You Must Make a Lasting Difference in this Life
It is not enough to dream you wish you could change things all around you and change the world. As believers in Christ, we have been given the most powerful resource any human can ever dream of having. Human Exceptionalism can only be understood and found by comprehending that we are created beings in the image and likeness of God and we not masters of all we are and what we do. We have a divine mission to make a difference in this world.

For the one who has not reconciled with God through Jesus Christ in the born-again experience, the enormous inward emptiness grows with time reaching a level of deep hopelessness. Nothing can fully satisfy, and life becomes more and more shallow.
