Life right now is full of surprises! These unusual times we are living in, is giving us an opportunity to decide who are we going to follow? Do we follow the words and actions of a younger generation? Do we follow the traditions of the past in our nation? Do we forge to a new way of living? Do we go back to the way of life before the virus came? Do we follow the news media? Do we follow the Supreme Court?
These and many more questions are coming to us today! The world is trying to tell us how to act, speak, who to interact with, and what is right or wrong. With people occupying parts of cities, trying to intimidate city governments, defacing our historical sites and statues, looting, rioting, and hating anyone who disagrees with them, now is the time for us, the true believers, to stand up and witness to a lost and dying world, the love of God!
God’s Love Never Fails
1 Corinthians 13:8, “Love never fails.” That’s right. The love of God never fails. So, in the midst of ungodly people doing ungodly things, we need to show them, the true love of God! That does not mean we roll over for them and act like what they are doing is right! We do not coward down to them. But when we encounter them, we give them the facts about God and what He desires for them to do.
Remember 1 John 4:4, “…greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” The greater One lives on the inside of you! So, let the greater One be seen by an unbelieving world.
I John 4:5-8, “They are of the world: therefore, speak they of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. 7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”
So those who are going/doing things against the will of God, the world (news media, unbelievers) hears them. The world pays attention to them. The world tells us Christians to bow out knees to them! The world tries to take our rights to worship away from us, while they do not obey their own biased rules and regulations. The world tries to impose their lifestyles on us!
Since we are of God, because God is in us, those who have God in them, hear us. Our words resonate with each other as believers. But those who are not believers, who are not born-again, do not hear us. Because of the greater One who lives inside of us, we know the difference between truth and error, they do not!
The Enemy’s Weapon is Fear
1 John 4:18, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” Those who are full of fear, cannot operate in the love of God, while they are in fear. So, they cannot distinguish between truth and error. They are deceived into thinking, that they are right, and the rest of the world that does not believe like them is wrong. Their tactic to change the minds of others is intimidation!
In this day and time, as a Christian, if you can be intimidated, you will be. I choose not to be intimidated! I choose to stand up to the devil, and speak the will of God, no matter what he is saying to me! I also choose to show this unbelieving world, what the true love of God looks like! How about you?
Fear brings torment with it! Those who are tormented are not walking in the love of God! Torment leads to unrest, which can lead to violence and destruction. The devil hates America and is trying to destroy our nation! Wake up all Christians! Our freedoms are at stake. Wake up, unite, and speak to this wave of evil and denounce it with the Word of God!
Show the destructors, that God’s love is greater than them! Tell them, that they are loved! Speak to them, that Jesus loves them, that He died for them, and that He was raised from the dead, so that their sins could be forgotten. That they could be redeemed back to God!
Let’s tell them and show them, that Jesus is Lord over America, the world, and desires for them to be a part of the family of God! If we do this God’s way, we will see God’s results.
Yes, our nation has some issues we need to deal with. But it is time for us as a nation, to be led by God, not evil people! Let God arise and every one of His enemies’ scatter!
Let me encourage you to follow God, which means to follow Jesus! Jesus will never disappoint you. Never forget, Jesus loves you!
