Two-Thousand Times More Effective

Two thousand years ago the disciples of Jesus started a movement that changed the world. Are we still changing the world? We can. We can be two thousand times more effective--if we try!

Here's an example. There are 145 million orphans worldwide. Nearly 236 million of us living in the U.S. call ourselves Christian. From a purely statistical standpoint, by ourselves, we have the wherewithal to house every orphan in the world. There's enough food on the planet to feed the hungry! But the storehouse is locked.

God has given our generation everything we need to alter the course of human suffering. Change must start with us! With our transformation! Ours is the wealthiest generation of Christians ever! We can be more effective--if only we try!
