There’s a lot of hype going on these days because the iPhone 5 is coming out soon.
Because of all the iGadgets, our life has never been the same – from music to movies to reading books to social networking. Steve Jobs and Apple have successfully revolutionized how we live our lives.
Or has he?
Why did he have a measure of success?
He was crazy enough to believe that he could change the world.
I remember when he was trying to get John Sculley to join his team. John Sculley was the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Operations for Pepsi Cola Company. He was trying to convince him to come on board.
Here’s what Steve told John:
Because of this, John Sculley was able to successfully apply his marketing prowess in the personal computer market.
Steve Jobs had the audacity to believe that he could change the world.
Here’s my question to the church:
How dare Steve Jobs have a greater vision than the church of Jesus?
How dare us allow Steve Jobs have a greater vision to change the world than God’s very people?
And iPhone or iPad will last you 3 or at most 5 years…
The Gospel of Jesus will last for eternity. It will transform a life, a family, a city and a nation.
I know it has changed mine. And I bet my life (if I were a betting man) that it is going to change this nation only if we continue to honor God and make disciples, advancing His kingdom in every sphere of society.
Steve Jobs was crazy enough to believe that he could change the world with gadgets.
Do we have the audacity to believe that the Gospel of Jesus is potent enough to change my world, your world, our world?
“Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
So… who’s crazy enough?
