Intentionality VS Idleness

As I look at this picture of my team member from my last trip to Cape Verde, it is a reminder of the struggle & frustrations I believe I see in many believers….and that struggle & frustration is a world in need of the hope of Jesus yet so few willing to work the fields, a lack of those willing to intentionally share what Jesus has done in their lives, & those who know Christ as their Lord & Savior, but are comfortable sitting in their comfy sideline game chair with a “I’m not called to play that position” mentality while the game rages on.
When will His Bride rise up & do what He has called us to? When the media portrays every last one if us as bigots & homophobes? When there are no more babies to kill and parts to sell?
We haven’t been called to judge the world, but to preach the gospel into all the world (Matthew 24:14), to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ (Ephesians 5:21), to agree with one another so that there are not any divisions among us, perfectly uniting us in mind & thought (1 Corinthians 10:13) & to love people, show grace & mercy just as He loved & showed grace & mercy to us (1 John 4:19, Luke 6:36)!
Church, you have a choice…stay silent, holding His Hope inside, & making sure your chair is all comfy for the next game season, hoping like hell the Coach doesn’t call on you….or you can find your voice, share the hope that lives IN you, get out of that chair & ask the Coach to put you in! We have been silent long enough!
