Faithful News & Writer's Journey
The phrase "life-changing" is certainly bantered about with an abandon of late. Particularly in reference to movies, books, and now - even in the applauding of teachings or sharings.
Take just a moment to step back in time. Say to the time of the knights of Old England. Imagine that you have been commissioned to be the king’s ambassador, representing his majestic reign to the entire world. Adding a brilliant sheen to this exuberant plot you are also the son of the king, which gives you, even more, prestige among the citizens of the kingdom. Adding even more, thrills — your elder brother is the prince and has traveled extensively before you, bringing peace, comfort, and life enriching hope to the people of the land. The people have been without hope for generations, and now, the king and his son the prince, as well as yourself, offer a new chance for life.
By way of this simple illustration, we see that what is meant to be "life-changing"…is you! You, as son and ambassador, bring the life changes to the people of the kingdom. Everywhere you step life can be victorious, and it can change, because you are there. You represent the king and his power. You represent the creator of all creation. With your travels deliverance and truth. With your travels not judgment and condemnation, but love and hope for a better life.
Whether at work or at play, surrounded by darkness or light, we represent the life-changing Father of Light. Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (2 Tim 4:2)
