Once you mix leaven into your dough, there’s no way to avoid it spreading through the whole lump. In the same way, the kingdom of God is unstoppable. No one can keep it from penetrating society. The amazing thing is, it spreads and increases through simple, individual people like you and me.
How does this happen? Your life is connected to a bunch of other people’s lives: your close friends and family, your work relationships, your acquaintances… even the barista at your favorite coffee shop. In turn, each and every one of those people is connected to a whole slew of others. Right now, all the humans alive on the planet are connected to each other through this massive network of interpersonal connections.
We know that every individual human life matters to God’s heart. In His estimation, every single last one of us was worth the blood of Jesus. The ultimate price, vastly more expensive than we could even begin to understand, was not too much to pay to save each one of us made in His image.
We are getting to know this glorious love that surpasses knowledge, each day a little deeper. This deepening heart knowledge helps us understand why each life matters so much to Him. However, there is something else to grasp about the infinite value of each and every human life. Each one also matters in a different way: strategically. Remember, absolutely all of us alive are connected to each other in a massive network. As a result, what happens to an individual person happens to humanity. The ripple effects are inevitable, just like the saturation effect of yeast.
This is part of the reason the enemy fights so hard to keep just one life down. He knows the powerful ramifications the redemption of even one soul has on this world. When that one person you are currently praying for comes into the fullness of what God has for them, watch out! The multiplication of that miracle is going to expand exponentially into so many other lives…
This is why everything you will do today matters. Everyone that you will touch today matters. So let every action, every smile, every interaction, and every word be charged with purpose. When you invest the life of God into your part of our human network, this world really does become a better place. We urgently need what you will contribute today!
Do the actions and interactions of one individual person seem of weighty importance to you?
