Everything is speeding up. The resulting pace affects our ability to judge accurately so it’s important to connect with truth in every way possible. Decisions and choices that demonstrate faith-centered biblical world view are a vital impetus to move things forward along lines placed by God — from average to something higher, from blind dullness to the real thing.
The real thing: Christian men and women will sacrifice everything today for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Even if their Christian faith, culture, and people group suffer persecution for their actions. Despite hard conditions of life, as for example those conditions resulting from poverty, for those under persecution poverty is not the main challenge, minute-to-minute survival is.
And so, the rest of us—everyone not in the constant life and death struggle—should seize every opportunity to enlarge truth. Choose the Lord’s portion today. Prioritize His concern… for believers and also those who don’t yet know Him. We are their voice. We are multiplied voices speaking for lives presently on the line.
Does the price others pay move me? Does it stir passion to pray? Do I stand up? Do I speak up? Do those who are born-again give voice to the real thing?
Your Kingdom come, LORD!
