Christ is the difference maker. The person whose life has been transformed by the Lord Jesus Christ, then and only then, is able to be a difference maker in the life of someone else. Christ’s passion becomes our passion. His purpose becomes our purpose. Who we are precedes what we do.
Our degree of usefulness in this matter of making a difference is directly related to the degree of difference we allow the Lord Jesus Christ to make in our lives. Compassion is absolutely necessary to becoming a difference maker.
