There is a song by one of my favorite bands, Delirious?, called History Maker that explains our mission as believers.
Yes, it’s true today that when people stand
With the fire of God, and the truth in hand
We’ll see miracles, we’ll see angels sing
We’ll see broken hearts making history
Yes, it’s true and we believe it we’re living for You
I’m gonna be a history maker in this land
I’m gonna be a speaker of truth to all mankind
(History Maker, by Martin Smith of Delirious?)
What a message! What a calling! You and I are meant to be history makers. Note the line that said that we’ll see broken hearts making history. Everyone of us has a story. We all have something that has affected our lives, but God has created each of us to be History Makers.
God is not limited because of where you have been. His hands are not tied because you have made mistakes in your life. His purpose for you is unchanged no matter where you have been or what you have gone through. You are to be a history maker!
Think of the rough shod group that He chose as disciples. They all deserted Jesus when He was arrested. They ran away like cowards. Thomas doubted. Peter denied. The rest departed but yet they were His disciples. This was the lot that He chose to represent Him. After the resurrection and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit this roughshod group of disciples became fire-baptized History Makers.
My favorite verse in all of the New Testament records, "These who have turned the world upside down have come here too." (Acts 17:6)
They can run but they cannot hide. The world changers had come there to that town too. Oh, if it could only be said of today’s believers that we have turned the world upside down. It would be an awesome thing if the world would be a little intimidated because of the church’s power.
You have the ability to make history wherever you are. On your job you can turn them upside down. In our community you can make a difference. You can change the world one life at a time. Child of God, you are a history maker!
Let’s go out and win the world for Christ. Let’s look at the opportunities God has placed all around us and work for the furthering of the Gospel.
