Four Marines are dead.
ISIS is killing Christians.
The definition of marriage is under attack.
Political correctness is ruining our society.
But, as Christians, we can’t allow these hardships to keep us from our mission: To share the gospel and make disciples.
Jesus said things like:
Turn the other cheek.
If someone makes you walk one mile, go two.
Love and pray for your enemies.
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
If I’m not careful, I spend too much time focusing on all the bad things. I shake my head at the depravity of man and forget that at one time I was depraved too.
But we still have time! The world hasn’t ended yet!
If we’re still here, that means our mission isn’t over.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel. His name is Jesus.
My goal for the next bit is to simply shine the light of Christ into the dark places, showing those who are still wandering the way home.
It’s time to stop freaking out about the darkness when we have the light of the world–and all His power–at our disposal.
