Can God use us?  I have one hundred and twenty answers to that question— the 120 charter members of the Jerusalem church.  They had nothing more going for them than a fire in the belly to change the world.  Luke recorded their stories in the book of Acts.  It cracks with the sounds of God’s ever-expanding work.

Would God do with us what he did with his first followers?  You know ours is the wealthiest generation of Christians ever.  We have enough food to feed the hungry.  And we have enough bedrooms to house the orphans.  I don’t mean to oversimplify these terribly complicated questions.  But this much is clear: God has given this generation, our generation, everything we need to alter the course of human suffering.  Let’s live in such a way, that the world will be glad we did.
