God has a way of allowing us to be in the right place at the right time. I was walking down a dimly lit street late one evening when I heard muffled screams coming from behind a clump of bushes. Alarmed, I slowed down to listen and panicked when I realized that what I was hearing were the unmistakable sounds of a struggle: heavy grunting, frantic scuffling and tearing of fabric.
Only yards from where I stood, a woman was being attacked. Should I get involved? I was frightened for my own safety and cursed myself for having suddenly decided to take a new route home that night. What if I became another statistic? Shouldn\’t I just run to the nearest phone and call the police?

Keep using my name in vain, I\’ll make rush hour longer. -God
Loved the wedding, invite me to the marriage. -God
That \”Love Thy Neighbor\” thing… I meant it. -God
I love you and you and you and you and… -God
Will the road you\’re on get you to my place? -God Follow me. -God
A worldchanger is someone who is committed to do just that, change the world. A worldchanger is not someone who blends in. A worldchanger sticks out!

A worldchanger finds the most intense demands that Jesus places on Christians and doesn\’t shy away but goes after then passionately and does whatever it takes to get the job done!
