We have a golden opportunity to reach the next generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Actually, it is more accurate to say we have an obligation. After all, Jesus commanded us to go. The Holy Spirit was given so that we would have power to be His witnesses. We have the right to speak freely, if we insist on it.
Another election has come and gone and now it is time to go back to work, and use the rights and resources God has given us to change the world. And what we have is considerable! We are able to bring the gift of eternal life to a lost world! Do you not believe this is a big deal? Do you really believe some government benefit or tax break is more important than this??
If you want to save the world, you need to start early…at childhood. Save the kids, and the grown-ups are different in the future. Yes, I know, this requires faith and patience. But that is how we inherit the promises of God.
We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. Hebrews 6:12 NIV
The desire for instant gratification is the cause of our downfall, and that of the whole world because we do no do our job: preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ. We want answers NOW. We want results NOW. We want satisfaction NOW. This leads to many grievous errors. It’s why we worship at the altars of our political movements, our comforts, and having our own way. Let us not forget that it is to THE CHURCH that the Bible is written when it gives rebuke.
Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. Revelation 2:5 NIV
