OneLife is a movement in this country with the vision to “connect and equip young people to become exceptional leaders in every sphere of society.” They are passionate about building up young people and training them in how to lead, so whatever area of society they are going to work in, they know how to be exceptional leaders and bring God’s Kingdom - His life and His love with them wherever they go.
OneLife believes there are seven main spheres of society: Arts and entertainment, Business, Education, Family, Government, Media and Religion.
Have you ever thought about where God might be calling you to go in the future?
Do any of the above spheres immediately jump out at you?
What do you feel passionate about?
Where do you feel you could lead and become a person of influence?
The theme of the conference was Set Apart. Have you ever thought what it means to be Set Apart? I believe to be SetApart is to live without fear. To be someone who is not afraid to go after what is right and to stand up for it regardless of how others will see you. To not be afraid of who you are, who you were created by God to be. To recognise you are a person of influence, and can lead those around you in everything you do - to not conform, to not follow the crowd.
But to be truly SetApart, we need to be living a life that is directed towards God, and towards what His plans for us are. Because it is only then that we will be living in true freedom and happiness.
“... For I know the plans I have in mind for you, declares the Lord, plans to save you and to give you a future and to give you hope.”. Jeremiah 29:11
During the Conference we looked at the book of Daniel, (which is an incredible book in the Old Testament that if you haven’t read I really recommend it!) Daniel shows us what it means to live a life of exceptional leadership, and to be truly Set Apart. He refused to worship - put his faith, trust in or give love or even admiration to – anything that was against the will of God. Daniel recognised that if we
“Seek first the Kingdom of God, then everything else will be given to you” Mt. 6:33
Because in all the difficulties He went through, Daniel put God first and God made sure that Daniel went totally unharmed.
You are called by God to be an exceptional leader. The world is changed by people like us and how much we are willing to be SetApart. Check out the Onelife website if you are interested to know more http://www.onelifeonline.org.uk/ You have ONELIFE – lead it!
