Some people feel … to use a metaphor, “Why polish brass railings on a sinking ship?”
What is it you do? Other than working to support loved ones … I mean? Are you involved in your community trying to make it better? I decided to get involved in the particular battle which the Holy Spirit laid on my heart.
To explain my activism, pre-born babies being ripped apart within their mother’s womb are are not brass railings on a sinking ship!
God has not called us to simply shrink away from the horrors going on in our world today, nor to only vote and leave it to our corrupt, myopically motivated politicians, nor does only voting to assuage the guilt of our inaction.
Neither can we abandon the battle, though we may have no specific individual power to put an end to any of the moral battles on our doorstep, it’s near impossible to ignore them nowadays.
So, consider if … …
• You were locked away for a crime you did not commit … on death row?
• You were in your mother’s womb as forceps entered to crush and rip your body apart?
Would you not want someone to speak up … to say STOP!
‘Round the entire globe, no matter where you are, you can see people are reeling from the state of our world’s conflicts … many are numb, saying “it’s all over” or “What can I do?”
We are being challenged …
* To confront our condition,
* To abandon it and see what happens, or
* To transform it!
Some believe we are already past the point of no return or believe this is the end. If that were so, would IIChronicles 7:14 have been written into scripture?
After all He called us not to just … be entertained, nor to watch arrogantly and marvel at man’s foolish endeavors knowing that we’re okay. Instead, He called us to the great commission!
It’s time to reconsider the story of Jonah. I believe we’re all in danger of becoming Jonah!
Don’t get angry at the worm nor me; we’re just trying to get the attention where it needs be.
