We say we do... But Do we believe?

Change” is the million dollar word this year, and we’ve been beaten over the head by it in this “so historic election.”

Personally, I’m glad that Tuesday November 4, 2008 is finally here, so we can get to Wednesday and start life again. I write this blog with such a saddened heart, I've been broken by what I have seen in Christians during this election year.

Pastors and Christian leaders have been so passionately involved in the whole process. They have been banging their drums louder than normal. Tuesday my gmail was bombarded with emails that stated that no matter what happened tonight God would still be in control. Facebook statuses have also been dedicated to proclaiming this message.

  • My question is this: “Do you really believe that He’s in control?”
  • If you do (and He is and He will always be) what does that mean for your life?
  • What do you think that God is more focused on: a new American President or the 4.5 BILLION lost people all over the world?

From my time in the Word over the last few weeks God has shown me that we spend so much time talking. What the world needs on Wednesday is for the American church to come alive not for a political vision, but for God’s ultimate vision which is saving people through his son Jesus. 4.5 Billion lost people is such a huge task to waste so much time devoted to an election. Instead we should Pray and GO into the fields where the harvest awaits. Today! This is what Jesus commanded

2He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. –Luke 10:2-3

“If we truly believe the Gospel outlined in the Bible the result is a radical change in our daily lifestyle.” –David Platt

*Today, Ask God who you know that needs to hear about the gift of salvation through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Then Go share the greatest story of change in the history of the world.
