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.
