I think we as Christians need to stop in our tracks, stop worrying about me, me, me, and really look at what is going on in the world today. No, I don’t mean Covid-19. No, I don’t mean world wide pandemic. No, I don’t mean quarantine and social distancing. I mean — look at the people who are wanting more information about what is happening than the media can offer them. Look at the people who are searching high and low for something greater, and they just don’t know where to look.
People are scared. They are looking for someone to turn to, and they don’t know who. The media is scaring them, Facebook is bashing anyone who ventures outside of their home, and they don’t know where to find guidance and hope. It’s our time disciples, now more than EVER in history, to show people someone who won’t scare them, someone who won’t bash them, someone who won’t argue with them, but instead someone who will love them for who they are and guide them with every single step.
You guys, its our time to GO. I heard a quote this week that said “the church isn’t empty, it’s deployed” How true is that?! If this isn’t God telling us to get up out of our pew and GO, then I don’t know what is. What if it isn’t the government who has closed the church doors. What if it is God closing the doors because that’s the only way he can make us understand that we need to GO and we need to GO NOW.
He has prepared us for such a time as this.
He has prepared us to be ready to go and make disciples.
He has prepared us to fight the good fight of faith.
