Knowing Jesus changes things so that a person can't just sit back in a comfortable lifestyle and do nothing while others swallow lies or are persecuted. Knowing Him means being a constant witness of the Truth and a constant catalyst of change for a better world and for the Kingdom. Whether it is on a large scale or a small scale, those who belong to Jesus make a difference.
"I have one desire now-to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it…I’m taking the Lord at His word, and I’m trusting Him to prove His Word. It’s kind of like putting all your eggs in one basket, but we’ve already put our trust in Him for salvation, so why not do it as far as our life is concerned?" - Ed McCully, Through The Gates of Splendor
