The keys guarantee change-as long as you fight for that change and do your part.”

CHANGE THE WORLD

First Published May 1977

If sometimes you're discouraged with the world and the way it is, don't give up! We read that usually governments and armies and wars and great powers, great empires, change history and the face of the earth. Sometimes we're discouraged and think, "well, who am I, what can I do, it all seems so hopeless and impossible!

"It looks like there is nothing that one person can do to change things for the better, so what's the use of trying, what's the use of doing anything?"--and we're tempted to just give up and let the world go to hell, which it seems to deserve!

You may not be able to change the whole world, but you can change your part of the world.

If you have changed one life you have changed a part of the world, and you have proven that there is hope that it can all be changed. If one life can be changed, it shows that there is a possibility that more lives can be changed and many lives can be changed and whole areas can be redeemed and the world can be changed, starting even with one person, just one person--maybe you!

You say we can't change the world? It's too late, too bad, too big, too difficult? Well, why don't you just try changing your part of the world?

Why don't you start with you, your own heart, your own mind, your own spirit, your own life? If you even change your life you've changed a whole universe, the universe of your body, and the sphere in which you live. The place and the very atmosphere around you will be changed if even you change yourself by the power of God's love.

Change not only your own life but those of your own family, of your own home. You will have a new home, a new family, with new lives, new minds, new hearts, new spirits, filled with the truth and the love of God, the life of God, the word of God.

A whole home has been changed, and that's a whole world, your world! Change the world in which you live, your life, your home, your family, and you've changed the world, your world. Then your little family can start trying to change the neighbours next door and your playmates, business associates, social associates, schoolmates, tradesmen, visitors, the people you contact from day to day.

You can go out and make a special effort day or night to reach lonely hungry needy hearts in the places where they gather for recreation, solace, comfort and entertainment, seeking love, seeking truth, seeking something they know not what, but seeking happiness, desperately seeking to satisfy their longing yearning hearts that are so empty and so barren and so desolate for lack of the water of the Word, for lack of the warm love of God.

You can't change the world?--oh yes you can! Change the world you're living in. Start now!
