It just takes one person who is willing to step out of the ordinary to start a movement. It just takes one person who is willing to stand up for what they believe in to point people in a new direction. It just takes one person who is willing to take a risk and do something no one else is willing to do. Think about this. YOU could be the one. Yes YOU could be the person who could change the course of history. God loves to use ordinary individuals who are willing to do what he asks. There are so many examples of this throughout history. One of my favorite examples of this is a lady named Rosa Parks. Think about this. Black people. People who were born black. Something they can not change automatically put them in the back seats on any public bus route. Except one day this lady Rosa Parks decides she has had enough and decides she will not give up her seat on the bus to a white man. This one time act by an ordinary person becomes the symbol for the Civil RIghts Movement in the US. Rosa Parks was willing to be the one.
Here is the deal. God is calling you to be the one. To be the one in your office who is willing to serve without complaining. To be the one who goes out of their way to love people no one else will love. To be the one who will step up to the opportunity that is in front of you. Are you willing to be the one? We have been looking at the story of Jesus’ disciples in a boat during a bad storm on a lake and Peter getting the idea to walk out on the water with Jesus. One of the most interesting things to me is the other eleven guys watching Peter walk out to Jesus on the water. One out of twelve decides to be the one. One out of twelve decides to take a risk. One out of the twelve believe they can do what Jesus does. YOU could be the one.
Keep your eyes open today for an opportunity to be the one.
