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. So 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's 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!
Well, 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's 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'll 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 just the way we do.
You can go out and make 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!--And we're changing it! You are changing it if you're doing what we're doing and have been doing for only a few short years. We are changing the world! Praise God! Thank You Jesus!
CHANGE the world you're living in! Start NOW! Be a faithful witness and a testimony to what has happened to you where you are, what God has done for you, what His love and His truth have done for you personally, and you can start changing your part of the world!
My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.
On September 24, 2023, I had an accident and broke the bone of the tip of my left elbow. A boy ran in front of my motorbike less than 2 meters from me as I was leaving home. I stopped suddenly and my front tire slid on the sandy concrete road which caused me to fall. I did not hit the boy. On October 18th I had surgery done on my elbow. The doctor put in titanium rods to hold my bones together. The entire procedure including an entire week in the hospital was roughly $4000 USD. This was done in the Philippines where my wife and I have been living since June this year.
It would be a super blessing to us if any of the visitors of this website can help us cover this expense!
