We are no good to the world until we die to the world.  When we are filled with the life of heaven, we can enter this world and make a difference.  In a small or large way, we are a means of “Thy kingdom come.  Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.”  Our world needs to be touched with the life of heaven.  When we are attuned to that life, we will make a difference where we work, live, and play.  That will change the world for the better.

“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1 John 2:15 (NASB)

“Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” John 20:21 (NASB)
