Whether the sport is hockey, wrestling, swimming or gymnastics, winning coaches do not tell their team to aim for "just good enough". They tell their team to overcome obstacles and play their very best.
Couples preparing for their upcoming wedding do not dream about a marriage that is "just good enough'. They are dreaming of a marriage that starts fantastic and improves from there.
JGE does not inspire people to passionately reach a goal, beat the odds, aspire to greatness, or fully live out their destiny.
Jesus Christ poured His best into twelve men. His instructions to them was not for them to keep a low profile and stay out of trouble. Jesus did not tell them to be "JGE" but to radically live out His love and change their world.
The key to becoming a radical world-changer is to be profoundly linked by love to Jesus Christ. Love propels us from JGE living into overcoming all the dis' in the world: disappointments, discouragements, and disillusionment.
1 John 5:1-4 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves His Child as well. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out His commands. 3 This is love for God: to obey His commands. And His commands are not burdensome, 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
Take the challenge and rise up as a champion of love today and change your world!
