Current world events may feel overwhelming. It might feel like you have nothing to offer, that you can’t make a difference in our country, our world. Not true! YOU CAN make a difference and God is calling each one of us to do just that!
It is time to set politics aside and do what is right for humanity! It is time to do what is right in the eyes of God! It is time to get rid of the old and bring in the new. God is calling the church to pay attention…to listen…to act. God is shaking things up to raise the dead in the church. We can no longer sit back and do nothing. We can no longer avoid stepping into the realm of the “uncomfortable.” I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Holy Spirit comforts the disturbed and disturbs the comfortable.
It’s time to wake up! We can no longer do nothing. We can no longer be lukewarm (See Revelation 3:16) So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
Will you risk? If so, how? Are you afraid to risk? Don’t be! God says, “I Am WITH YOU!” If you think being a Christian means showing up for church on Sunday and putting money in a plate and then going about your daily business as usual on Monday…think again!
Being CHURCH means, YOU make a difference. Being CHURCH means putting your body on the line. Yes, and often, being church means fighting for justice, whatever that looks like for you. Mine may not be marching in a protest. Mine may be through a keyboard and telephone. My making a difference won’t look like yours. But right now, right here, when you feel Holy Spirit calling you to ACT…to BE CHURCH, you will KNOW what that looks like for YOU!
Listen, Look, Learn, Ask, Pray!
“What are you asking me to do Lord?”
Listen and then GO make a difference!
YOU can be part of RAISING the DEAD church.
Don’t be lukewarm!
Instead, Raise the Dead!
