How can the world know the love of God, if no one tells them? How can the unsaved reach the shores of forgiveness if no one shares the Gospel message? How can the struggling find stability when the air waves are void of Truth? How can the suffering experience the “Balm of Gilead” if no one is offering the application? How can the afflicted receive healing if no one is willing to pray with them?
Why is the neo-Christian so concerned with exposing the vices of our Country while being timid in presenting the Truth of God’s Word? Why are Christians so concerned with Political influences on the Church and not discerning enough to influence our Government with the Truth? Why is the Church bold to condemn secular lifestyles and timid to display Christian lifestyles?
Have you ever wondered how those whose life styles are off the “normal grid” promote their agendas? When a person is confronted with words or actions that do not agree with their lifestyle, they use the “offended” card. It has come to the point that they look for opportunities to promote their lifestyle by bringing attention to those that are opposed to them. To help present their “misunderstood” actions, the media cranks up the propaganda machine in an attempt to champion their cause. When are we going to understand that it is not the politicians with the power, but the Media that swings the pendulum of public opinion! Sadly, some Christians have joined the propaganda parade by quoting the media more than the Scripture! When will the Believer realize that much of the Media news is geared to sensationalize and promote special interest groups? The use of exaggerated statistics has influenced many people. The Media’s agenda is to influence people. Much of public opinion is molded by the relentless presentation of biased reporting.
Christians must come out of their “spiritual closets” and promote the Truths of God’s Word. Instead of being swayed by secular opinions, let the Believers stand as representatives of the Kingdom of God. God has never been on a losing side and He never will. If God be for us, who can be against us? The United States Supreme Court can make its decisions, but it is God’s Court that will rule. People are afraid to speak up for fear that they will offend someone. Some Christians are so timid to share the Truth that they would rather pray their way out of personal responsibility and let someone else share the message. In the mean time, they surround themselves with other timid Christians, and play church once a week. When will Believers realize that people are only a heartbeat away from eternity? Where they spend that eternity will be decided in the here and now. We must step up to the “pitcher’s mound” and deliver the Truth. We are so concerned about not offending someone that we fail to realize that we offend them by not sharing the Truth. Instead of looking for the “escape clause” (a.k.a. the Rapture) in our Christian contract, let us share the Gospel with a rapturous excitement!
