What is the key to transforming the world? More education? Better government? Clearer communication? While these items have their place, none of them hold the real key to lasting change. Jesus, however, provided us with the key to bring about radical, lasting transformation.
I have always found it interesting that Jesus never made it easy for others to follow Him. He constantly challenged people to consider the cost before they embarked on the journey (see Luke 9:57 – 62). Failure to count the cost could lead to some unfortunate consequences.
