Lately it seems there are more and more tragedies occurring in quicker succession. I know there are terrible things that happen all the time, it just seems like we are hearing of more and more with less time in between.
My heart breaks for this world; the world NEEDS Jesus. And I can’t help but think, what an incredible time to be a Christian! We get to share the true HOPE of the world, we are called to share Jesus with the world.
We live in a world that continues to shift away from the Lord. There is evil in our world, but there is also good. It’s important we have eyes and hearts to see the light.
“Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:7-8
Bill Hybels shared a few years ago that the local church is the HOPE of the world. How true that is! Amidst the darkness and sin stained world, the local church are the hands and feet of Jesus.
“And let us now grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” Galatians 6:9-10
Our call to action, our marching orders….continue to do good! Continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus. People desperately need Jesus, and we are here to share the good news, the hope of the world.
We are here for such a time as this!
