Where we are and where we go from here

18 Mar

Life moves fast … And the older I get, the faster it seems to move.  You wake up one day, and it is ten years later and the world in which we live has changed dramatically.  Sadly, the world keeps moving away from God.  Sometimes the changes are breath taking.  And we wonder how we got to this place …

We (the church) can blame the devil, we can blame the world, we can blame everyone in sight.  But the last time I checked, OUR GOD is far more powerful than the devil, than any force on this earth, than any prince or government or social system.  And we are called to be His presence on this earth.  In this culture.  We are called to be IN the world, but NOT OF the world.  We are called to be salt to a decaying world, and to be light to a darkened world.  So we need to stop playing the blame game and BE THE CHURCH God has called us to be!!

I don’t think this is a calling to thrown stones or to burn the current system down.  We need to BE salt and light.  We need to LIVE as people with hope and peace.  If we are the genuine article, people will see.  And they will want to know the difference we know!!  If they look at our lives and can see no difference, they naturally ask themselves “What is the point??”  And, quite frankly, they have every right to ask that.

Are you unhappy about our government??  THEN VOTE.  Seek out those who honor God and vote for them!  This will require all of us to get to know candidates, get to know issues, and be involved.  And if there are no candidates worthy of your vote, maybe YOU need to run??  NO MORE EXCUSES.  If you are unhappy about the way things are, the only way you can make a difference is get involved!!!

And if we get involved in all of these things, and do it in the name of Jesus Christ, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  AND if we are following Him, we can get all of these things in our world headed in the right direction.  But it takes time.  And it takes OUR WILLINGNESS TO BE INVOLVED.  ALL OF US.

Where do we go from here?  YOU will determine the answer to that question.
