More Than Just Making It

 Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, 13 but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.  Ma 24:12,13

I just finished reading two great posts at Faith and Footsteps and Justified Freely

Look folks, we all pretty much can read the handwriting on the wall. We are in a season of increasing wickedness and the love of many is certainly getting a little chilled.

There’s a lot of chatter going on about how we have to change the world. Questions like, “How do we fix this?” ,“What needs to change?” and “Who’s to blame?” all make a regular circuit across the interview tables of the reigning talking heads.

These are great questions. I’m just not sure they are the first questions we ought to be asking ourselves as individuals. After all we can’t change anything in the world without first changing ourselves.

I think the first question we each need to ask is, “In light of what is happening in the world, who do I want to be?”

I want to be a champion for Christ! I want to be a man of passion! I want to be  someone who at the end of his days has used every ounce of grace given him to make a difference! I want to be a guy who does more than just make it into Heaven! I want to be the guy who gets and keeps the victory in life’s battles by daily utilizing the power of God!

  1. I really love what you want to be, Pastor J! I, too, want to be a champion for Christ! I want to be the best Christ-like example for my son! I want people to see and hear only Christ with any form of communication from me whether it be a wave hello, an email, a text, a phone call, or speaking face to face! I want to make a difference for His Kingdom! Most of all I want people to know the LOVE of Christ as I do!!!
