak to others of Your love and compassion, Lord Jesus Christ.

    Above message is simple but very profound. Love your neighbor as yourself. Thank you. I want to be able to give in the future a monetary gift, but mostly my word indeed to the glorification of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. I believe I can do that other than through my church, but also through the Billy Graham organization but Brother Graham does not want Glory. He wants the attention turned to Jesus, God the Father and to the Holy Spirit three in one. I do know that about our brother in Christ, Billy Graham. May God’s will continue to be done through the Billy Graham organization, which includes all those involved, and thank you for following God’s will.

    What a miracle! Even if we don’t have the ability to change our lives and become free of sin, Jesus gives us the power to change! All we need to do is come to Him and accept His gift of salvation. I pray that all might receive Jesus as Lord and Savior.

    Self examination in many cases will leave us woefully lacking. Matthew 7:4 says, “Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?”

  4. Gerry says:

    I thank God for continuing to reveal the great truths of his Holy Word to all who ask. What a treasure trove of wisdom and great instruction. It sustains me and helps me grow in an often perplexing world. Thank you, Lord.

  5. Angela Garsnett says:

    Thank you for this. I, too, struggle with this daily. A lot of times I feel so hurt by the people I love but I hold on to the Lord in these trying times!

  6. Marisella Brown says:

    I struggle with this daily and thank you for reminding me of who I am in Christ Jesus.

    Pray. Pray, always Pray. This keeps the Soul connected to the Holy Spirit. Though we are lowly sinners Jesus loves us and will make everything new for us..
