If…then why?


If we are indeed a new creation in Christ, why does our society continue to rot in corruption?

If believers are indeed the light of the world, why does the world continue to live in darkness?

If the majority of citizens claim to love God, why is there so much hatred among men?

How can people lift up ‘holy’ hands to God in worship and then soak them in the blood of others?

How can people who preach forgiveness hold grudges against their offenders?

How can we preach of a merciful God and yet be so judgmental of our fellow brethren?

Christians may not be of this world but are definitely in it;

It doesn’t excuse them from shining their light to dispel the darkness that threatens to swallow everything up;

What’s the use of the church if the society in which it is cannot feel its impact?

Membership in a mega church doesn’t guarantee salvation or eternal life

Salvation is not a life insurance which can be passed on to beneficiaries

It is a personal experience of confessing Him as Lord and receiving Him into your heart

If we as believers are supposed to be Christ-like, then let love ooze out of us like a breath of fresh air;

Let’s be honest in our business transactions;

Be generous with our pardon

And sensitive in our giving so we don’t do it just to feel good

But to meet the needs of people around us

People should see, feel, smell and hear Jesus wherever we are

How are you serving society with your Jesus-filled heart?

Is it just to warm the pews on Sunday mornings?

Or is to tell the world of the One who loved them so much that He died to set them free?

Are you hoarding your faith just to enjoy the benefits alone?

Or are you sharing your love for Him for everyone else to come on board?

Sharing is caring.

    Am hoarding mine for the times I have tried to share I have been misunderstood, dragged into an argument with people who just want to argue, shared with people who seemed to under but are hypocritical in faith so I agreed with self and moved on

      Some people will naturally be argumentative but it shouldn’t stop us from sharing with someone else who might desperately need it. It won’t always be easy but we need not give up.

  2. A number of Christians need to read this and ponder over it.
