YOUR LIFE MEANS MORE THAN YOU KNOWGod wants you to be a world changer … starting right where you are today. Your acts of service, words of truth, love for God, care for people, and all you do each day can have a transformational impact on the people around you. In a world filled with darkness and discouragement, the light of heaven can shine through you.Jesus was the most influential person in human history. He brought joy to the sorrowful, hope to the broken, purpose to the wandering, and forgiveness to all who would receive Him. The ministry of Jesus continues today. One way the Savior brings His world-changing message to this generation is through you and me. It’s time for us to let the Holy Spirit flow freely. It’s time to influence the world with the love of Jesus. It’s time to maximize our impact for God!
