Good morning everyone! Welcome to Friday! I know that is has been a while since I have written in this blog. Needless to say 2020 has been a bit distracting. However, I was blessed enough to get a really nice laptop that my wife agreed to and so I am back with my first post in a while. Forgive me if my writing skills have faded a bit, I’m sure they will be back shortly…
So, 2020, we have just about seen it all. Plagues, riots, economy in shambles, you name it, we have seen it. Never before in my life have I seen our country, heck our world, in such disarray. For me as a Christ Follower, however, it is not unexpected.
See, the Bible has predicted all of this thousands of years ago. That the world would go through a time like never seen before. A little secret though; this is nothing compared to what is coming. The “birth pangs” that we are seeing now are just a reminder of what is to come. So, what now?
Well, the way I see it two things are on the horizon:
*The stage is being set for the Beast of Revelation to come on the scene and “unite” the world.
*Or, a revival is getting ready to sweep the globe like never before.
Thing is; even though eventually the first option WILL happen, I think we still have the ability to see the second option materialize. How is that David? Simple. Love. And not just any love, but Agape God’s Love…
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
The thing that many of us forget, yes even you Christian of 30 years, is that love is not a feeling but an action. An action that Jesus Christ demonstrated to us by His sacrifice on the Cross. He didn’t stop there either; He commands the same type of sacrificial love from us to others! (Obviously not on a Cross, save the emails). That is where we must begin…
Revival is possible but we have to start by being the Light; by being the example that Christ set forth for us and by asking the Holy Spirit to guide us along the way. Its not about your political stance, its not about Church membership, its not even about YOU. There are souls to be won for the Kingdom and that can only be done through the Love of Jesus Christ.
So, the decision is up to you. As always, we have free will to make a choice. Will that choice be to simply stand in the corner, feet planted, mind closed to your favorite political candidate? Or will you open your heart to Christ who has the power to bring some much needed love to our land. Choose wisely, the fate of many depends on it…
Love and blessings to you all
In Jesus name,
