What would happen if Christians decided to do something about the trash in their context? What if Christians got involved in politics and started supporting Christian values, morals, and ethics? What would happen if Christians stopped complaining about at all the problems in the apartment complex and started helping their neighbors one by one? What would happen if Christians began to care about their neighbors and blessed them? What would happen if more Christians served on the school board and with the PTO? What would happen if more Christians chose to take action instead of take shelter? I believe that everybody would win and society would be a more beautiful place. Christ’s love would be shown, people would find hope, families would be strengthened, and lives would be changed. We would have less suicides, fewer murders, and higher moral standards.
I am convinced that now is the time for Christians to step up and make a difference in their context. In addition to volunteering at Freshwater, serve on a community board, get involved in politics, do something to help clean up the things in our society that are broken. Vote people into public offices that support biblical morals and values. Jesus never tells us to sit on the sidelines, he tells us to get in the game. How are you making a difference? God doesn’t expect you to fix everything wrong in the world, but he does expect you to adopt a piece of it and let the Holy Spirit work through you to clean it up. Together, we make a difference.
