TEXT: Mathew 5:13-14,
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”

INTRODUCTION
Life becomes interesting when it is lived to impact on the lives of others. A life that is lived on oneself is really a small package.
A successful life is designed to be a world changer! In order to live a highly impactful life, you must strive to become a world changer.

What does it mean to be a world changer?
1.    It is to live a life whose influence goes beyond you and your immediate environment.
2.    It is to live beyond your time. Such that after you have gone, the storm of time cannot erase your marks in life.
3.    It is to live a life of great effects in audio-visual dimensions. There’s something to hear about and to see about you.
4.    It is to be a person of global influence. A person whose influence is not limited to his locality.

The Making of a World Changer…
a.    START WITH YOURSELF FIRST!
The starting point of all changes is internal; any lasting change must begin from within. You can never be a world changer until you have changed yourself.
The change you want to bring to the world must begin with you.
For you to set out as a city sweeper your own door step must be clean first of all.
I once read the story of a man who on his death bed was lamenting his failed life dream of changing the world. When he was much younger, he had a dream of changing the world, but as he grew older, the world wouldn’t change.
At that time, he changed his dream to changing himself but it was already too late as a result of his old age. The man admitted he could have started by changing himself, so he would have become an example to his immediate family and then to his community and eventually to his city, nation and ultimately the world!
The lesson here is: you can’t change the world until you have changed yourself first of all.
b.    HAVE A GLOBAL VISION
One major key to becoming a world changer is to possess a global vision.
It takes a global vision to cause a global effect in the world! Without vision a man of great potentials ends up in great confusion.
Vision is the capacity to see tomorrow before it ever arrives.
It is navigating into the waters of the unknown in order to arrive at a preconceived destination.
Vision is the capacity to see Alabama, United States of America from Alaba Lagos Nigeria.
It is seeing Bangkok Thailand from Bariga Lagos Nigeria.
You are doomed without a dream.
Life booms when a dream is in place.
It is seeing with the eyes of no limit!
It takes a global vision to register a global impact in life.


c.     DEVELOP MULTIPLE COMPETENCIES
Being a world changer demands that you develop multiple competencies that will create unprecedented platforms for you in the world.
We live in the 21st century that is characterized by unprecedented opportunities and accelerated changes. In order to take full advantage of these you must be a person of multiple competencies. Being good at many things is a major edge at such a time as this!
Competencies are worked at and not wished for. With consistent baby steps, you get better at them on a daily basis. It’s just like learning how to drive or play the musical keyboard. Some other competencies could include learning another language, learning to play another musical instrument, learning one skill or the other.
Go for multiple
d.    RELEASE YOUR GIFTS
In proverbs 18:16, the Bible says ‘The gift of a man makes room for him and brings him before great men.’ 
Your gift is your lift to rule the world. There’s something invested in you by God to cause a change in the world. It’s your gift!
Yours may be a musical CD album or a book, a drama, a movie written by you etc. It is the release of your gift that guarantees your capacity to change the world.
Remember, potential unexpressed today turns to pain tomorrow!

e.    YOU NEED THE POWER OF GOD
“But you shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria and in all uttermost parts of the earth.”   Acts 1:8
The last missing piece of the puzzle of changing the world is the power of God. As a believer, you must understand the need for the power of God in this world. We live in a very spiritual world; there are spiritual forces and entities on the prowl at the snap of the fingers.
It takes a greater spiritual force to combat the evil forces at work in this world. However, you need a dynamic relationship with the Holy Spirit of God before you can be endued with His supernatural power!
Power is the dynamic ability to cause changes…

In conclusion, you are destined to be a world changer. Your destiny is to leave an indelible mark too difficult to erase by the storms of time. However, you must accept responsibility to change the world by first of all changing yourself, possessing a global vision, developing multiple competencies, releasing your gifts and deploying the power of God.
