We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us--and we ought to lay down our lives for one another. (1 John 3:16 NRSV)

Mother Teresa said once in an interview, "It is very, very important, that the families teach their children to pray and pray with them." Then she added, "And we have enough reason to trust God because when we look at the cross, we understand how much Jesus loved us. It is wonderful to be able to come to Jesus! That's why God made Him--to be our bread of life, to give us life! And with His life comes new life! New energy! New peace! New joy! New everything! And I think that's what brings glory to God, also, and it brings peace." Then she said, "I've seen families suffer so much, and when they've been brought to Jesus, it changes their whole lives." I have also seen lives changed by the power of the cross.

When Jesus guides our lives then we will be an agent of change. And Jesus will change us for God's glory.

Will you allow Jesus to use you as an agent of change?


Dear God, change is often hard on me, but I want to follow your will. Use me as an agent of change. In Jesus' name, Amen.
